My daughter recently had surgery and was discharged from the hospital the next day. The following day she was in a tremendous amount of pain but wasn't sure why and her physician told her to go to ER. Before any tests were done, bloodwork was done, etc., they came to her cubicle to put an IV in to start morphine. When she told them she didn't want morphine or an IV at least until after they could tell her what was wrong with her, they were quite rude just because she was questioning them. I believe she totally has the right to refuse any kind of treatment without a reason for that treatment. To make matters worse, they put an allergy band on her when she had clearly stated to them that she had no allergies. Due to questionable bruising on her upper arms, inner thighs and lower back, it was surmised that she was more than likely "mishandled" when staff was transferring her from bed to bed sometime before or after her surgery - enough to injure her back. By the way, she is not obese. Please let me know if you or any family you have would like to be treated in this same manner. Pathetic!
