%$^& Hospitals!

Stupid patient privacy BS. More like $%^&ing quarantine. Has anyone here ever bothered to try and call a patient in a Mental Health Hospital? I got a good female friend of mine in a hospital on suicide watch. Long story. Anyway, her crazy #$% BF found out from one of the dumb#@$ nurses, that only I am aloud to call her (either the doc said so, or her, not sure which). So the idiot has been calling 40 times a day for the last two days, using MY name. Obviously the hospital gave up, and won't allow phone calls to her anymore. So here I am, with a friend on suicide watch, who has left 6 voice mails on my phone begging and pleading for me to call her back, and the nurses won't even give her my messages, let alone a phone call. Must be nice for the person on suicide watch, who thinks their family and friends have given up calling I even put in a call to the Chief Nursing Officer, who obviously did nothing. Her secretary asked if the CNO knew me, I said no and "CLICK." I'm half tempted to ride out there, but that would just end bad, and patients can't see visitors anyway Don't know what else to do.

To make things worse, the idiot BF has been blowing up my phone, begging for me to get a hold of her (Which I can't, thanks to him) and threatening to kill himself/dump her etc. He told me to tell her it's her fault if he hurts himself, since she won't talk to him while she is in a mental hospital getting treatment (Do we have a "I'm with Stupid" smiley?). So now I get to waste cell phone minutes/text messages trying to keep this OTHER lunatic from doing something retarded.............

I am really starting to loose faith in our society, in a major way. I think "Idiocracy" the movie is more of a prophecy than a darn movie. Can't we all just smoke a bowl and chill?

oh man that is a tough situation. maybe you can call the hospital and arrange to meet with someone there. you can prove to them who you are and explain the situation. maybe you can set a code word for when you call so that they know it's you. or something like that. the hospital should be able to appreciate the needs of a suicidal patient.

Also keep in mind that they tell the patients of calls when the Dr feels the patient is stable enough. I have even seen cases of patients being told family was checking in even though none had called. The Dr has to gain the confidence of the patient in order to help them. Again as jgano said speak with the authorities and explain the situation. Keep in mind that a non-relative basically has very little rights when it comes to mental health. Keep trying and remember negative attitude will get you nowhere.

Um... hate to admit it that I spent 72 in; she has to call out now. They will not allow that unless she is cooperating. Mental hospitals are not pleasant and perks are used as control. The BF sort of screwed you both being a problem and it may not be something you can fix. Are you just missing her calls or is it that she had so many and now no more?

Hospital told me she was discharged an hour ago, "DUDE" has the phone. Nice.

Tiny, she has been making outgoing calls to me and my fiance since she went in. I got most of them last week up until Friday. Saturday I started getting voice mails. Not sure if I just missed the calls, or if she just sent her end straight to voice mail. Doesn't much matter regardless, I suppose. I found out yesterday that I am the only person allowed to speak to her, after I asked why my name and her address/age was necessary. Apparently "dude" found this out too, and has been calling and saying he was me. After he got a hold of her, she would just hang up as soon as he spoke. That's when the hospital decided enough was enough, no more outgoing calls.

I'll have to call the place she is staying at tomorrow since "dude" has her phone. Although, "dude" told me where she was saying. Said "Someone" found out and told him. I'm half tempted to either go bring her here, or stay there with one of my babies... We'll see how the evening plays out. I think she is pretty safe where she is right now. "Dude" still hasn't stopped his ranting/raving to my phones, although he has resorted to mostly text messages lately. The messages are starting to get a little bit troubling too..

Sorry, man. It's not a pleasant thing she just went through, especially if she was stuck there against her will. She's going to be damned angry if that's the case and it'll take a while for it to fade.

simple issue. Go grab said "DUDE" bring out 30 foot of tow strap. Wrap round his ankles. hook other end to truck and beat him into a bloody pulp. Then give him phone bill. Kick him in nuts(numerous times if need be) - ( I really hate that I said that but he should not be able to reproduce.) Drive I mean tow said "DUDE" to his house still attached to truck. Go grab friend bring her back to your house were you can keep a eye on her. If said "DUDE" calls again call the police. Issue solved with said "DUDE" hope your friend starts feeling better. Had a friend go through it too. It took me finally just yelling at her to do it in front of me. She didn't, she just broke down crying yelling at me saying she couldn't believe I just told her that. She couldn't believe I didn't care! Told her threw it all I have not left your side not going to start now. It worked she has not even thought about it sense. BTW still really good friends.

I don't know your friend and I'm not judging, but this sounds like she might be a little co-dependant. That can make things very dificult for you. Unhealthy relationships like that are hard to deal with and it's hard to help people in them.

Do NOT stop for lucky poker coffee near the nurse's station.
