ED Magedson – Founder
Lakeside Behavioral Healthcare2911 Brunswick Rd Memphis, Tennessee United States of America
I am a 62 year old retired registered nurse so I know a thing or two about the healthcare system. It was obvious to me that Dr. Fu was not acting in my best interest but intended to keep me confined as long as possible to run up a big insurance bill. During my forced confinement, no therapy was received unless you consider 38 women herded together in a big room with color crayons and coloring books for 12 hours a day to be therapy.
On Day 3 Dr. Fu stated that he intended to keep me confined for another 5-7 days but hospital administration reversed this decision and I was allowed to leave AMA within two hours when administration was notified that the situation would be brought to the attention of my senator, my congressman and Medicare Fraud and Abuse.
I have never had a psychiatric diagnosis and it is beyond comprehension that the unethical actions of these healthcare professionals Dr. Utley and Dr. Fu could land me in a mental institution and keep me there for 3 days in order to do a favor for a sister and to run up a big insurance bill. Allegations of abuse have been registered with the TN Department of Health Board of Licensure against the healthcare professionals who participated in the violation of my civil rights during this fiasco.
In addition, a formal complaint has been filed against Lakeside Behavioral Center with the TN Dept Health Office of Licensure of Healthcare Facilities.
