*Author of original report: My records also completely falsified
*Consumer Comment: Not by any means the first time this has happened at Sage View Psychiatric Center
While dealing with a number of other physical health problems, I was admitted voluntarily to Sage View with severe anxiety and suicidal ideation. I did receive adequate treatment for several days until my care was turned over to Jeremy D. Flagel. He was immediately dismissive of my other health concerns and told me that I would have to wait until after I was discharged to find treatment elsewhere. ( I had already discussed the treatment I would need with the nurses on the unit and they assured me things could easily be taken care of there.)
After thinking things over for a while, I informed his social worker Amanda (last name unknown) that I felt I had no option but to leave and seek help elsewhere. She asked me a few basic questions and then whether I was still potentially suicidal. I answered honestly that I might be, but again felt I had no choice but to leave. She then left the room to consult with the doctor.
About 15 minutes later she returned with Dr. Flagel to a public area of the unit and, without asking any questions or attempt to gather more information, he immediately accused me of pretending to be suicidal so that I could continue to stay in the unit. I was completely shocked and bewildered by his accusation. I was asking to leave the hospital so where did any suggestion of a desire to stay even come from? I asked him to clarify the intent of his accusation. His explanation made even less sense than the accusation itself but suggested that I was preemptively pretending to want to leave so that they would not be the one to ask me to leave at a later date.
Oh my God, the absurd paranoia, legal liability or whatever his motivation, my brain could not handle at that moment. I was in a terrible almost traumatized state of mind and just decided to do and say whatever they wanted so I could get the hell out of there. I did NOT, however, give in to his request that I deny my potentially suicidal state.
For at least two days after that I was closer to suicide than I had ever been before. The one place in the entire county where you are supposed to feel safe and supported in those circumstances, and you leave feeling it is actually the least safe place in your entire world. The only thing that got me through it was the will to not let him/them have the power to be the cause of the end of my life.
I will not speculate as to what kind of people this doctor and his social worker really are. But to make such accusations under any circumstances is at least extremely reckless and unprofessional. And in my mind, very sick.
