Abuse in mental health facility

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Pennsylvania

I admitted myself into a mental facility for "Post Partum" after having my child six months ago. While being there your blood is drawn every few days. One morning I woke to the nurse injecting me with blood rather than taking it. I know this sounds rather strange but this is what happened to me. Is there anything I can do about it now? I don't want this woman to abuse anyone else.

Answer

You may want to first file a report with the hospital and a police report and have the situation carefully investigated.
