This all started on May 19 with a visit to a local ER....my daughter who is 28 and is autistic with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) came out from a nap with 2 swollen eyes, she looked like a prize fighter. I asked if she had fallen out of bed she said no..the hospital gave her gel to put in eyes and sent her home (first mistake) and she would not let us put it in her eyes....she kept rubbing and rubbing until it got very bad...her whole face was swollen and getting discolored....went back to second hospital and they finally admitted her and she was in ICU on an IV for over 2 weeks and then they admitted her to the hospital floor. She struggled to the point they had to restrain her to keep in the IV and do blood work. She had a very bad bacterial infection and because of the struggles got cuts under each eye and we were afraid...that is her eyesight after all. This hospital kept insisting they were only a short term hospital and tried to get her out. They sent her home on June 22 and within 15 minutes she had opened the wounds under her eyes and we sent her back to the hospital and went to the ER and they gave us a hard time about readmitting her...they kept her overnight on a psyche unit and would not let my husband in to see her....they sent her to a horrible place where we did not want her to go that has been in the news with deaths, abuse etc and thank God they refused her and said that they were a psychiatric hospital, not a medical facility and she needed medical attention because they sent her on a 3 hour ambulance ride ALONE and she reopened the wounds again. After much hesitation and a compassionate psychiatrist there they admitted her but this time was putting restrictions on how long anyone could visit. DDS found a hospital they said could work with her special needs and they sent her there and they sent her back after an overnight stay.....they said the hospital she came from okayed it which was a lie.....she spent 3 days in the ER because they did not want to admit her and I sent many emails and called to doctors, psychiatrists, lawyers, news media....finally she was admitted over the weekend and now tomorrow they are sending her to a center that cares for the severely disabled and the reason they could get her in there is because she was sectioned....that other hospital that she stayed in overnight said she was trying to hurt herself. I am sure she just wanted out. It was a strange place with not a person she knew and no family were allowed. This new place is supposed to be compassionate from what I hear but now I am not so trusting because they said that before. I am concerned because someone I know went there and they did a medication wash on her and she was there 6 months. My daughter has already been gone over 2 months and another 6 months I could not stand and I don't think she could either.....my daughter is not violent to anyone....she can have self injurious behavior but would never hurt anyone else and never has. She is not psychotic....she is autistic and the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is actually worse than the autism. She is smart as a whip....uses the computer, does beautiful drawings and has a fantastic memory......can anyone offer me any hope?
