Its been a long time since I have been in here but right now I just need to vent.. My youngest daughter 14 has been hospitalized since last Thursday for depression. The dr. is supposed to call and get my permission to put her on medication. The only consent I gave for was tylenol, ibuprofen and otc medicines and he would call about the prescriptions. Friday evening I call to check on her. He still hadnt seen her but would that night. Saturday evening I call to talk to her and she tells me that Sat. morning he put her on Trileptal. I never received a call. I left a message with the nurse to have him call me. Sunday at visitation, the nurse tells me it is in her chart that I gave permission. Um no I never have spoken to him. Leave another message to call me. Monday the same thing I never hear. Tuesday I finally manage to talk to the therapist about this. He was left another message. Wed. morning I get fed up and call the patient advocate. SHe hands it over to the nursing supervisor who said it was charted so I gave consent. Im telling them I have not spoken to the dr. He finally talks to me this afternoon and bald face lies to me. Yes, he did talk to me. It was a very short conversation. He felt she needed trileptal, claritin and benadryl to sleep, I supposedly said okay and hung up. Um, Im talking to a dr about prescription medicine for my daughter and all Im going to say is okay? Seriously and I sounded asleep. He also told me with her behavior problem and attitude for authority she was going to need to be in there at least 2 weeks probably more since it takes a long time to overcome these behaviors. Problem is my child doesnt have a problem with authority. She is depressed. When I told him she doesnt have oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder or was psychotic she was depressed his attitude changed. He realized I knew a little something and just wasnt going to take it sitting down. I have talked to my mother, my husband and ex husband and we all agree. Tomorrow she will be coming home and I will figure something else out.
