Patients’ Problems with Emergency Department Care
This chapter summarizes the principal complaints that people with psychiatric disabilities voice about their treatment in emergency departments (EDs). These include use of force by security guards and/or emergency room professionals; discrimination against people with psychiatric disabilities by ignoring or minimizing their medical complaints; facing lack of respect and even hostility when seeking emergency care; and delays in emergency room treatment.
