I find my threshold for getting security involved is getting lower and lower for abusive or threatening behaviour. In the past year we have had two incidents where staff were physically assaulted . Fortunately no serious injuries.

Yeah, the ER is in the thick of it. I'm lucky, though today an irate patient who was denied inappropriate narcotics by our Pain Service doctors had to be subdued and cuffed by security while awaiting the arrival of Tampa's finest.

My best discovery - to help both you and your doctor during your next office visit:

Type up all of your symptoms (with dates) and make a numbered list of all your questions. My last question on the list is something like, "If I follow your treatment instructions and still feel bad, what would the next step likely be?"

This list helps your doctor because s/he can read the info faster than you can say it, and can immediately estimate how much time will be involved. S/he doesn't have to be thinking, "How many more questions does this person have ... I need to get to my next patient ... Better try to wrap this up."

This helps you because you won't forget to ask something important and, while jotting down the answers on your copy, you can get in a few follow-up or clarification questions.

A symptom journal is particularly helpful if you are dealing with a chronic or hard-to-diagnose problem, such as not-so-early-onset Lyme disease...

For illness that affects memory and/or brain function, it can be good to have a spouse or a friend with you in the doctor's office to take the notes.

I would think that you could work with the child just fine after the felonious persons have been removed. The unfortunate child has several days in the hospital, and the family member is a guest of the city/county for that time. If that family member has parental rights, video conferencing is a good thing!
