however in the question posed to the attorneys, I asked whether the nurse and nurse practioner would be allowed to call security and have the patient thrown out of the Emergency Room without ever being evaluated? Wouldn't the hospital security have to prove someone actually did in fact record? Wouldn't they have to contact the local police and file a complaint rather than merely escort the patient out of the hospital without ever been seen by a doctor? If the patient said he/she overdosed on a drug such as Xanax, wouldn't the hospital assume liability by throwing the patient out without being seen by a medical doctor?
