On 8/3/14 I was given a no trespass notice for Saint Joesph Regional hospital in Mishawaka IN. The notice says that I can't set foot on any hospital owned property, which includes the ER. Thus If I can't step foot on the property then they are refusing me ER medical care. The hospital says the reason why they issued the notice was that I made threats to staff, that is 100% false. About 3 weeks ago I went to that ER for ER medical care, I saw the same doctor who issued the notice last year. I did not feel that I could get the proper care from this same doctor so I asked if I could see a different DR, he refused he got mad and had security escort me off the property. The doctor didn't make sure I was stable before he kicked me out of the ER. I NEED A LAWAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are going to have to pay one. I do not see this as a contingency fee case as they have a rut, duty and obligation to protect their premises and they feel you are a threat. Get a new hospital.

There is more to this story . . . clearly the hospital has attorneys that understand the requirement to give you care but something has happened that they believe gives them the right to refuse.
What don't we know about this situation?
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
Probably, there appears to be a few details that have been left out, but it is possible to trespass at a hospital
If you are unconscious, and taken to their ER by ambulance, then they may treat you.
