How a surgery in 2020 turned into police brutality, and a record with the county office. March 10, 2020 2:49 pm UC San Diego police 5150 hold after refusing to treat me on the basis of autism. Video footage, police reports, and plain text.
this March 2020 story begins with a hearing impairment and recommendation for ProTactile ASL provided by Deaf Community Services (DCS)
screen capture of DCS assessment recommends “a speech-to-speech transliterator as an auxiliary aid for interactions with case managers, medical professionals (ie: doctor’s offices and hospitals), and when accessing other public services pursuant to the American’s with Disabilities Act
On March 10, 2020 I was scheduled for a surgical port placement, a procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia. I have an open contract with DCS for transliterator services to assist with hearing and communication, but they informed me that they cannot be with me at the appointment. This is because Interventional Radiology is a separate unit in the hospital, and DCS allegedly is only contracted with the emergency department. I had a surgery scheduled for 3:00 pm. I was fasting, spoke to the anesthesiologist the day before, had surgical clearance, and arrived to admissions at 2:00 pm. The surgeon refused to perform the procedure and spend 5.5 hours trying to figure out how to detangle himself from his ignorance and prejudice.
6:23 pm “left patient in room 41 with security”
At the end of the working day, they powered off the lights, evacuated the building, and called their hospital security to remove me from the hospital premises. The UC San Diego Thornton hospital police handcuffed me and dragged me out to the curb with a wheelchair.
March 10, 2020 UC San Diego police department dragged me with handcuffs and a wheelchair to the curb of the hospital building. They demanded that I “keep walking” and “don’t stop or we will put you in jail” and “we are following you.” I had no battery charge left on my phone and could not call a cab. After walking for 2 hours, I arrived to a bright light in the sea of dark. I did not have my cane and am blind in the dark. The light was blue, and it was a security intercom in the basement of a mall.
this discharge was actually entered into the e-sign database as "printed" on March 11, 2020 at 8:20 pm, the day after the discharge.
