thanks! i did encourage the woman who had this experience to make a formal complaint, as did our group leader. i hope she does!!! Its good to have people to talk to in this group. I get a little isolated sometimes. trying really hard to go to all the support groups and activities I can.
First, welcome to our little group and best wishes in your journey to better health! Regarding the horrible and unprofessional treatment your friends have suffered, there's no excuse for it and I hope they complained until someone listened. Years ago I had to take a complaint about emergency room treatment to the state medical board. A hearing was held and inconvenienced the a$$ disguised as a doctor who verbally abused me. Stayed in his record too. While there's no way to make up for the humiliation at least your voice should be heard. I say call the press as well. Really revolting treatment, so sorry to read this. Hang tight!

many of my friends in my support group for HI?/Aids infected women have been teporting horror stories of ignorant health care providers. One's dentist dropped an instrument tray and began shouting at her when she disclosed her status, and another s new nurse practitioner whom she was meeting for the first time shouted at her in awaiting room of people for being 3 minutes late to an appointment and asked her "don't you take having HIV seriously!" I was shocked. this used to happen all the time in the early ninety's when was first diagnosed. is this a new wave of stupidity or what?
