Someone I know went to an ER and was sent away and told she had "anxiety." Thankfully, she went right back to the ER! That's when she had the heart attack. They kept her a few days afterward and treated her like royalty, trying to shove under the rug that what they had done in the ER had nearly killed her, and they might have been able to prevent her heart attack, too, had they taken action instead of kicking her out like that. The fact that they knew her prior psych history caused them to profile her and judge her too quickly and prevented them from giving her a decent exam. These prior records should not prevent a person from getting care if they need it.
