    Forced Rectal Exam

    NEW YORK A construction worker claimed in a lawsuit that when he went to a hospital after being hit on the forehead by a falling wooden beam, emergency room staffers forcibly gave him a rectal examination.
    Brian Persaud, 38, says in court papers that after he denied a request by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital emergency room employees to examine his rectum, he was "assaulted, battered and falsely imprisoned."
    His lawyer, Gerrard M. Marrone, said he and Persaud later learned the exam was one way of determining whether he had suffered spinal damage in the accident.
    Marrone said his client got eight stitches for a cut over his eyebrow.
    Then, Marrone said, emergency room staffers insisted on examining his rectum and held him down while he begged, "Please don't do that." He said Persaud hit a doctor while flailing around and staffers gave him an injection, which knocked him out, and performed the rectal exam.
    Persaud woke up handcuffed to a bed and with an oxygen tube down his throat, the lawyer said, and spent three days in a detention center.
    A request by the hospital to dismiss Persaud's lawsuit was denied by Justice Alice Schlesinger, who ordered a trial to start March 31.

    Hospital spokesman Bryan Dotson said, "While it would be inappropriate for us to comment on specifics of the case, we believe it is completely without merit and intend to contest it vigorously."
    Persaud's lawsuit, filed in Manhattan's state Supreme Court, seeks unspecified damages. A judge dismissed a misdemeanor assault charge against him.

    Kinda sounds like the odds may be in his favor if the judge has dismissed charges against him, and refused to have the lawsuit dropped.

    Y'know... I still can't figure out how the hell a rectal exam is going to indicate spinal injury.

    Why not just to a CT scan or x-ray? The guy took a pretty good blow to the head; I'd think that they'd do one anyway!

    "Forced rectal exam"? I thought that was another non-PC term for "going to work".

    Seriously, there was an episode of Family Guy exactly like this...Peter goes for a physical and the doc gives him the "Ol' Arnold Babar" (for you Fletch fans...AKA the jellyfinger), then Peter sues the doc saying he's been molested. Upon recovering their "suppressed memories," all the men in Quohog remember that the doc has been fingering their buttholes, too (allbeit in the context of prostate exams). Peter wins and the doc's license is revoked. Then Peter realizes that he is having prostate trouble...and the only man who can help him is no longer a doctor.

    If I were the judge, I'd tell him to take his lawsuit and stick it where the sun doesn't shine...

    Term, you want to share your own personal experiences with this?

    Maybe the hospital is just getting a jump on Hilliarycare. Once the gov't starts running it, a lot of doctors will be switching to cheaper methods of checking people.

    CT scan- $500
    X-ray- $300
    Finger in the butt- $0.25 for the rubber glove....

    Oh, and another $0.25 if they used lube.
