I was wondering, does anybody know if a physician or hospital worker can be sued for putting voluntary medical patient for an illegal psychiatric hold? (52/50). The physician was likely on drugs, and social worker was clearly a patient abuser. I would think that malpractice would be unlikely, since there was no “physical injury” but who knows. Money is not an issue though, I know that many others are being abused by these people, and I would like to help bringing them to justice, or getting their licenses revoked. Any insight would be great.
