Iatrogenic Injury and Malpractice Leads to Patient Blacklisting
Bobbie feels she has been forced to repeatedly waste taxpayers money by going from one physician to another for help with her iatrogenic injuries, who while happy to take Medi-Care money, ultimately refused to help her. She would like to raise awareness about patient blacklisting for survivors of iatrogenic injury, medical malpractice and other chronic conditions. For more information on blacklisting see Patient Blacklisting.
Ms. Jenke states “Patient Blacklisting” is very real and can be overt like getting a discharge letter, or it can be more subtle, like it happened to her with Dr. Scott Rome, Chief of Physical Medicine at California Pacific Medical Center following Dr. Avery’s surgical damage. After arriving to Dr. Rome’s office in an ambulance, because Bobbie cannot physically tolerate riding in a car, Dr. Rome told her he couldn’t help her. Jenke described that after a brief exam she asked him if he had a prognosis to offer her, and he smirked at her as he said, “I can’t give you a prognosis if I can’t give you a diagnosis.” He said he didn’t know how to help her, and offered her no neurology referrals when she asked him, said Bobbie. He told me he couldn’t think of any neurologists that he even knew, she said. Jenke states, “I’ve never heard of a Chief of a Department not knowing of any place to refer a patient he can’t diagnose. “Medi-Cal money paid for my ambulance transport,“ says Jenke, “which means taxpayers are paying for these doctors who choose to withhold care.”
Jenke says Patient Blacklisting.org is a website that will tell you how doctors blacklist patients in subtle and less subtle ways, often after they have accepted their fee for an “initial visit“, which is higher than the follow-up visits. That can be a big waste of Medi-Care money, says Jenke.
