Dr. Leana Wen: "I'd call security to restrain him then perform a psychiatric evaluation..."

If @realDonaldTrump were my patient, in unstable condition + contagious illness, & he suddenly left the hospital to go for a car ride that endangers himself & others:

I'd call security to restrain him then perform a psychiatric evaluation to examine his decision-making capacity.

I don't even know what to say anymore about this nightmare, except that it has to end.

4. As someone who took dex as part of my

chemo cocktail (and a very large dex dose), I can confirm these statements!

Out of all the chemo we cancer patients discussed in our group, dex by far is the one folks hated most. Depends on the dosage of course, but it can cause real rage. He must be great fun to have as a patient. Poor docs.

5. Either the inpatient medical team is

A) Incompetent enough not to let Trump know that a psych hold and eval would be the result if he tried to leave. They would then rely on T having the decision making capacity to choose NOT to pull this stunt, OR to further prove hat he is incapacitated and needs immediate psychiatric care by attemping to go ahead with it
OR
2) The inpatient team despises him enough to let him self-destruct through this selfish and ceazy action, through agreeing to his idiotic demands as to what can and can't be released at the inane daily medical press conferences which have even further destroyed this admin's credibility each day, etc, etc.

12. That's crazy talk in and of itself.

Don't let the patient leave and that's kidnapping.

The car was sealed. Nothing in, nothing out.

The only people predictably at risk are the secret service folk. And they have pretty much the standard gear that's kept many a doc safe.

The only others are risk are bystanders as he exits and enters the building, but CDC guidance is "6 feet and 15 minutes".

The rest is just Haidt's elephant talking.

6. Right?

I mean what if he decides he wants to parade down Rockville Pike wearing nothing but a backless hospital gown, a pirate hat, and waving the world's largest gummy worm. Are they gonna let him do that?

8. Jesus: "The movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do."

From WH: “Appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the President and all those supporting it, including PPE. The movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do.”
