Ball Memorial Hospital, Human Rights Violator

A Trans woman and her partner have been horribly mistreated when she came into the emergency wing, coughing up a volume of blood, dehumanized and disrespected at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, Indiana. Even though she showed the emergency room staff her state ID which had her Female name AND Female marker in clear print, they still put her into their system as a Male, then proceeded to ridicule her and loudly referred to her as "IT", her partner was asked by so called health care "professionals" if she was a "HE-SHE"!! She was then quizzed about her length of time as a "Transvestite" She may have a tumor in her lungs and they have refused to treat her with the excuse that they "do not know how to treat someone like her"!! Let them hear our outrage about this gross violation of basic Human Rights! And to let them know that the Gender Identity Empowerment Coalition (GIEC) is preparing to possibly take legal action against Ball Memorial, if: 1) Education of the emergency room staff fails. 2) Ball Memorial Hospital still refuses to treat her or does not properly refer her to another care facility or program with a measure of quality health care. 3) If advocacy efforts are or civil outreach is ignored or not taken seriously by Ball Memorial Hospital.
