Trans teen kills himself after suicide watch hospital nurses kept calling him a girl

http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/trans-teen-kills-suicide-watch-hospital-nurses-kept-calling-girl/#gs.Y8NrCb0




Kyler Prescott, who was just 14 when he died, was overcome with anxiety and depression when committed suicide in May 2015.
In the weeks before his death, the Southern California teen was admitted to Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego, in the youth’s psychiatry unit for a 72 hour suicide hold.
But when he was held there, hospital employees kept referring to Kyler as a girl ‘he went into a spiral’.

2. Unbelievable that a nurse in the psychiatric section of any hospital would be so abusive.

She should have been fired and the hospital sued for malpractice.

7. This is utter b.s.

This is utter b.s. I am not enamored of parents who let their kids decide their gender when they are six and make non-reverse-able changes in the name of tolerance but you can bet that at fourteen, his gender identity was solid.

I can see the hillbillies not understanding this but nurses at a psychiatric hospital? The first thing the Doctors and the nurses ask in case like this is your preferred gender pronoun and the name you want to be called by. The article says the parents knew of his gender identity and I am reasonably sure, they passed this vital info on to the hospital.

So, with this info:
Rady’s Children Hospital in San Diego has a Gender Management Clinic to help young people dealing with their gender dysphoria.
One would think this hospital would be well staffed to children dealing with this issue and it is not an easy one for those undergoing it, even in 2016.

I wonder if we will see this type of behavior has happened before. Did they hire a conversion therapy type here?

This type of thing is going to happen at a Dignity Hospital; how will they hide behind their religion when someone innocent is dead?

8. How could they be so unconscious?

And they're on suicide watch with not an iota of sensitivity? I don't expect them to understand the transgender experience, (but they should be trained on it), but this is just an example of them being totally numb to their responsibilities.
