(This post in only partly satirical.)
In the nuthouse, on the plantation, everyone is reduced (mostly by their own devices) to a cog in the wheels of some bureaucratic machine that they don't own or understand and are not allowed to operate or control. Staff at Elgin Mental Health Center waste huge amounts of creative mental energy figuring out how to not be responsible for anything and still get their pension.
They have no concept or definition of any actual, exchangeable product which they want or which they can produce in their jobs; they only think in terms of administrative processes that they have to participate in, which might have some purpose that no one has ever adequately explained. It's pretty bleak for employees of the so-called "forensic mental health system" in Illinois. They are very degraded people.
Hence, a great many necessary forms.
In a staffing today, Syed Hussain suggested to a "patient" that if any conversation with him was unwanted, the "patient" could put a request in writing, and Hussain would refrain from any communication or evaluation from here on out. He added something about not being qualified....
So I suggest the following standard form, whenever it might apply, for any of Hussain's "patients":
NOTICE OF SPECIFIC REFUSAL
I, ________________________________, being a so-called "patient" on the Pinel clinical unit at Elgin Mental Health Center (EMHC), which is a facility operated by the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS), and which poses as a hospital, hereby direct, according to my rights as a human being and under the law, as follows:
1.) I wish to have no further communication, conversation or interchange, of any sort, direct or indirect, ever again, with Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D., psychiatrist.
2.) I hereby revoke any and all consent that I may have ever given or implied in the past, to be treated or evaluated medically by Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D.
3.) I hereby refuse all consent for any clinical or administrative staff at EMHC or in IDHS to receive, give or exchange any information or opinions concerning me, and all mention of me (by name or otherwise), from, to, or with Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D.
4.) I hereby refuse all consent for Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D. to read, review or access my medical and mental health records.
5.) I wish to never again view the unpleasant countenance of Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D., or hear his voice.
Although I have no need to justify the above wishes and refusals, as these are all within my rights as a human being and under the law, I nevertheless state the following, merely to clarify my own opinions about Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D., in case it might enable anyone at EMHC or in IDHS to benefit or clarify their own experiences with him.
1.) Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D. is extremely, capriciously arrogant. He appears to believe that he understands his patients better than they understand themselves, and can therefore dictate what medical treatment they should accept without adequate explanation, collaboration or consent.
2.) Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D. is extremely, and capriciously, dishonest. He lies under oath in court, and intentionally creates false records to be entered into evidence in legal proceedings.
3.) Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D. clearly harbors covertly hostile attitudes toward his patients, and organizes efforts among staff on the clinical unit to discredit his patients' efforts to advocate for themselves, thereby rendering collaborative treatment plans unlikely or impossible.
4.) Dr. Syed Hussain, M.D. clearly follows an extreme and eccentric faith characterized by apotheosis of the brain, forced medication and dehumanization of individuals who have been declared, however arbitrarily, to be "mentally ill". There is no possibility that I can ever benefit from his professional "help".
