Mental hospital sued for infringement

2013-11-20 08:53 Global Times Web Editor: Li Yan

Huilongguan Hospital was sued by a female engineer named Chen Dan for 200,000 yuan ($32,820) for infringement of liberty, the Beijing News reported.

Chen had been taken to the mental hospital by her parents against her will. After spending three days in the inpatient wards, she was pronounced to be not ill. Chen said the hospital violated her rights by failing to conduct any psychiatric exam or diagnosis before admitting her.

The hospital has countersued Chen Dan for 200,000 yuan for damaging its public image. They argued that Chen's parents were responsible for checking her into the hospital, and that they had provided effective medical treatment. Because Chen has refused to accept mediation, the case is still pending.
