FULL TITLE: 'This should never happen again': Teen held against her will by hospital for 16 months describes her ordeal after finally being released
Justina Pelletier, the Connecticut teenager 'kidnapped' by hospital staff 16 months ago, has described her traumatic ordeal in her first interview since her release.
The 16-year-old was admitted to Boston Children's Hospital in February 2013 with the flu but was locked away in a psychiatric unit until this month after two hospitals clashed over her diagnosis.
'This should never happen again to anybody. To any kid or any person. They should never be put through what I've been put through,' Justina told Fox News' Mike Huckabee on Saturday.
'And they were so mean and nasty to me and they were being mean and terrible to my family also. And no-one should be put through that.'

I just saw this when I was over at Daily Mail reading celebrity gossip.
Dr. Mengele, himself, would be PROUD of Deval Patrick
and his General Court which continued medical experimentation on a minor AGAINST HER PARENTS’ wishes
OR MORE THAN YEAR as she deteriorated.
They, and the physician(s) belong before a grand jury.
“Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a law breaker,
it breeds contempt for the law.”
Justice Louis D. Brandeis
I wonder if part of the settlement with Boston Childrens Hospital will include putting her name on it.
That’s in addition to all the money she’s going to get.
Huckabee’s EXCLUSIVE interview with Justina Pelletier who was abducted by Mass. DCF
She should OWN Children’s Hospital, the Child Protective agency, every last social worker and doctor and shrink who had anything to do with this. Judges who kept her there, too. Every last one.
WELL - THANK GOD she is out of there and free— this was incredible...as a parent this is a nightmare scenario...unbelievable...that these “professionals” thought they were doing this girl justice and giving her protection...makes one turn to all natural remedies and be mindful not to seek help from hospitals...isn’t there a Monty Python skit about a patient being dragged away perfectly ok to the morgue??? comedy becomes reality!
I just finished watching the video. When FReepers are correct with predictions they are correct. That girl almost died in state care!! She is in a wheelchair now because in state custody they thought she was faking her illness and did not give her meds!
!!!!Warning everyone!!!!!! Before you watch the video put duct tape around your head so when it explodes you will have the pieces of your brain for when you enter the ER!
She should get a book and movie deal but I bet Hollywood hasn’t called yet. Hollywood probably takes the side of the government in these cases.
hollyweird takes the side of the most $$$$
This is not the only child whose rights were summarily seized by Mass Children’s and DCF. I know second hand of another child from Plattsburgh NY that went through the same thing, but her parents got her released after a little over 90 days. There are people in the psych ward there that are evil and need to have their licenses revoked on the way to a prison.
Healthcare "professionals" are catching up with the police. There's no situation that can't be made worse by calling the cops.
Doctors are practitioner - not experts!
Did you see that political cartoon this morning by Reganite Repub?
Photo of Obama - stated given any situation - he can make it worst!
I think that applies here - geez...makes one want to be armed when entering a hospital ( just in case )...I have a son - that I adopted - with CP - doesn’t speak & uses a walker - that would have devastated him (then again - I would have never allowed to happen - law or no law)-— I think aliens have kidnapped me and moved me to an alternate planet!
That website is my secret guilty pleasure; I usually click on it when I’m on hold w/some stupid bank or utility company. tee her
This is a truly terrifying story. I would die on the street before I’d set foot in that hospital. I’d let my child die too. Better dead than in that lunatic asylum, where yes, the inmates are running it.
I hope these people get MILLIONS and too bad Mass residents, I hope it hits YOU ALL where it hurts, right in the pocketbook.
Some state official woke up and said “you know, these people are going to sue the sh*t out of us, we better get that girl out before it becomes a wrongful death claim”.
Seriously, this lawsuit should be one for the record books, and include every doctor that was involved with this. And the icing on the cake should be that the federal judge should be asked to put a permanent injunction against everyone involved, prohibiting them from using or publishing “any information or derivative data or tissue sample obtained from her.”
If she had been taken by the police, a writ of Mandamus and Habeas Corpus is sufficient to get the imprisoned before a court and require the imprisoning authority to show cause for the holding. Hospitals and mental institutions can claim waivers as they are ‘theoretically’ working for the benefit of the ‘patient’! Still it is this kind of situation that gives me the goose-bump shivers at the power such as these can exercise. Scary!
Wow! It's like climate science!
No thinking allowed! Just believe what we tell you.
Kidnapping was too obvious so the alien spirits swapped out the solid foundation and walls of our home with some eco-green prison that is "sustainable" and "renewable" toward their end goal.
Trouble for them is that a free people won't just sit idle in the jails. We will always find the way out. A people with an immutable nature to be free are going to be free.
I didn't see the cartoon but it surely hit the mark. Obama's nature is the polar opposite of the American spirit. He is in bondage by nature, a slave to hate, lies, and destruction. He depises a free people to the core of his being.
May God continue to guard you and your son, as that is His nature. Even though your son can't speak literal words, he most assuredly communicates how much he loves and trusts you.
Thank you for the lind words..that boy makes me a great Dad...I cannot imagine life without him!
i sure in no time, she’ll be complaining her parents are nasty and mean.
Are you serious? You might want to read up on what happened to this girl and her family before you demonstrate your wild ignorance.
“i sure in no time, shell be complaining her parents are nasty and mean.”
I suppose she might indeed be doing that, perhaps she’s done it many times already. But the one thing I feel I can guaran-damn-tee you she won’t do is throw herself back to the tender mercies of the staff of Boston Children’s Hospital.
Sometimes you just want to know what trashy chicks with money are wearing ;-).
Or not wearing. Smiley Virus for example.
Knowing teens and working in a hospital ,I will not defend Childrens of Boston and their personal.
I know what hospitals can do and have done.I have seen both sides of many issues.
So, not knowing me, not knowing my experiences and making a little sarcastic remark, I have demonstrated wild ignorance.
I think you need to put a larger pair of shorts on because the size you have now have on is inflicting extreme pressure on your cranium.
Bout what I expected of you. Cheap shots and insults.
The actions of the Boston/Mass people have been criminal.
BTW, its ok for children to be immature. Its not ok for doctors, state agencies, and hospitals to rip children away from their family for no cause.
Next you’ll say they had cause. One hospital had 2 years of history with this girl. This hospital and doctors had 30 mins. Of course they had a financial interest in keeping her so that changes everything.
Just one cheap shot to another.
You started with the wild ignorance.
Just what is your beef?
Having a bad day?
I wonder if part of the settlement with Boston Childrens Hospital will include putting her name on it.
Thats in addition to all the money shes going to get.
I think that won’t happen because they are going to have to sell the buildings to pay the settlement.
Yeah well I aint the one bad mouthing a young girl.
Deval Patrick should be in jail for kidnapping. Government is out of control.
Good point. She looks awful in everything!
You have what is known as displaced anger.
Do seek help.
No, its quite appropriate to condemn someone who makes fun of a young girl like her especially after what she’s been through.
A scary story.
“THANK GOD she is out of there and free”
Yes. Having been held captive by the government for so long, and knowing what stories she can tell, she easily could have “disappeared”. Poof!
IMHO the video and this entire case is a preview of ObamaCare.
This was caused by a set of massive egos looking for more government grant money.
Who ever granted those doctors their medical degrees should demand that the diplomas be returned and their names forever stricken from the rolls of graduates.
What ever happened to the first rule of medicine - “First do no harm.”? That’s been around since Socrates (430 BC). Guess it doesn’t apply in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts medical system.
The two quack doctors need to have their licences revoked, arrested, tried and sent to jail for the next forty years.
The family should sue the quack doctors, hospital and the MDCF and I hope they get millions.
All anger and snide remarks aside.
I just said a prayer for you and the Pelletiers.
May you and her family find peace and comfort.
Don’t waste your time on this person. He has not been following the story and does not know what he speaks of.
It’s not worth arguing about.
I came to that conclusion when I looked heavenward.
I've gone up against six doctors before in two hospitals because the doctors had it in their minds a mental illness was causing a person I know to go unconscious, have hallucinations, agitation, very high blood pressure, head ache, thrashing, but no history of serious mental illness.
Those involved were mental health, ER, and interns. The primary care physician who knew and had the patients full medical history was not consulted nor allowed to see the patient. No medical. records were asked for. No testing such as MRI, CAT Scan, or blood work was done. No PDR of the medications was done for a week.
The doctors involved had mental illness can be the only cause prejudice and because of their own prejudice and arrogance nearly killed the patient.
The patient is a quadriplegic who was previously seeking treatment for simple anxiety and PTSD over a previous serious medical error in medication. How many shrinks prescribing antidepressants have a good understanding of possible serious adverse reactions they can cause? Likely less than 10%. But they write scripts for them like candy.
Trying to ask some doctors to consider anything other than their own preconceived notion can be difficult especially when the doctor doesn't know you or the patient. Trying to tell some doctors they are in fact wrong and you have the proof is worse. Patient I know had been given Zoloft and Dyserel two anti depressants. Had any one of the six doctors simply went on line or opened their PDR book and researched those two medications for possible adverse reactions they would have seen the same information I found on line. Serotonin Syndrome and it was approaching critical stage. They were wanting to increase antidepressants. The hospital contracted primary intern in charge said rubbish when I presented him with the information. I said oh your pharmacology professor writes rubbish? He read the name and got on a backwards bicycle real fast. The person lost some parts of her memory permanently and nearly had a stroke because the MRI they finally done a week into it after I told them what was wrong got done and showed a small bleeder in the brain.
Misdiagnosing of physical illness, medication adverse reactions, and neurological issues as mental illness, is one of the biggest problems happening today. It gets compounded when treatment for mental illness begins and other possibilities never considered or ignored.
Oh did I mention that unless a person has advanced treatment directives especially POA to a trusted family member the state becomes the one who makes decisions? Those kind of mistakes lead to the mistake made in the girls treatment. The parents had no say. The Child Protection Workers are in most states exempt from legal or civil liability added to the issue for the child in Boston most likely.
