Man Sues Over Being Forcibly Given Rectal Exam After Head Injury

It's not quite as crazy as the headlines suggests, as the hospital says the rectal exam was a way of checking for spinal cord injury.

But the man repeatedly said "Please don't do that" and ultimately had to be handcuffed for this procedure. Sure, the guy suffered a head injury and might not be quite lucid, but don't they have any alternative procedures for something as easily-checked as spinal trauma? Did they really have to handcuff the guy and restrain him to go plunging into his squeaker?

I'm reading the details of this case and I still can't get over how frightening this all is.

Did I say "frightening"? I meant "hot."

Thanks to MichaelB.
