I dealt with this doctor when my brother was in Union Hospital being detoxed for alcohol. I spoke with this woman over the phone and begged her not to discharge him, as he had been putting forth suicidal ideation. My brother had articulated precisely how he intended to kill himself - down to the weapon of choice. I pleaded with her to send him somewhere for observation; however, instead, the moment Dr. McGovern got off the phone she went directly into my brother's room, in the presence of his wife, and said, "I just got off the phone with your sister. She says you are suicidal - are you?" What do you think was my brother's answer? No, of course. She allowed my brother to be discharged without there being any ride available. This was 9 a.m. on a Friday. By 1 p.m. the police were called to my brother's apartment after his wife discovered him slashing his arm and chest. He had to be taken back to Union Hospital on a Section 12. I am considering legal action against the hospital and the doctor who disregarded this very serious issue. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone - and I pray that no one in a similar circumstance to mine ever comes in contact with her again.
