blood draw It's a patient's worst nightmare. A Harlem woman is suing a doctor for informing her she was HIV positive, the Huffington Post reports.

The 31-year-old woman is identified in the lawsuit as "Jane Doe" to protect her privacy. She said she became a patient of Dr. Pavel Yutsis who violated state law by tricking her into submitting blood for a HIV test without her written authorization.

Most states require written consent before administering an HIV test, and patient counseling if the test comes back positive.

"I was tricked. I never signed any paper," the woman told DNAinfo.com last week. "It was a slap in the face."

According to the lawsuit, the woman had undergone gastric-bypass surgery at another clinic when a nutritionist referred her to Dr. Yutsis' Lifex Medical Care clinic for treatment of a Vitamin B12 deficiency, due to her low red blood count (anemia).

Most healthy people get their vitamin B12 from their diet. When normal treatment failed to elevate her white blood count to within normal range, Dr. Yutsis recommended she take an HIV test to determine the reason for her low white blood count. But since vitamin B12 is not normally associated with the white blood cell count, the woman refused.

She explained to Dr. Yutsis that she was only concerned with healing from her surgery. "I wasn't really concerned about anything else," she told DNAinfo.com New York.

On Sept. 9, 2011, Dr. Yutsis' assistant asked Jane Doe to submit to another blood test. According to the lawsuit, Jane Doe "was unaware that her blood was going to be tested for HIV."

"She was never asked to sign a form consenting to the test and was not given counseling to prepare her for the administration of an HIV test," the lawsuit says.

On Sept. 22, Jane Doe was informed by Yutsis that she tested positive for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

"My body got numb. I was not good after that," the woman said. "I was tricked with something I had no clue about."

Jane Doe claims her test results were not kept confidential. She said her file was left open near where "a group of employees" were chatting.

As she left the doctor's office, she said she was stopped by one of the employees who tried to console her.

      Feel no sympathy for her at all. She will be aight but the potential partners you would or did sleep with feel better. Kick rocks IMO

    • aint nobody got time for that

      In other words the bish already KNEW she had it n was mad that it was now confirmed on paper where it could possibly lead back to her. Which means she is more than likely sleeping with ppl n not informing them of her status (a crime in ny). N if she truly just didn't want to know she is even more pathetic. But something tells me she knew. Damn shame. Thats y im SCARED to have sex wit someone new (even tho thats doesn't guarantee anything) but im keeping my chances of contracting something slim as possible

      no excuse for this :no: She was scared to get a test that could prolong her life and save others and since the dr broke protocol and did it anyway, she'll win this lawsuit although it's frivolous and not right. He acted with her best interest in mind even if it was beyond the scope of his duties and without her permission. I hope she loses and I hope this case sets a standard for drs to be able to act when a patient is in denial..

    • aint nobody got time for that

      We have a lot of old outdated laws that only become a problem AFTER something happens (i.e. stand your ground) smh n hiv isnt an automatic death sentence like it was before. Ppl think of it as being associated wit sex. I think that's where the stigma comes from but it doesn't even attack the sex organs. I mean its as common as cancer. Neither have A cure....that we know of. So y the stigma? Ignorance is bliss. Until your ignorance starts to interfere with other peoples bliss.

    • ReadingIsFundamental

      @aint...

      So, where does it "come" from exactly? yes, you can get HIV from other activities other than sex but, the number one transmittal source is sex. No, it is not a death sentence UNLESS you are ignorant and do not get treatment... in which case, like cancer, it is a death sentence.

      Cancer does not come from out of the air. Cancer is an abundance of carcinogens that are not filtered out from the body and there are many causes including how your body reacts to filtering out what you put in it.

      Anyway, I think there should be a scare or stigma, especially for our youth, about contracting HIV. It's a life long battle illness to deal with. You don't take a tylenol and get over it. The only thing wrong with fear is when ignorance follows behind it.

    • aint nobody got time for that

      @rif i see where ur coming from but i slightly disagree. The stigma associated with hiv is more hurtful than helpful bcuz young ppl know about it n STILL participate in risky activities. What the stigma does is make those who contract it ashamed to get tested/treated or share their status before sex. I think the inadequate funding of sex ed in public schools as well as adults (some not all) in the home, school, church, etc not wanting to discuss sex with the children. I think its natural to have certain feelings at a certain age but what happens when your body is growing up but your mind isnt? U have sex EVERYWHERE n no guidance n voila recipe for disaster. The stigma aint scaring ppl into stopping the risky behavior. Its stopping the treatment

      @ aint.

      I hear ya. It takes a village and I blame children with risky behavior to have more issues than stigma surrounding HIV. .. bad parenting or bad peer pressure or un-treated trauma or simple bad *ss kids making bad choices. This is however, a grown woman with a disease that is transmitted primarily sexually and that can lead to death if gone un-treated. She isn't refusing treatment because it is not available. She is making a choice. The facts around the disease are not a stigma in my opinion.. they are facts. You can't lead a healthy or normal life with HIV. You can't be in a normal and healthy sexual relationship with someone anymore because you have to take some pretty uncomfortable precautions. The life you live with HIV can be long but, it's not comfortable. My bro-inlaw has HIV and he has to deal with some new ailment d*mn near every six months it seems. He has to stick with the dummy that gave him the disease because who else is he going to be in a relationship with? (i don't agree with him on this but, i'm not in his shoes) His body fights with his medications to keep some sort of immune system. It's kind of like you have to have some sort of fear of God to believe in and respect him. You have to have some sort of fear of the devil to believe in him and respect his evil in order to keep from making bad choices. Well, there should be a fear of HIV.. and Cancer... and h*ll even the flu these days.

      The lack of treatment is regulated by the government but, I don't go in to conspiracy theories too deeply. However, I do know that treatment is out there. I think the lesson should be to lower your risk of contracting the disease not, wait until you get it and pray that treatment is available.

      (i like talking to people like you.. i only go back and forth with people who are actually talking with sense; even if i disagree)

There is no "normal" life with any illness that u have to take a cocktail off pills to treat (not cure) fir the rest of ur life. I definitely think its a big problem ppl took more serious when it was new. But sadly theres people who dont even understand this disease and its affects. N these people are sexually active. I still feel the stigma is sort of a catch 22 tho. Bcuz i feel like it stops a loooot of people from leading a healthy lifestyle. I guess all we can do is try our best to protect ourselves

      She is actually lucky to get a doctor like House that was diligent in getting to the bottom of her health problems. He ran every test on her bloodwork because she was ill not because he was invasive I have pernicious anemia which for me it's an autoimmune disease (my body's antibodies destroyed my digestive intrinsic factor protein) for some it's caused by cosmetic gastric bypass. My red blood cell count is low requiring transfusion and bi-weekly B12 injections. If her white blood cell count was low, her body was under attack. White blood cells are the virus fighters- if they are fighting a virus they multiply. If they are low, they are "being" attacked by a killer virus like HIV. It took my Emory educated Indian Gastroenterologist, Asian Neurologist and African Cardiologist 3 years to diagnose me because they didn't run a simple blood tests and it damn near killed me but forever maimed me. My court date is tomorrow, and yes I'm suing for malpractice not because my feeling were hurt, but because I have a case.

      My neighbor had gastric bypass surgery a few weeks ago and I swear they made her take a few tests and the H.I.V. test was definitely one of them! So somebody is lying or not telling the whole story! Even if you get plastic surgery, they have to do one of those test! Girl bye! #fail :tea:

      That is correct before the surgery is done ( a few weeks before) they take all types of blood test on you to make sure all your levels are good beforehand.

      :thinking: I wonder if he would have told her she had stage 2 breast cancer would she have felt the same way? She should be thanking him. He probably saved her life. With our bootleg legal system she will probably win.....

      Isn"t that the purpose of informing you...so you can protect others from you...I don't get it...lol...maybe if I read the post I might get a better understanding instead of just reading the headline...but :no: (smh, anyway)

    • Miany

      Good Morning Atypical and Afiya! I agree, I think she knew. It's sad that she may win this case (I think it's a legal requirement for the doc to get signed consent before testing for HIV) I know my Dr. makes me sign a consent form before I get tested.

      Good morning Sandra!

      Good Morning Roses!

      I heard about this some time ago. She knew she had it she was just embarrassed about it and when the opportunity came for her to act a fool she grabbed it. She should really be concerned about other things than trying to get money out of this man. It wasn’t like it was malpractice. :rolleyes:

      ______________

      That's why I think she denied the test when they asked her before the surgery. She knew. She didn't want confirmation.

    • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

      @ Bootcampgirl: I don't think her chart was left open for everyone to see. If you work at a doctor's office, clinic, etc., you are knowledgeable about the patients. The doctor is not the only one who knows about a patient's HIV results in the office.

    • Bootcampgirl

      @Sandra, I get that, but I still think she has a case for HIPPA violation, I deal with inmates and I do not know their status at all. If one of these nurses happen to leave a chart open from a person we both deal with, that nurse would def. be in trouble...

    • Twilight

      This chic is crazy and dont have a CASE! I am willing to bet that she knew her status and was in denial then and still in denial now. When i counsel patients prior to getting testing and after they are fully aware and understanding of the whats and the why's of the test results.

      the white count was a red flag which i am sure her pre-op labs aswell as other doctors probably was aware of it. second, who goes to the lab to have blood drawn without a lab slip? last i saw each lab slip from Quest-Lab corp has its own required signautre before it is drawn. The next thing she is going to say is that the lab was in cohoots with the doctor. Also as a lab technician each tube of blood has a special top for test indicated to draw.
      The only thing i can say for the Doctor is that he better have a consent on file to show that this patient consented. paper chart or electronic.

    • Twilight

      If an office like the mentioned Doctor is going to use a outside lab for testing and if there wasnt a signature on the lab slip the outside lab is not going to run the test without a signature and will toss the specimen out.

    • DoNotDeleteMe

      I am scratching my head wondering why a doctor would operate on her without full knowledge of her illnesses. I mean, they test you the day of to see if you have nicotine in your body. If you do, they will send you back home and you will have to be smoke-free for 6 months. This young lady who was in the same class as me had her surgery post-poned three times because she did not give up the cigs. She kept blaming the doctors but I am like, "You can't let that go for six months so you can have the surgery?" :shrug:

      This turd in the story is just a doofus. I had no problems when I was asked to take the necessary tests. The only thing that post-poned my surgery was my lack of Vitamin D and I had to lose 23 pounds. I lost 17 and the doctor did go ahead with the surger). My thing is, what if they were not able to do the surgery laproscopally (sp?) and had to cut this pig open? That would have put even more people at greater risk. This story make me very angry! :mad:

    • Fated4Greatness

      This seems like she knew she had that sh!t or she knew it was a good chance she had itand just wanted to remain in denial for the longest about it.

    • Twilight

      HIV testing is not part of the pre-op labs work up. if a Doctor gets stuck during the surgical procedure with a instrument (which sometimes happends) the Doctor has to have the patient tested for HIV which she has to consent and can refuse. I treat everyone i draw blood on whether they are positive or negative as positive. less mistakes happens with getting to comfortable not wearing gloves which sometimes techs do.
