In an attempt to get a timely referral to a new specialist outside the circle of care within the Hamilton Health Sciences group of hospitals, she requested an appointment with the defendant, who was Vice-President Medical at the Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation (“HHSC”). At that appointment, and to the plaintiff’s surprise, the defendant “formed” her and she was taken involuntarily to an emergency psychiatric unit for a psychiatric assessment.
