Petition Closed

My son went to the Emergency room at local hospital and said he was suicidal on August 30, 2011. RANDY WANTED HELP.
He was bipolar and was not on his meds.( Many people who are bipolar stop taking their meds ). Im sure he was frustrated He no doubt felt the medical profession let him down.. For whatever their reason for not admitting him, they released him. A few hours later he intentionally ran out on an interstate in front of an oncoming semi. My son is dead. He left his 10yr old daughter behind along with other family members. If they had admitted him right then (and he couldnt sign himself out ), got him on his meds and stabilized him, which takes at least 3 weeks, my son would be alive today.  A month or so later, the Medical Examiner told me Randy had nothing in his system that would influence his actions that evening.Randy was my first born child and very much wanted. Not only did this ER neglect my son, they have devastated me and our family for the rest of our lives. This MUST be stopped. I am sure Randy isnt the only one hospital ER's have turned suicidal people away. Once someone comes in to an ER and say they are suicidal, there must be a mandatory 3 week hold on them to get them stabilized.. PLEASE help other Mothers and family members from losing  their child or loved one. It can be done with your help. RANDY DIDNT WIN IN THIS LIFE, HELP HIM WIN NOW !!.  PLEASE SIGN RANDY'S PETITION. Thank you !

Stop hospital ERs from releasing suicidal people ~
.My son's name is Randall Bruce Fisher, we called him "Randy". I loved him with all my heart. Randy was an Eagle Scout and had a certificate in Land Surveying. He was smart. He was funny. He was bi polar. He was MY SON.
My son went to the Emergency room at local hospital and said he was suicidal. There must be a law that says if a person goes to an ER and says if they say they are suicidal, the hospital MUST keep them or transfer them to a hospital that can care for the patient, get them stabilized on their meds for 3 weeks, even if the person says later they are NOT suicidal. Thats what bi polar people do. RANDY WANTED HELP AND ASKED FOR IT ! THIS MUST BE STOPPED AND WE ARE BEGGING FOR A CHANGE IN THE LAW.
He was bipolar and was not on his meds.( Many people who are bipolar stop taking their meds ). Im sure he was frustrated. For whatever their reason for not admitting him, they released him. Turning him away was only going to lead to his death. A few hours later he intentionally ran out on an interstate in front of an oncoming semi. My son is dead. Randy was only 41 yrs old. He left his 10yr old daughter behind along with other family members. If they had admitted him right then (and he couldnt sign himself out ), got him on his meds and stabilized him, which takes at least 3 weeks. my son would be alive today.
