A drunk complains about her ER discharge instructions

She was going to sue over hurt feelings:

An intoxicated patient filed a complaint with the city after a Denver Health Medical Center doctor issued discharge instructions telling her to not “get drunk and fall, causing harm to your head or body.”

Patient Karin Howe, of Littleton, a certified nurse aide, accused Dr. Yadavinder Sooch of issuing “outrageous discharge instructions” and said the hospital provided “substandard treatment,” according to an intent-to-sue complaint obtained by CBS 4 News investigator Brian Maass. It was dated Jan. 30.
