Family Captures Moment They Help Daughter ‘Escape’ Mayo Clinic

Alyssa Gilderhus

(Daily Mail) – A teenager has told how she was forced to escape from the Mayo Clinic after doctors ‘refused’ to discharge or transfer her and tried to take guardianship of her against her will following a brain surgery last year.

Alyssa Gilderhus, now 19, was a high school senior and 18-years-old when she was admitted to the world renowned hospital’s Minnesota facility on Christmas Day, 2016.

She had suffered a brain aneurysm and required emergency surgery to save her life.

After neurosurgeons performed the procedure, Alyssa was transferred to the hospital’s rehabilitation unit where she spent three weeks.

Over the course of those three weeks, her parents butted heads with doctors who she says were ‘cruel’ to her and did not listen to her needs. CONTINUE
