A gay man was arrested at a hospital in Missouri this week when he refused to leave the bedside of his partner, and now a restraining order is preventing him from any type of visitation.

Missouri man arrested at hospital for refusing to leave gay partner

One of the reasons gay people should be allowed to marry or given some sort of legal rights so this doesn't happen.  They had each others power of attorney but a family member didn't like him being there.

It wasn't the mans partner that had a problem with it.  It was a family member.

"disruptive to providing the necessary patient care".

If that's the case, then fine, get him out.

That was one of the main considerations I had when I voted to legalize gay marriage in my state this year.

The only thing disruptive he did was refuse to leave when a family member tried to run him off.  The family member should of been the one that left and came back later if they couldn't stand seeing the patients partner there.

I think the hospital was just put in an awkward situation.

Yeah, but:
"He said the nurse refused to confirm that the couple shared power of attorney and made medical decision for each other.
“She didn’t even bother to look it up, to check in to it,” the Lee’s Summit resident recalled."

Family member should have left, imo. Especially if the partner is the one who's able to make medical decisions.

True. It sounds like the family member may be intolerant.

Disgusting... Absolutely shocking.


If the guy in hospital signed power of attorney to his partner then it's his choice who visits him not his families. This is BS.


I also never understood how a family can be like that. Even if you are against homosexuality, you still love that person if they are family and should just accept their choice of partner and welcome them to the fmaily. What the hell do they expect to happen from this?!


Damn if I was in this situation and recovered fully my family would know damn fine how angry I was about it. All they are going to do is hurt everyone and it will come back on them. Stupid.


I don't care if people don't want to accept homosexuality, it's their choice and they are free to do so, but not allowing Gay people to have the same rights is wrong. That's taking their freedom of choice.

Thank goodness same-sex marriage is legal in Maine.  That attitude is not only foolish, but harmful to the health of the partner who is ill.  Even if he is in a coma, he knows on some level what is going on in the room.

Then why do doctors encourage people to talk to coma patients?  Why do they leave the TV on in coma wards?
