UCLA CEO: What's Up With Lindsay, Doc?

9/26/2010 2:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's stint at UCLA Medical Center was hardly a success -- but David Feinberg, the Associate Vice Chancellor and CEO of the UCLA Hospital System, told our photog last night that everyone at UCLA "gets the highest level of care ... that is second to none."

Yeah, the proof of how good is that you let Lindsay so and see how good the treatment was. Da ya think you let her off too soon?

Rehab isn't a certainty for cure.Lindsay really needs to see the error of her ways before she can progress.It looks,to me,that Lindsay was let out too soon from the UCLA program.

They were either dazzled by B-list celebrity or figured out right away that her real underlying issue is a personality disorder and didn't want to deal with it. Either way, this ranks as a definite FAIL for UCLA. Doubt anyone who truly cares about Lindsay (if they exist) feels she got 'the highest level of care...second to none,' seeing as she pretty much immediately failed drug testing after they were done 'caring for' her addiction problem.

He cares more about his job than his patients, that is why he is a horrible doctor.

The text in italics IS based on "Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited", fourth, revised, printing (2003)

An all-pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behaviour), need for admiration or adulation and lack of empathy, usually beginning by early adulthood and present in various contexts. Five (or more) of the following criteria must be met:

Feels grandiose and self-important (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents to the point of lying, demands to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)

Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequalled brilliance (the cerebral narcissist), bodily beauty or sexual performance (the somatic narcissist), or ideal, everlasting, all-conquering love or passion

Firmly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions)

Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation - or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious (narcissistic supply)

Feels entitled. Expects unreasonable or special and favorable priority treatment. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her expectations

Is "interpersonally exploitative", i.e., uses others to achieve his or her own ends

Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with or acknowledge the feelings and needs of others

Constantly envious of others or believes that they feel the same about him or her

Arrogant, haughty behaviours or attitudes coupled with rage when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted

Some of the language in the criteria above is based on or summarized from:

American Psychiatric Association. (2000). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders, fourth edition, Text Revision (DSM IV-TR). Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Association.

Lucky, you are right.

Wow....UCLA Dr's blew this one. Their diagnosis determined that wasn't bipolar NOR addicted to drugs. They knew she was a coke user, did they buy her "only on weekends" story vs. "only on days that end with y"?? i'm not sure how docs that are looking someone in the eyes with addiction to sleeping pills, amphetemines, and crazy pills, did they not think she had a cocaine addiction!? Did they not delve into her real issues because they had a biase against her and wanted her out of their program?

Well even the highest level of care won't help much if you don't stay in rehab long enough, hopefully Lindsay will learn from her mistake and commit herself more to rehab.

Yeah, his hospital is so good they let a full blown drug addict out early! Even recommending it to the judge. And now rehab for a 5th time in five years? ABSURD. She clearly doesn't want to be sober. She goes right back to the same user friends and a mother who is a master enabler.
