'Babywatch,' day one: Lisa McPherson raves out by Scientology's holiest swimming pool - 2015-11-19
After spending several hours at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Florida, Lisa McPherson arrived at the Fort Harrison Hotel late on a Saturday night, and already some questionable decisions were being made about her care.
At the hospital, following Lisa's bizarre behavior of taking her clothes off and walking down the middle of the road after a minor car accident, psychiatric nurse Joe Price had questioned Lisa about her state of mind. He found that although she spoke with an odd cadence, her answers were lucid, and she didn't appear to be a danger to herself or others. He decided that she didn't meet the criteria for being "Baker Acted" and held, with or without her consent, for a full psychiatric evaluation.
