In January 1978 I was involved in an automobile accident and taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. When I regained consciousness, I told the attendants that I was a Christian Scientist and did not want any medical treatment. I asked one of the nurses to call a Christian Science practitioner for me and request her to come to the hospital immediately.

One of the doctors insisted on examining me. Although I didn't allow him to do so, he mentioned that my shoulder was either broken or dislocated and needed to be set right away. I thanked him for his concern but told him that I wanted to rely solely on Christian Science treatment for healing. When the practitioner arrived, I left the hospital with her.
