Theoretically it could be defamation but that is not likely or is likely to meet with defenses. I do not see other causes of action working.

While we hate to suffer the rudeness of those we put our trust in, or anyone, and while we would like to think they would be professional, caring and kind. The best idea might be to complain to the hospital adminstration and file a complaint with the California Medical Board.
