Partially paralyzed by a rare, hereditary disease, Judith Desautell had no one to help her when she fell, oftentimes when transferring from her wheelchair to her bed. So she’d call 911, figuring it would be less costly in the long run than if she signed up with Medicaid to absorb her exorbitant medical bills.The Town of Manchester disagreed, and when she punched in 911 once too often – 16 times in a two-month span – its Department of Family Services referred her case to the probate court in November 1998.
