Under no circumstances allow anyone to be kept here.egotistical insane specialists in charge -forcing highly damaging drugs on patients-using patients as guinea pigs.making them worse deliberately if you... more dare to challenge them.just like the old insanity asylums -back to the dark ages. And thats before you get to the lack od care and effective help or treatments.some staff have heart in tight place but are unable to help or make better surroundings due to autocrisy and red tape set by those in control.no actual assistance available to help recovery or rehab.no entertainment or outings.no brain stimulation -simply horrendous brain damaging drugs -forced on patients openly or overtly -when you try to intervene-which cause far worse symptoms and behaviour than the beleaguerd patients went in with. This place is a death sentence for all who enter.no chance of recovery or improvement.
Singularly, the worst experience for me and members of my family. Patients are not supported, virtually no access to clinical psychologists, and are afforded cursory reviews. The criminalisation of people... more who have suffered breakdowns is awful, add to this the inhumane treatment afforded by the so called 'nurses' not all but the nonchalance of the managers beggars belief!! THis secured mental health unit makes One flew over the Cuckoos Nest a veritable luxury. Wake up, shower, take your mess, eat, mess, eat mess, sleep, smoke. VIrually no therapy offered and superficial observations. In my period on 2 wards, patients were approached and treated with passive aggression, contempt and regarded as idiots. I would strongly urge a public inquiry into the number of attempted and actual suicides that have taken place, The incidents of self harm and appalling infection control measures. In short it's virtually a concentration camp run by despotic managers and staff operate like autocrats. As I said the WORST experience of my life which haunts me still. the single star relates to a certain few members of staff who genuinely cared, but the 'Culture of the Workplace' more likely than not would sap their positive attributes to be replaced with the uncaring, can't be bothered attitude.
