The child psychiatric unit in the emergency department at CCMC does not have enough rooms for all of the children in need - often children are laying in stretchers in the hallway because there are no rooms... more for them. Children are given nothing to do except some crayons and paper. They may sit like this for days getting restrained and sedated and bored out of their minds staring at the wall waiting for an inpatient bed to open up in an inpatient hospital - this certainly does nothing to help a child with mental health issues and can be detrimental. The social workers are very cold and rude generally and treat you like another number and when you call to talk to them about your child they act annoyed as if you are bothering them. This is a sad state for a children’s hospital - you would expect better. The nursing staff is generally pretty nice.
I spent almost $1,200 worth of appointments at that CT Children's with no improvement for his health. Within three appointments at Boston Children' Hospital he was diagnosed and scheduled for treatments.... more 100% improvement in his health BTW. CT Children's schedule as far out as four months for immediate health issues. Boston children's fits you in. It's worth the drive north, use the money of a co-pay or two on the gas and save your child's health and way more if your insurance will let you go to Boston Children's Hospital, literally considered to have the best pediatricians in the world.
