This hospital does not deserve 1 star. I stayed in the Behavioral Health Unit for 8 days. In those 8 days, I got almost no care. I wish I didn't have to write this review, but I want people to know what... more they're getting into. This is an acute care facility. You will be deemed stable once you take your pills and act "normal." There is no therapy. There is no professional you can really talk to. The staff under the RNs are usually rude. A lot of them talk about patients behind their backs, but in front of other patients. They need to take it to the break room. You're lucky if you can get the nurse in charge of you to talk to you for more than 5 minutes. The psychiatrists go off a script: How are you today? Do you have any questions? I tried to have a conversation with one of the psychiatrists, but all he tried to do was to push me to start some sort of medication (without knowing anything of my medical history). Once I asked to be transferred, he told me we were done here and walked off. After that he tried to gaslight me every time he saw me. Many other patients confided in me that they did not like the way he interacted with them. I had almost all my medication nurses argue with me when I declined the medication. It is my right to decline medication, especially when a medication was hastily chosen. After the 3 day hold, I was put on a 14 day hold, and was never informed. Apart from not being informed that I was on a 14 day hold, it took them 5 days to let see a judge. I have a right to see a judge in 4 days or less. All the Behavioral Health Unit does is glorified babysitting. They made feel incompetent and worthless. The day after I got discharged, I contemplated killing myself with the prescription they gave me for the daft medication they tried to make me take. Luckily, I have one person who kept me from making that choice. I told them I wasn't okay, but it fell on deaf ears. If you need real psychiatric care do not go here or let a loved one go here. This is not the place.
