Quail Run

Name of Hospital: Quail Run

City, State/Province, Country: Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Number of Stars: 4

Comment: My Stay lasted just under a week which is a little fast for Quail Run. Groups are mandatory, and rooms are locked during the day on weekdays. You have to have permission from your doctor to be in your room during the day, and have to ask permission to use the bathroom. There was a well stocked rec room (though they were tragically short on glue). The wards are small, but that does mean there is more one on one contact with the staff.

The food was cafeteria style with many options for many preferences and needs. We were brought out side to a court years that contained both a basket ball court and a fountain you were aloud to play in. The staff was generally curious, though there was a single nurse who made two homophobic jokes. I received a sincere apology when I brought up the fact that this was not okay, and no more jokes were told.

Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): Inpateint

Any other identities/marginalizations (i.e. race/gender/sexuality) that could have influenced your stay?: Transgender and openly queer
