Comment: Horrifying and traumatizing place. It’s difficult to name the number of illegal and unethical things which occurred in this hospital. My mental health leaving the hospital was far worse than when I arrived (after a suicide attempt!). They lied to me to get me to sign papers for a “voluntary” stay while I was still delirious in the ED. While still medically unstable, they took me upstairs and put me in a chair in the hallway where I waited for more than 1.5 hours before someone admitted me. They then took me into a closed bathroom and strip-searched me. I could barely stand.

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