Royal Alexandra Hospital

Name of Hospital: Royal Alexandra Hospital

City, State/Province, Country: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Number of Stars: 3

Comment: The unit is unit 35, it’s an adolescent, locked, ‘acute’ psychiatric care unit. I put acute in quotations because they say the average length of stay is 3 weeks, and through my 3 admissions, the lengths ranged from 2.5 weeks to 2 months. Although I hated it, this hospital saved my life numerous times. How your stay goes really depends on who your doctor is, there’s 4 or 5 psychiatrists. Some are better than others!

Staff are hit or miss, some are absolutely amazing, caring, understanding and comforting. While others are cold, harsh, and kinda bitter.

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

Year(s) : 2015- 2016, it was the same all times.
