A state hospital???
is that really the answer to persons being tomented by a mystery illness that physicans are unprepared to treat!
a hospital setting in the community where the mentally ill can be treated longer than 2 weeks would be much better answer.
physicans who are familiar with the illness and have the compassion and experience to treat the ill would be such a great solution.
a community center where everyone is admitted. not just those
who have a certain insurance and then throw them to the steets at exactly 2 weeks of care because that is all the ins co covers
i have been in the system for 8 years as a caregiver of someone
who would be classified as severely mentally ill. someone who can not care for themselves and who may very well be a danger to me at times.
i still believe the physicans in the local hospital should have the authority to keep them until the truely believe they are on the proper dose of medications and stable, or better yet....safely taper them off the meds and find out what the real issues are causing the illness.
i know for a fact that the antipsycotics meds such as ZYPREXA can make a normal human psychotic after years of use.
if you do not believe me ....try the meds daily for years....maybe you will belong in the state hospital too.
free housing and insurance for those released from prison but no care for the mentally ill until they commit a crime.
hello all physicans who have studied psychiatry....DO YOUR PART. DO SOME PRO-BONO.
TOO MANY QUACKS IN THE MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM TO OPEN ANOTHER STATE HOSPITAL.
HOW MANY UNCLAIMED URNS AT THE OREGON STATE HOSPITAL IN SALEM.......5000 OR SOMETHING?????
