Default Horrible Hospital Staff!

I was hospitalized in April, I stayed there for a little over a month, it was easily the worst experiences I've ever had in a hospital

But there was a specific time where one of the staff was extremely rude and unsympathetic towards me. For no apparent reason either..

I was hearing voices so I started to pound my head on the wall and this staff member walked into my room and said, "Esmme, cut that **** out, I can hear you all the way down the hall".

I'm diagnosed with schizophrenia, so when I heard that, the voices said, "He's going to kill you". I told the other staff members what he said to me and no one believed me. They said, "That doesn't sound like him."

I confronted him about it and he said, "If I wanted to kill you, you'd be dead already..." But all that did was fuel my "delusions" more... I avoided him like the plague and he purposely went out of his way to make me scared and miserable.

It was absolutely terrible. I tried reporting him, but none of the other staff believed me. I told everyone I could about him, and not even ONE staff person took me seriously.

I wish I had complained about it sooner, but none of the other staff believed me. I want to complain to someone else about it, someone who will take me seriously and punish this staff for being such an asshole to vulnerable people...

Unhappy Re: Horrible Hospital Staff!

I'm sorry you had this distressing experience. One of the things that helps keep me out of the hospital is the collection of memories I have of staff I encountered when I was "inside".

OMG That must have been terrifying! I would go to the administrator of the hospital and if that doesn't work I think you can lodge a complaint with Dept. of Mental Health.

I'm sorry this happened to you.

he sounds a right jerk!

did you try reporting him to the management?

he shouldn't be working in a hospital if he's going to say and do things like that

thankfully, none of my experiences have been that bad

think the worst I've had was being on the floor on ward (because of pain), and screaming in agony because I couldn't move- even if I wanted to, and when the staff member came in to (I thought help me up), she goes.

get the **** up, come on, I've other patients to deal with

i'm really sorry that happened to you

i can relate too, and some of the memories i have from psych wards make me feel horrible and feel worthless. a time when i was self harming and hit a wall a nurse made a comment to another patient that i was just doing it for attention. other stuff happened too but it is really triggering

What he said was indeed rude and unsympathetic but nothing that needs to be reported. Like you said, everything was under your delusion and it was the voices that fueled the delusion.

Thanks everyone for your responses....

I don't think I will report it, just because the staff seemed to not take me seriously.
I read reviews on this hospital while I was in the ER. All the reviews were bad, there was about a 2 star rating out of 5. So I think it won't make a difference if I report it.

I just know not to go to that hospital anymore.
I wish there was more I could do, I know that if that staff member is going to act like that to me, he's probably going to do it to other patients there too.
