Inhumane Treatment

I have had the opportunity to visit patients in St. Joe's BSU and Packer and they don't even compare. Packer treats their patients with respect and genuinely cares for them; St. Joe's--- there are no words. This place needs to be shut down and every worker and doctor there should be committed. They need to experience for one day what they put fellow human beings through. Shame on you, St. Joe's BSU.

I am really disappointed at some behavior and comments expressed by a couple of the nursing staff at the BSU. Its quite obvious that this is just a job for them, and not one that they have chosen out of compassion for people experiencing some of the darkest moments of their life.
