"psychiatrict intensive care unit left me in attempted suicide"

About: Humber NHS Foundation Trust / Psychiatric intensive care

(as the patient),

On two occassions at Maranda House I placed a ligature around my neck and staff failed to remove the ligatues and left me to pass out or go unconscious while watching laughing and mocking me as I lay on the toilet floor finding it difficult to breathe.

I was left totally unobserved at one point as I had blocked the view to the seclusion room.

The picu was severely understaffed and made it a dangerous environment with patients needs going unmet daily.
