"law unto themselves"

About: Highbury Hospital

highbury has no.idea about modern mental health practice. It is like stepping back in time ..no involvement with families; psychiatrists treated like god's, regardless of whether they know what they are talking about or not. Patients don't figure in their assessments & families are treated with defensiveness & disrespect unless the staff decide that they like you. Make a complaint and you will be treated even more poorly. Somebody needs to take a closer look at what is happening at this hospital. The problems seem impenetrable.
