"Ruskin Unit"

I am completely disappointed with the care I received in this hospital. The ward overall was dirty, throughout my stay I had no pillow to sleep on. The food that I was given appeared greasy and unhealthy, and this caused me indigestion. I could not talk to the staff as much as I needed, there was no therapeutic patient-staff contact whatsoever. To be fair it is a safe place to stay for someone that is suicidal but nothing more than that.
