my son was sent to picu newsum centre. I feel that becklin wing didnt take time to properly diagnose him. they sent him to psychiatric intensive care unit at newsum centre which consisted of a bed, toliet, wash basin and grey walls. How can any body get better locked up like they're in a prison cell?
the first day i went to see him i cried buckets of tears. i couldnt believe a sick person could be locked up like that. it felt to me like he was locked up like an animal in a zoo.
in my opinion, the nurses and doctors treated him badly. my son went to picu with a nervous breakdown and within 3days they had given him so much drugs it seemed to me that he was struggling to string two words together. i found the staff nurses very rude.
my son suffered many injuries while he was in picu. i got the police involved. i think picu should be abolished and new staff and doctors appointed.
