About: Maroondah Hospital / Mental Health Adult Inpatient Units (IPU1 and IPU2)

(as the patient),

Treated badly by some of the nurses and sworn at. I felt judged and misunderstood and I also didn't feel like I was listened to. In my opinion the doctors don’t consult you about making any decisions in your own recovery options.
