"Accident and emergency department at Nepean Hospital"

About: Nepean Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I was brought in by police due to false reports from neighbors. They had been causing me grief and I already had a support letter from the police to be moved. Anyway Nepean Hospital seem to have a rule about anyone brought in by police is tied to the bed, unbeknown to me as I had never been thru this before. I believe this practice happens because there is no staff designated to that area, so hence I think of it as a form of baby sitting which I think is against the law? the next thing, what I know now, big security men posing like police standing over me while im supposed to be calmed and the people that are supposed to be treating me actually made me feel like I was a pig, like I had done something wrong with 4 security men standing over me while I was supposedly being assessed.

The next thing I know im trying to walk away from them, im chased and tied to a bed forcefully by 4 big men and doctors and nurses all participating while im just terrified. It was like being in a horror movie. All this because they have no staff to look after me the way the law says and I wonder why people dont get better. Well I didnt have a major mental illness but am still treated like I do and that left me with PTSD which have been proven. I've had appoligies from the supposed service, so what, I didnt deserve or need this. I wonder how many others are out there?
