Was sent there by an idiot cop that said I was ""distraught"" because of crying after having an argument with my bf. I have exper. county jail before; Green Oaks is worse, they treat their pts. like dogs. They humiliate, manhandle pts. & yell out medication, behavioral, & personal information across the room in front of other patients as if they can’t hear them. Cussing/griping all day long. I felt no better than a dirty cow in a pasture being herded. Don't even THINK about getting out of your chair, you’ll be yelled at! One cried for 12 hrs, ignored and made to sit on a hard bench. Repeatedly told “stop crying!” by a tech, James at a desk 10 ft away. She was refused a chair/blanket because of the crying. Tranquilizers were forced as she screamed. They came out of the room and smugly announced to all, ""Well she got her shots; that’s what she wanted!"" She wasn't even dangerous, just sobbed cause she didn’t have a ph number! One incontinent patient was left soaked for 40 min after being noticed. They don’t hesitate to figure out your insurance info. My bf and mom called from 2am-11am to get me out, until a social worker came and got me out. 3 min to plead your case then your thrown out to the general population for another day. Unbearably cold esp. when forced to stay seated at all times. No mental stimulation whatsoever. Men are supposed to stay on their side but it's like the techs just didn't care anymore. Man came over to my chair w an evil look in his eye. I tried to notify a tech who glanced at me and walked off. I feared for my safety/life at some points. I felt like an annoyance - intimidated to ask for anything. Most painful 10 hrs of my life; jail is better. If your loved one has an emergency for the love of God DO NOT CALL THE POLICE, they will go to this Hell hole. One pt. spilled her cereal, tech came over and threw 2 bathtowels down on the milk & cereal, wiped w his foot & just left it on the floor for hrs! PLEASE avoid this place at ALL costs.
Cons: A ridiculously incompetent staff, money hunger, ignorance
