"Hospital Review"

About: Wonford House

If you ever wonderd what hell looks like then be admitted here!

I have never seen a place where the patients are the well ones and the staff are sick.

the staff are emotionless and control freaks,

I saw so many good people come into this plaxe full of life and emotions and within a few days were turned into zombies with medication.

patients are emotionally abused talked down to not listened to and the excuse of "illness" is used as a way to be able to treat them like this.

all people need was is a heart someone to listen and someone to say its ok to cry.

it seems they have medication for everything if you laugh, cry, sing, get angry or have an opinion they will have a medication for it all.
