"Utterly disgusted"

Never ever again.

Thankfully the doctor who discharged me saw I was in completely the wrong place but even so, it was an eye opening experience.

Complete lack of compassion by any member of staff, filthy bathroom which stank of stale urine, no English mental health staff in the Psyche ward I was wrongly placed in for one night.

Distressing experience.
