I work at a hospital with 7 psych units consisting of 130 beds. My unit consists of intermediate care and psych intensive care patients. We seem to get the same patients over and over. We will hold them for 3-4 months to send them to the state hospital where they will stay a few days before being released. Then within days many are readmitted and then the cycle repeats. Even ones that aren't committed, many come right back in. Many of these patients will freely admit that they lied about being suicidal to get admitted. I feel like I,as a nurse, do nothing but house homeless people and people hiding from the law. I don't understand how the doctors get away with rarely "fixing" anyone and can only imagine how much it costs the state paying these psychiatrists and this hospital for what is essentially a bed and breakfast. I feel like everything here is shady and corrupt.
