Why is this funny? It's true, no matter if the patient comes in a "psych patient" or not. Every patient deals with the psychiatric issues of becoming hospitalized, whether it's anxiety from being hospitalized and not able to be with their family, go to work, take care of family members, depression of their disease process, confusion of hospital procedures, their privacy and modesty ultimately in the hands of others. And this is just for adults. Imagine the fear that children face while hospitalized?
It's not funny at all, it's the truth.
