Reviews

FSU, Civil Hospital, CTU food is terrible. Grievance process will not improve food. Food is made and put into warming machines that often malfunction or are not started by staff. Warming machines have been in service beyond their service life. Meals may be served 1-2 hours late, cold and undercooked Some medications may cause nausea in the interim without food. Dietician had difficulty making diet cjanges and said the software was to blame. Menus are printed on meal tickets abd Kitchen help create trays based on the ticket. If the ticket is wrong the unit staff are supposed to refer the matter to a supervisor who can call a nurse to confirm the diet. Some nurses eon't be bothered on this matter and even if they order a correction it arrives very late and cold. Nurses are generally there to pass meds, do sick call and patch up the wounded. Nurses also recommend Emergency Treatment (tranquilizers). Treatment team does not always consider resident input and may jump to conclusions based on erroneous psychiatric and legal  history. Treatment team has very limited knowledge of resident's military service and rely on resident input for most military and employment history. An NGI resident who is doing well and no longer meets criteria for Committment will not be put on discharge status until a suitable placement accepts him/her. These residents will be put on the legally nebulous status of discharge ready. From discharge ready to discharge may take 6 months to over a year despite actually not meeting criteria for Committment. The treatment team will justify your stay even if there isn't a bona fide justification. In the interim the resident may be taken off discharge ready status for various rule violations. Once the NGI resident has been accepted by a placement they are put on discharge status but not discharged until the client signs a conditional release order with their judge. The resident is on discharge status but may wait over a month even two for actual discharge even though they met the criteria for discharge as much as a year ago. NGI Clients cannot be discharged without agreeing to a CRO (conditional release order) that usually violates some constitutional protected rights like 4th amendment protections on consent to release PHI  (Protected Health Information) (HIPPA) and consent for treatment or care. Because signature is not based on volition the constitutionality of these documents is nebulous. FSH and the courts are undermining resident civil rights through a series of transactions that remove a person's right to participate in their care instead of having hearings (due process) to order treatment and disclosure. While at the hospital the doctor actually has to seek an order if a resident refuses medication and she believes they need medication for safety reasons. After discharge the CRO forces medication without any consent other than a CRO signature and if a patient refuses the court may violate the client and commit them without showing further cause. The court does not need to show that the client is dangerous to themselves or others (presently) and they don't need to show that a client can't care for themselves to commit a client to the State Hospital. These conditions are the conditions that must be met for a Baker Act 72 Hour Psyche Evaluation. No cause is needed to violate a CRO. The Judge may be whimsical on these matters and most actions go unchallenged because the Public Defender's don't provide any assistance. Rapists and murders get better defenders. CRO's outlines the conditions of release after state hospital doctors put residents on discharge status. Of concern, CRO's require clients to sign releases of information no matter the client's volition. Without the actual volition of the NGI client there is no 'consideration' and it is not a valid agreement. Jon Mike Wallace MBA, MA, BS (in the last week)

Was there for a competence bench warret. What a trip 8 months later the decided I was ok to stand trial for urinating on the side of a building. What a joke. But . Other the backwoods mentality .ok people. (3 weeks ago)

This facility is exactly what you would expect from a state run institution: inefficient, inexcusable treatment of patients, incompetent untrained staff. I could go on for hours. My daughter is developmentally disabled as well as mentally ill and a current patient. She has been there going on 4 months, hasn't received any therapy or other therapeutic measures outside of medication. HER TREATMENT TEAM AND STAFF HAVE LAUGHED AT HER WHEN SHE SAYS SHE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THINGS!! This hospital, which isn't a real hospital should be eradicated completely. The STATE OF FLORIDA DOESN'T CARE ABOUT MENTALLY DISABLED PEOPLE- that is the message I've gotten for the last 29 years of caring for my daughter and this hospital is PROOF! Taxpayers in this state have no idea how bad the mental health issue is, and if people want the mass shootings to stop it has to start with a competent MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM!!!! Get it together Florida, these people exist and need REAL CARE BY REAL PROFESSIONALS! (3 months ago)

ZERO STARS but had to click on one to write this review, my son is a patient at this facility and since he's been there 1 person murdered and my son has been assaulted more than twice and nothing has been done know action towards the person who assaulted him. This hospital has 50-60 patients per until with 4-5 staff most are women from my observation the workers are there only for a check. I've bee reading up on this hospital and is seeking LEGAL counsel to have this facility investigated because of the treatment and rules and regulations and rights the patients have, my son is in fear of his life in which the staff and doctors have continually ignored the other patient involved in the fight was removed then brought back in the same unit with my son I am very worried about my son and will be calling this hospital as soon as they open and if need be I'll take that 7hr drive to try to save my son's life a CONCERNED MOTHER FIRST ATTEMPT IS THIS REVIEW I will not stop until the rights of each patient are respected not just my son's (9 months ago)

This is the worst place for your loved one to go! I don't know what the doctors do all day because they are not allowed to diagnose anyone, and there is NO treatment but classes where the residents mostly watch movies! They don't attempt to help the patients. It's a place to sit for several years! The residents go nowhere and see nothing. If you are looking for a place to send your loved one to get better then come home and live a normal life, DONT send them here! (a year ago)
