above all, ect must be compassionately administered as the patient is generally already in a vulnerable state. i have had unremarkable treatments but also i have also had nurses laughing as i went under, doctors refusing to treat the side effects, no family members allowed to walk me back to the unit and listened as i was coming out of anesthesia to staff telling jokes about me from my records. these may all seem insignificant, but in a manic state they all serve to exacerbate the current mood and the confusion following treatment.
