Now seen both ends.
this spring i was in the hospital for about 2 weeks, best thing i ever did, food actually really good. some mean nurses but others ok.
well, a few weeks ago i was in the hospital for one night and then moved to 'center' not technically hospital but on the same compound, some affiliation-staff was HORRIBLE, treated all 'inmates' like dogs, food was some of the most disgusting i've seen-most animals wouldn't have eaten it. food cold several times not cooked completely. Staff always gave you the run around on questions and i don't know if it was intentional or if they've just been there too long but they played some head games with you too almost Making you more crazy then you were...
Scary violent place. not even to mention the unhigenic(sp?) spaces (including bathrooms/showers went three days without cleaning (so did i for that matter)-no soap, no tp sometimes- old vomit still smelling in some corners.

SO, on that lovely note. i have seen a couple sides, however the latter was not technically a hospital-and believe me i was praying every day that i could get transfered back into the hospital. At least in the hospital they let you go outside you could even see outside through personal windows! in the center it was literally an 8x8 cell my 'windows" had what i call chicken wire in side and frosted and bubbled so all i could really tell is if it was day or night and i could see that dang chicken wire.

ok, enough rant. Please remember-when i did go to the hospital itself it maybe wasn't a stay at a 4-star hotel but i got help-it saved me. and it was clean and food was very edible.

i wouldn't mind finding out more about private hospitals though.
