Other Ugly Truths About Cost-cutting Policy of The Public Psychiatric Medical Facility
Well, based on my experiences and other co-workers of mine of working as part / full-time social workers in the public psychiatric medical facilities, we would wish to reveal the following ugly truths about such medical facilities to the intended readers : -
A ) During the time when anyone was taken as an in-patient in such a medical facility, he / she will be forced to take whatever outdated antipsychotic medications which are full of almost immediately-manifesting disastrous side effects by all those salaried medical operatives and paramedics involved.
Next, each time such in-patients face such a scenario, they would simply have no rights at all to make any comments or complaints about it (such as a change for the better and more advanced medications with far lesser side effects etc).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dopamine_antagonist - Most antipsychotics are dopamine antagonists,..... prolonged / unregulated / incautious / uninformed / uninhibited intakes / usages of such medications may endanger its users to the eventually-inevitable disastrous medicational side effects (due to the unavoidably gradual accumulations of dopamine receptors blocking agents - dopamine antagonist chemicals time over time in their bodies) of Extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) associated with typical antipsychotics:
Early stage – occurs at onset of treatment or following increased dose, patients recover when dose is decreased
Acute dystonias – muscle spasms and sustained abnormal postures and onset occurs within a few days; can be treated with anticholinergics
risk factors include age, gender and family history
Akathisia - pacing and restlessness and onset occurs within the first few months;
Any medications within the family of neuroleptics can cause the condition, though typical antipsychotics appear to have a higher risk than atypicals, specifically first generation antipsychotics like haloperidol. Onset is often within a few weeks of starting the medication but can occur at any time. Risk factors include dehydration, agitation, and catatonia.
The underlying mechanism involves blockage of dopamine receptors. Diagnosis is based on symptoms.
And based on what I have observed, whenever any patients just try to make even the most polite and gentle comment about that, they would be treated really harshly in return, and sometimes just getting slapped and physically bashed up.
So, can you even see any human rights in such a scenario ?
B) No one would actually care about what will or has become of these in-patients eventually, apart from making them the objects of total sarcastic derisions for the sheer amusements of those paid medical operatives and paramedics of those medical facilities .
Besides, even when such disastrous side effects of the related medications have manifested onto and just keep getting worse and worse day after day for the related patients taking them, none of the paid medical operatives and paramedics-in-charge of such medical facilities would actually be bothered at all with anything going on to them.
On the contrary, under such scenarios, such salaried operatives would just ridicule them even more, making all such in-patients suffer even more physical and emotional pains.
And no one actually would care about their inner feelings.
C) whilst the worst part of it is that, instead of taking the corrective procedures and measures to redress the situations and to mitigate the pains and sufferings of such in-patients, such paid medical personnel would still insist such victims suffering from the disastrous side effects of the related outdated medications to continue to take them indefinitely, regardless of the further aggravated physical harms that may very welll inflict subseuqently and continually upon them.
In short, no change for the better and more advanced medications with similar curative benefits but far lesser disastrous side effects will be given to these in-patients regardless of any physical and emotional pains that they have been going through.
And this is done purely to save and cut medical costs at the expense of the health cares, well-beings, welfares and the very lives of these in-patients.
D) In such a connection, the worst of the worsts is that, those medical personnel doing such a practice of continually feeding such patients with the similar outdated medications, well, they actually and simply have the brazen audacity to claim that : "This is done totally out of the kind intention of maintaining and improving the quality of life of our patients" .
Well, as a matter of fact, in terms all those salaried medical personnel, medical operatives and paramedics, they just simply strike us as hypocritically callous, cruel and histrionically sinister, treacherous and conscienceless.
Lastly, we feel that these people should just go to hell and get burnt forever in inferno and get damned to perdition in hell immediately upon their deaths.
