The government should be ashamed at the way they are treating the staff at the state hospitals. At Patton State Hospital, we work on units with murderers, rapists, arsonists, violent criminal offenders who also have mental illness---we do not wear vests, have no guns nor pepper spray...we have only whistles and each other!
