I have to agree with Tammy that Fairmont General Hospital's mental health services are very inadequate and they treat patients like they are retarded. The female counselors are very abusive to the patients, especially if they try to assert themselves. I am looking forward to Highland Mental Health Hospital in Clarksburg. I have been a patient at FGH and will never go back again. It was truly a nightmare. I hope folks will now go to Highland and get good health care and get the respect we all deserve. Mental illness is not an easy illness to live with. It is even harder dealing with uncaring people.
==========

There will soon be a new mental health hospital in Clarksburg. The West Virginia Health Care Authority has approved plans, despite longstanding objections of Fairmont General Hospital. The authority granted a certificate of need to Highland Hospital. Highland plans to renovate the old United Hospital Center in Clarksburg which has 150 beds. The state saw a serious need for a new mental health hospital.

Many patients who had gone to Fairmont General Hospital, psychiatric section, had been very unhappy with the services they received. Complaints included dealing with rude female counselors who were only interested in bolstering their ego by criticizing, demoralizing, and complaining to patients. These complaints also included episodes of verbal abuse by these counselors. The male counselors got good reviews since they were considered very professional and caring. Many patients who had gone to FGH for mental health services were very unhappy about the way they were treated. Patients felt like zombies because of being over medicated by psychiatrists who didn't much care about patients or their feelings.

Once these patients were released and later sent to the out-patient behavioral clinic, it wasn't much better.

I am very excited that Highland Hospital will now be helping out those folks who require mental health services. It is my belief that most of the patients from FGH will now go to Highland to look for higher quality services.

I agree with all the comment but where can we get justice if the doctors use the rules and regulation for their greed or to cover their mistakes! The patience become the victim! How do we safe the patience from its pain!

I heard there's a big storm brewing at FGH. I think we all need to pray for patients, especially the patience.

FGH is a great hospital and has provided excellent Mental Health Care to my family. To say that patients are treated "retarded" tells me about your level of intelligence.

To say FGH has provided excellent mental health care to your family tells me a lot about your family.

Judgmental aren't we? That makes you just as bad as the hospital staff YOU were complaining about now doesn't it?

The hospital has provided excellent healthcare all around. Just because YOU may have had a bad experience, doesn't mean EVERYONE does.

Before you go bashing health care and facilities, why don't you take a look at ALL OF them before you go comparing and complaining.

No facility is perfect. get over it and move on

Umm....I wasn't the one complaining about the hospital. I was judging you the same way you judged the person you responded to. If you can't take it then I suggest you not dish it out!

Been there a couple of times and after two 14 day stays. I've been clean and sober for 25 years.
