Anyone have any strange encounters with nursing staff in that place? They get you in then lock the doors. Just wondered if everything was kosher or if some funny stuff exists.

Took a relative there one time under the COPE program which they advertise on their website as a "confidential free assessment and referral to outpatient programs." Made an appointment under that program. We went in through the lobby, waited for a little under two hours and no one so much as came in and said "Sorry we are swamped, etc." Almost two hours hits and I went to the desk area and said we were leaving because we weren't going to wait any longer, and the receptionist said she could not let us out until a nurse saw us. I said "neither of us is a patient and you cannot lock doors on us." She said a nurse had to see my relative before we could leave. I got loud and a nurse came in to see us within five seconds, after I heard her yell from a break room "They'd wait longer than that in the ER!" Anyway after all that time she says "I'm just an intake nurse, I don't do assessments." Well then WHY IN THE MOTHER F*CK DID YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR US UNDER THE COPE PROGRAM???? They finally let us out after she realized we weren't going to consent to inpatient treatment. I almost called a lawyer over it but decided I didn't want the hassle and didn't want to embarrass my relative because they were ashamed enough already about needing treatment. They are treading a thin line on falsely imprisoning people who are not patients of theirs. I wouldn't set foot in that place.

I know a person that went in on their own. They were told that they could pretty much leave when they wanted. The person was dealing with severe anxiety. That was NOT the case. Two weeks later He got out. The doors are locked and you have to be cleared to get out. Be cautious about going in your own there.

Don't ever go there. They have the worst care possible and that over paid know it all Karen Yost makes the rules up as she goes along. It's a micky mouse hospital ran by a mickey mouse staff. And yes you have the right to leave and refuse treatment the reason they don't want you to leave it they are terrified of being sued, cause some girl left an assessment and blew her brains out in the park the next day.

First of all, noone could have yelled from a breakroom because their is no breakroom on the first floor where Copes is located so you are way off. Second of all you are not locked in before you have even been seen unless the police bring you in but if your relative was bad enough to need to come to a psychiatric facility you aren't very smart for wanting to take them out. Now former receptionist, perhaps there is a reason you are FORMER and not current. If any of you think you can do better than Karen Yost or any of the staff there perhaps you should spend less time on this stupid site and more time in school and you can come try to do it better.

Well sweetheart, it may not have been a breakroom, but it certainly sounded like a room where several nurses were sitting on their fat asses and doing nothing. After you get through the lobby yes dear, the door locks, and they refused to let me or my relative out, and neither one of us were patients and hadn't been seen by anyone. My relative was having a new onset of panic attacks, we wanted an assessment and referral, we received an appointment for an assessment and referral, and instead after 2 hours and some yelling received some dumbass intake nurse trying to do an admission, for PANIC ATTACKS. I don't feel that ER's are appropriate places for people with panic attacks, however it was close to a holiday and there were no doctor's offices open so we believed River Park was all that we had. They advertised an assessment and referral and instead tried to admit him as an inpatient. I can't believe you would defend that.

Forgive the f*ck out of me for not having enough cuckoo friends and relatives to know how to navigate the mental health system on a holiday weekend. Apparently you're intimately familiar with the place. Not sure what that says about you.

as a matter of fact I am familiar with the place, I am an employee there and proud to be one. I am one of the "fat ass nurses" as you called us. and it sounds to me like perhaps you should not have been let back out onto the street so maybe you should be upset at us. as for a panic attack, the emergency room is the appropriate place for that, not a 72 hour hold in a mental facility. sounds to me like you were maybe trying to get your poor relative locked up so you could pilfer through his/her things while the poor sole was locked up. I understand why you may be upset, it's hard living month to month waiting on a check isn't it. so why not lock your relatives up and see what they have you can sell. lol

Hey honey, I saw them, they had fat asses. Just speaking the truth. I guess you should go get some more schooling so you don't have to settle for working at a mental hospital, and so you can keep your facts straight. We weren't asking for a 72 hour hold, idiot. I'm not sure what part of "assessment and referral" your tiny mind doesn't understand. I think I said it four times, and it's pretty clear neither one of us wanted my relative to be "locked up." We left, remember, genius? Maybe all the fat cells are taking over your brain cells.

I doubt if River Park would appreciate its "nurses" on here calling its patients' and potential patients' family members thieves and questioning their motives. But then again, it goes right along with the professionalism of locking in people who aren't patients.

I'm sorry you had a bad experience, I have been there for several years and I know how I feel about my patient's so I won't try to speak for everyone but you should not speak on something you have no authority on. Nothing else needs to be said as far as I am concerned. Good luck because it sounds like you can use it.

Something I have no authority on? That makes no sense whatsoever. I have authority on my own experience and can and will say whatever I want about it. You have no business saying that your patients' relatives are trying to have them committed to steal their stuff. How obnoxious. For your information my relative got an appointment with a reputable service the next day and was given the help they needed and does just fine today without medication or counseling, no thanks to River Park.

You told that nurse to get a better education? Do you realize what it takes to get a nursing degree? It is extreamly difficult. Thats why normally 25% of the original class graduates. They cannot be to dumb. Can you wrap your tiny mind around that? Being a mental health nurse is a 'real nurse' it is also a good nursing job. I hate dumba$$ people!

Yes I do realize it, since I have a nursing degree and license. And that's your opinion about mental health nurses. Far as I'm concerned most of them aren't much more sane than their patients.

Btw over 60% of my nursing class graduated and some of those that didn't have gone and graduated a semester behind, or are back in school again. I'm very proud of them.

Good for you. I don't suppose you read the post. We weren't there for an intake. I know what hospital we were at, thanks.
