The psychiartrist, saw her once a few dsys ago, then sent someone else who spoke to her for a few minutes. I signed a form today and she better be out tomorrow or I will freak out!! They should be closed up! Also, had her on Prozac 30 for 2 days and called me today to increase it to 40-I said NO, Depression needs to be treated with a balanced approach-diet, exercise, talk treatment. These doctors are ignorant fools!! Bad place!!!!!!!
It is well documented that many people experience involuntary psychiatric treatment as an assault. As with sexual assaults, the "mental health" system needs to respect the very basic human requirement at such times that ―No means ―No . It is also well documented that many suicidal people are struggling with complex personal histories . For these people, involuntary psychiatric treatment just traumatises them, often worsening or indeed sometimes triggering suicidal feelings...

I got sick and suicidal from psychiatric drugs for insomnia anxiety before this place and this Dr Ventre scumbag just did everyting he could including threats of injection to coerce more nasty pills on me.

I hope you file a lawsuit.

I am 3 months pregnant and had a dependency on prescription opiates from a car accident I was involved in a few years ago. This was the ONLY place that would detox a pregnant woman so I figured I should suck it up and go. From the moment I walked in I was treated like a criminal and given rules and orders like a prisoner. When I had called on the phone I asked them if DCF was notified for any reason (because I have a 6 year old daughter whom I left home w my fiancé) and they assured me that Dcf is only notified of there is reported domestic violence in the home. The moment I told the "nurse" in assessment that I had a child (she kept prying at me and asking about my life at home) they told me that that had to call Dcf. I freaked out a demanded that i be let go and they reatrained me like a prisoner. About 12 hours into my torturous stay at ft lauderdale hospital.. They let us use the phones for ten minutes. I called my fiancé and he told me that Dcf was taking my daughter from school. There was nothing he could do. I was already admitted and I signed a request to leave, but they won't let you leave for at least 24 hours if it is AMA.(They are able to pull that crap bc they have a Psyc ward on the floor below) I was scared so I stayed until the nutty psychiatrist said "I was ok to go home" which was a joke. They were detoxing me off benzos using Ativan when I don't even use benzos!!! So they gave a pregnant woman Ativan all because the nurse in assessment marked off That my drug test was positive for benzos on accident. I looked at the drug test and it was only positive for opiates. Smh now I'm worried about my baby even more. The food is horrible, they don't let you even have a cigarette except during certain times.. This place makes you want to go off the deep end and lose your mind. I beg you, do not go here if you can help it.

Stay away from the Mexican MD

Daniel E Chervony, a pompous arrogant baffooon who was truly clueless, takes a refresher course because he know nothing.

The Pavilion is the Pits and they threw Chervony out of there.

Dear angry parent,
In a similar case reported in The Herald on June 4, a Tamarac, Fla., woman, Norma Tringali, has sued Fort Lauderdale Hospital and a psychiatrist, Dr. Sohail Punjwani, who worked there, claiming both overmedicated her 16-year-old son with a cocktail of mental health drugs, some of which have not been approved for the treatment of children.
The son, Emilio Villamar, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder by Punjwani in 2002.
According to the article, the teen was given 16 different drugs, some of which he was still being given when he died from a heart attack.

Dont let them get away with it, I saw so many victims of abuse in this place yelling in the hallway "I am going to sue this place" and they laugh cause it rarely happends.
Disregard any advice of Dr. Daniel Chervony, Moskowitz, Matinasevic, Vasqeuz as well, in it only for the money, They have no clue. You've confirmed my complaints. I think they have thrown Chervony out of the Pavilion. Nutrition is a lot lot better,

Also abused here wrote:
I was also abused by this "hospital", given a bogus diagnosis and like others said my refusal to let them drug me into oblivion with those pills was used as a reason to make threats, hold me longer and ripoff my insurance. Beware of "Dr Ventre" he is a crooked quack that knows how to abuse you and the system.
Me too, the reason I reside in Gerogia, must write your head off to prople in charge, I think I got Chervony out of the Pavilion. Don't just stop at this forum. Your voice will be heard.

The list of phoney baloney rip off unknolegeable Phychiatrist mounts every day because of the $$$$. My idiot precribed drugs not approved by the FDA for people over 50, had signs of prkinson, yet continued to write scripts. Why?% miunutes of his time is not enough either.

Stress and sugar are at the root of many mental health concern, look into reducing both.

Thanks for the confirmation!!!

I have for the last ten years dealt with all my psychical, emotional, mental health issues nutritionally and far far better off.

Everything can be death with by just learning to eat the right foods for you. Put everything back in balance, exercise helps as well.
I had diabetic comas translated by Floridian MD idiots as Bipolar, thank “God” a female doctor in Georgia, not about money, set the record straight for me and I have been fine ever since.

Just lowered my blood sugar level nutritionally..

It is no wonder these doctors eventually put themselves to sleep permanently, they wind up not able to live with themselves.

Do no harm means nothing to Floridian doctors.

The Marketing of Madness is the definitive documentary on the psychiatric drugging industry. Here is the real story of the high income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit centre.

In this film you’ll discover that… Many of the drugs side effects actually make your ‘mental illness’ worse. Psychiatric drugs often induce aggression and depression.

This film plunges into an industry corrupted by corporate greed and delivers a shocking warning from courageous experts who value public health over dollar.

And for family members who get those "help me" phone calls from loved ones in Fort Lauderdale Hospital, its cause everything they tell you on the phone about this wretched place is true. No one is getting "help" in this snake pit of a hospital.

A Tamarac mother sued Fort Lauderdale Hospital and a psychiatrist who worked there, saying they overmedicated her teenage son with a cocktail of mental health drugs — some of which have not been approved for the treatment of children.

The boy, Emilio Villamar, died of a sudden heart attack. He was 16.

When I was 13, my psychologist thought it would be best for me to go to a hospital for a night to be treated. I had depression and I was at a very low time in my life, however, by all means I was mentally stable as can be. At first, I was sent to Joe DiMaggio hospital which had very good reviews. However, my dad realized his insurance did not cover it. They looked at near by mental hospitals and found the Ft. Lauderdale Hospital that wasn't so far. They called up a worker from FLH to come get me. A perverted man came, told my parents they weren't aloud in the car with me, handcuffed me and threw me in the back of a car like an animal. When I got there, they would not let me see my parents. I was forced into the waiting room with crazy adults that were fighting each other, and trying to talk to me. I was completely frightened at this point. I went up so the front and told the worker that I was scared and asked if there was somewhere else I could go. He told me to sit down and deal with it. Then I began crying. The old men were verbally abusing me and making fun of me being scared. The workers were carelessly sitting there. Finally, they let me see my parents. After waiting from 10pm to 5:30am, I was finally ready to go up to the adolescence floor. Before that, a perverted man pulled me into a room and locked the door. He went through my bags and cut every string I had, and cut the wires out of my bras. He then made me strip for a "check". I had to squat and cough... really?? Basically, the workers are uneducated, judgmental, and RUDE. This place over medicates you. I got rape threats from the other boy patients in the hospital. When I spoke up, the uneducated "nurse" just said "don't have sex." REALLY WOMAN? The workers make threats to keep you longer. This place is dirty, and the food is horrible. You will leave feeling 100 times worse than you came in. NO ONE deserves to be put through this hell.

There are much better alternatives for balancing neurotransmitters and hormones, like a quality krill oil, soy lecithin, Natural Alternatives are way more effective then these dangerous side effects, life shortening drugs but there is no MONEY in it for doctors. Must detox as well, these drugs do a number on your kidneys and liver.

Mental Health patients are being extremely abused and taken advantage of, Please read Natural health news letters. Michael Adams and Dr. Joseph Mercola, Mental illness begins in the digestive tract and are not chemical imbalances in the brain per se. Proper chemicals need to be digested right from your GUT, a quality pro biotic is very important also.

I dumped all drugs ten years ago, saved my life by doing so and went whole foods instead. The last drug they tried was Risperdol, I would of had breast down to my knees, this proves to me conclusively they simply have no clue.
More at: What's the Real Deal at Coral Springs? and Debate: Healthcare
You can bring yourself back to a more healthy state for sure just by learning to eat right for YOU. Good Luck

Any questions? Please post, I'll try to give you my best answer.

Ive been trying to reach my mother at Fort Lauderdale Hospital for a week. Everytime I call I ask I am told I cant give any information.The rude lady with the Caribbean accent who answers has no compassion. I told her can she check if my mother is still housed their because I am worried-my children and I spoke with my mom daily then all of a sudden stopped. My mother stopped calling us and we are given the run around when we call.I tell them I am not asking for any medical information on her I just want to know is still their or been transferred elsewhere? Again I am rudely told "I cant tell you". In desperation I ask I just want to know if my mother is alive and breathing? Did something happened to her in their and they are covering themselves up. I am told " we dont keep records in system of past patients just current".This makes no sense to me-you are telling me you dispose of patient records immediately IF they are released. Tomorrow is mothers day and I have no clue what these people did with my mother. The rudeness and bad attitudes of staff does not help.Please help me-where is my mother?

My experience of this over price facility back in 2004 is as follows. The Doctor put me on the wrong medication for my mental health problems for 18 days. I actually stop paying my health insurance so they would never accept me as a patient again. Months later I walked into a treatment facility in Boyton Beach which was free and within two weeks I was stablized and continue treatment with a private Dr. to this day. They should have locked up my jewelry and put it in a safe at admissions because the floor staff removed all my jewelry from me never to be seen again. My emerald ring was over $3,000 and a very special piece to me. I wrote two letters to the facility and did not hear back from them. I even returned in person with my son to try and get my jewelry back. No they could no find it.
In summary do not take a family member to this facility. Medication was not correct and their staff is probably under paid so they steal the patients jewelry.
