The so called article in the Daily Record was a piece of farcical nonsense. Based on outright lies and gross exaggerations based on the ranting of people like Marie who has spent a lifetime manipulating every organisation that came across her including Nurses, Doctors ,Social work, and Police ,I have been on duty when she was brought into a ward in Lennox castle hospital , handcuffed , shouting and roaring , stinking of urine surrounded by injured Police officers whom she had bit, scratched kicked and punched ,on her journey to Lennox Castle. Not because we desperately wanted these types of offensive, abusive individuals but on the contrary because the police didn’t know what to do with her, unlike the tripe published in the Daily Rag , I can substantiate and prove my story.
The guilty relative syndrome is well known to those of us who have worked in long stay facilities. They are guilty that they have given up on the care of their relative, sometimes for very good reasons {the demands of 24hr a day care} and sometimes because they simply couldn’t be bothered. Either way none of them the few we ever saw had any intentions of ever removing their relative from the situation. Margaret Cullen is a classic example they moved their “shame” of having a mentally handicapped person on to the hospital whined about it every time they visited { which was rarely}. Honestly, If I thought for one second a family member was being mistreated they would have been home with me that very day. While many of our residents came from families with no incidence of mental handicap, which were loving and faithful to their family member. Sadly the majority of family members proved the theory that apples do not fall far from the tree. Then we have the families that used the handicapped person as a cash cow milking the system for every penny they could , money which their poor relative was unlikely to ever benefit from.
