  • It is hard for me to understand being put into seclusion for being unable to sleep. That was my problem and I spend many nights in seclusion because of it. The only thing I can understand was that it made it easy for the workers. As soon as I would come out of my room I would either be threatened to be locked up or locked up and restrained, just for going out of my room. I could not control this behavior. At only one hospital of several, they did have someone to talk to and help people to go back to bed. There does need to a staff person available to the patients just to talk to, especially in the evenings. I was ignored whenever I tried to talk to staff. Also, it was inhumane to be denied access to visitors and personal medication for at least the first 24 hours of lock up.
