This is an AMAZING place! The staff is caring and attentive. They took care of all of my needs and made me feel welcome and safe. Thank you Ft. Lauderdale Hospital for being there for me when I needed it most. I recommend this hospital to anyone who is looking for a professional, well established facility for behavioral health.

Do NOT admit anyone that you love here. It is a living nightmare. We had a loved one become a patient here and nothing good came from it~ he ultimately lost his life. Now trying to get copies of his medical records has become equally frustrating. I've been calling repeatedly only to get transferred to voice mail with no response. Please, please learn from our sad experience and go elsewhere~ notice there are no ... view more

Major Dump! I was subjected to being in close proximity to crazy people coming off of heavy drugs. Long wait to be admitted (5 hrs.) The rooms are horrible. I had to wait 3 days just to see a psychiatrist. Then he wouldn't release me until the next day until I had a meeting with him and my family. I was released with no such meeting. I was not given meds until I saw the doc. who I had to wait 3 days for! Never ever s... view more

They like to overmedicate at this place, for example: 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. Emilio was found slumped over in his room at Fort Laud... view more

One thing I can tell you with ...

One thing I can tell you with absolute certainty is that in the psychiatry business, the culture of ‘looking the other way’ is the norm, not the exception. You would be extremely hard pressed to find anyone working in a psych ward that will speak up when viscous crimes are committed by staff against other human beings. The fact is that I’ve never once met anyone in the business that has done so. After years of resear... view more

Denied informed consent to treatment

You will be treated like trash in this place. I asked about my informed consent like it sais on the patient bill of rights and was ignored. It looks like this:\r \r I, the undersigned, understand that I am about to be prescribed one or more drugs by Dr. __________________.\r \r The drug(s) I am to be prescribed is (are) the following: \r ____________________.\r ____________________.\r \r I understand that a D... view more

The subjective experience of being forcibly injected with psychotropic drugs and left isolated has created one of my longest-standing recurring nightmares. There I was, a confused and frightened young person. I felt at the time that I needed respite, advice, support and comfort. Instead, the impact of the coerced psychiatric drugs felt like a wrecking ball to the cathedral of my mind, a mind which was indeed tro... view more
