Posted by Upset Patient (as ),
Within the last three years I have been admitted to the Cairns Mental Health Department with symptoms of severe depression.
On both occasions I was submitted to a barrage of unwanted and unnecessary religious diatribe from different nurses.
I am not a religious person and I clearly stated this fact several times to each nurse and was either ignored or, on one occasion, told that I would never recover until I found my God.
I found all of this treatment to be highly offensive, unwarranted and extremely unprofessional. At the time I was in no condition to make a formal complaint but I wish to do so now.
