I am a 26 year old female. I signed my self into this facility in a spur of the moment decision. I really enjoyed my time there as well as the nursing staff on the woman's unit and the director of the CD unit. There was only one incident and staff member I had a problem with. Everyone makes mistakes, own up to it when you do. After filing my complained I was able to leave without waiting 72 hours.

I am a Family Nurse Practitioner. My daughter and son-in-law recently made the decision to voluntarily admit their adopted 11 year old son to the children's unit for further diagnostic testing and medication adjustment. No suicidal or homocidal ideation. No threatening behavior to other children or adults. The unit provides anything but a therapeutic milieu. No empathy from the nursing staff. I have supervised and been responsible for entire service lines in a hospital setting. In my 35 years of nursing experience, I have never witnessed a nursing unit that has failed so miserably to provide an acceptable level of care. The staff is indifferent to the children and their basic social and psychological needs It is heartbreaking to witness children as young as six years old crying as their parents are forced to leave while the nursing staff provides NO emotional support. My next steps will be to call the local mental health advocate office and the Joint Commission to make official complaints about this facility.

I was told by our pediatrician that my Autistic 11 year old daughter would need to be evaluated by the staff here because she refused to work at school and poked herself with a pencil. She did not even break the skin. The pediatrician, whom we'd only seen twice, said she did not feel qualified to evaluate her. Trusting her we brought our daughter to this facility where we were informed that she had to be admitted for at least 72 hours. We questioned this and were threatened that if we did not admit her voluntarily based on the pediatricians recommendation, she would be involuntarily committed by the police. We were scared and felt forced to put our child in this facility. The first morning after admit they had put our daughter, without our permission on medication. We visited her that evening where we were greeted by a pile of vomit in her room that was already dried, when we asked about cleaning it up, we were told housekeeping had been called 4 times already. So the vomit had sat in my child's room ALL DAY. After the 72 hours we demanded our child back and were told the 72 hours only starts after we sign paperwork demanding her release, we were also told she had had her meds changed, so in 72 hours, my child who had never been previously medicated had been put on at least 2 different drugs without our consent. They had also added 2 new diagnosis to her. We demanded that our child NOT be given ANY more medication and that we speak to a doctor. We were told there were NO DOCTORS in the facility, which was either a lie or a terrible mis-practice of medicine. My daughter has now been admitted against our will for 6 days and we have not talked to a doctor since day 1. She has also been wearing the same clothing since day 1 even though we provided more than a weeks worth. We have consulted a lawyer and may have to fight in court to get our child back. We never thought our child needed to be in a psychiatric hospital, she has never been violent to us, her siblings or classmates. We were threatened by this hospitals staff with losing her and our other children if we didn't comply with their demands of "voluntarily" admitting our child. Please avoid this hospital at all costs.

I was totally mislead when I brought my 16 year old to brentwood. I was assuming that she would be evailuated by a Physician but I was sadly mistaken. After a breif questionaire I was asked to sign a paper stating that my daughter is going to be admitted. It happened so fast I was not given any details of the plan or what my next step was. Later that night my daughter called said that there was visiting every evening. I went that next night to see her and she told how scared she was there that her room mate had taken her shoes and some of her clothes. I asked why she didnt talk to staff she said that they were mean and unapproachable. That she was on lock down because another child was having an issue. I immediatly felt that I needed to get her out of there, I signed the 72 hour noticed. The day the 72 hour was to expire I finally spoke with staff who at this point had tried to make my daughter take medication which I was never consulted about. The Dr said he thinks thats she would benefit for a "few more days" and I should reconsider the 72 hour. While I was sitting talking to the couslor and Dr I heard the staff speaking to the kids! It was horrible I wouldnt speak to a dog that way, No wonder these kids are angry I would be too if I was treated that way. If you are looking to get help for your child this is not the place! My heart truly goes out to the people who are unaware of their loves ones situation. Be strong be assertive and get them out of Brentwood!

just a little advise, if you are planning to go to this hospital or send a loved one there...RETHINK THIS!!!! we sent our son there not because he was a threat to himself or others just to find out if there was a better medicine to put him on for his anger, he has never threatend to harm himself or anyone else! we were told before we left on our 6 hr trip to this hospital he has a room and bed available for him when we got there they still said he had a room and we could check him out whenever we wanted, however when we get done with the paper work and go upstairs to the childrens unit to finish the process the nurse informs us that he did not have a room and would be sleeping on a matress on the floor in the day room!! the nurse said we were suppose to be told that before we signed any paperwork! well they failed to tell us that so we told them we wanted to sign him out thats when they informed us that we had NO rights to him for atleast 72hrs! not to mention we look down and find a pill on the floor and let them know its there, tim the intake guy said im so sorry and picked it up! any one of those kids could have found that picked it up and ate it!! this hospital is not a safe place for a child! once we went back to visit him for visitation the next day between 5:30 to 6:15 we discover they have placed him in a room by taken someone elses kid out his bed putting him on the floor in the day rooom and putting our son in that kids bed! then they put a bloody pillow in our sons bed for him to sleep on! that is unsanitary and quite discusting!! now they are saying we might not be able to get our son even after the 72 hrs they told us yesterday! bc there is no doctor there over the weekends to watch him on his new meds! this hospital should be shut down! i am contacting an attorney and something will be done about this matter!!! please rethink going or sending someone you know to this place!!!

I agree with the last statement. Went to have my mother talk to someone with the intentions of setting up an out patient program. Before we knew it the lady, to whom I have no idea of her credentials if any, and, after taking 2 insurance cards and making CALL to doctor, states that my mother could not leave that she had to sign herself in for further evaluation. Misleading us to believe that a plan would be sought to help her obtain the tools she needed to able to deal with her own mother in nursing home, dealing with her mothers finances, while getting over major hip surgery and losing about 150 in 4 to 5 months. All were overwhelming to her. Instead of one on one therapy she is locked out of her room all day with the exception of (nap time) then thrown in one large room with patients that are bi-polar and have schizophrenia. Where they have NO stimulation, like games, tv. I am very disgusted to say the least. My mom did tell me she does meet with a psychiatric doctor in the morning but it is to only reduce, take away or add to her meds. NOT DEAL WITH HER AS AN INDIVIDUAL!! Or counseling. Now they are holding my mother against her will as she told the "Doctor 1/17/2011" that the facility was not helping her and that she wanted to be released. Keep in mind now they manipulated her into signing herself in under false pretenses. She at the moment she is being held against her will as far as I am concerned. I will post later. Have someone in the field of psychiatry that will help provide her with one on one extensive counseling. And law on it now.

I would not let these people treat my dog. Their admission staff uses misinformation to have you admit yourself or a loved one. Once admitted their staff uses coercion and threats to keep an individual admitted. This place is a hell hole. If you love your family member stay clear of this place.

The hospital is a mental health facility. This means there is therapy and medication. You are not in for a vacation there. You are to do your part in participating in the therapy. The facility is being remodeled and the therapist do their best.

All I am going to say is that I went to this place. A mental hospital is not a special place. It's actually a quite horrible place to be. A mental hospital is nothing more than a building with lights, tables, and chairs in it. And very horrible beds. It couldn't have been more obvious how much the staff (or at least 95% of the staff) truly DOES NOT care about any one person to walk through those doors. And even worse, perhaps because they do not care, their carelessness and inconsideration for people's well being shines right through.People who go to mental institutions are people who are abused either physically or verbally by people who should have been good to them. Such as their own parents. If you plan on going here, or are unwillingly forced into it, I suggest that you do your best to be self aware and moderately occupied during all waking hours. All I'll say about medication is... Don't expect it to heal you.
