Terribly Ignorant Doctors! Patient Objectification

Staff Attitude:

This is 2022. The Doctors are relatively uneducated! They only treat patients with Benzos, SSRIs, ECTs, Antipsychotics, Lithium & Sernase. They have no other ammunition for treatment purposes. There is an utter lack of comprehension on the part of the doctors about the illness being faced by the patient and the patient is often objectified and nullified. There is a lot a physical and psychological Force being used against the patient as the patient is always perceived to be incompetent.

To top it off the guards and the mama's working there are horrible. Two of them, Prasad and Ganesh would keep syphoning out bribes from patients and telling them rotten things about meeting prostitutes after their release, which is an utter shame. The doctors don't do anything about this! There is an absolute lack of control on the part of the doctors and patients get regularly traumatized and induced with fear by the uneducated staff guards.

On many occasions, the Guards Ganesh and Sagar have beaten up the patients and then the next day due to the cognitive impairment caused by the ECT the patient again forgets the pain inflicted by the guards and the process repeats itself. What Madness is this?!

This Guard Ganesh is truly a MONSTER! It just shows what a lack of education can culminate into, a bribe-hoarding, fear-inducing, lethargic monster! An Absolute terror to society, terrorists to be precise. Once after a patient got beat up and I complained, the doctor just said that "these things happen" and nothing was done to remove this monster, Ganesh.

The Nurses are picked off from the Slums and they don't even know how to give an intravenous injection properly. I was pricked 8 times once and the injection was still not properly administered. What a Horror Show!

The Doctors know how to use complicated vocabulary to sound smart but they lack the essence of compassion and right care towards the patient. This is the case with all the doctors out there. They take pride in their position they couldn't care if the patient breaks down into tears completely, a patient that psychologically breaks completely and that is exactly the only thing that they are trying to achieve there. They just want to break you down psychological. They do nothing but to add to your collection of negative memories, this is the case with Dr. Natasha, Dr. Sheeba and Dr. Priyanka.

I hope that my voice is heard and people are more aware of my experience here. This place gives ECTs like its candy and they don't care how cognitively impaired the patient becomes which begets more pain which begets more sorrow and more complications for the patient in the future. The patients don't know anything what's going on and it's the same story with the doctors out there.

I have been given more than 12 ECTs and this was absolutely terrifying. The doctors didn't tell me about my treatment plan or inform me beforehand about any procedure. There is an absolute lack of professionalism in this hospital where doctors are just trying to climb up the rungs of name, recognition and position. Please be kind to yourself and don't enter into this facility by chance or by intent.

Please be aware and Please empathize with my experiences to save yourself from further misery! Everything in this review of mine is my opinion and my personal experience, please do view it in this light only. And even after saying all this and speaking my heart out nothing is going to be done! This is the state of the Indian Psychiatric Community where physical abuse, prostitution, psychological abuse and incompetence runs rampant. NOTHING IS EVER DONE ABOUT ANYTHING! Please do not go to this hospital as the doctors try to be good but lack the quality of being so, they do not know how to and are not trained to deal with compassion as compassion is not something that they have been taught. Its a Tragedy really, a serious tragedy of the medical staff of masina, the nurses, ward boys and the doctors and to further voice out the truth the ward boys have also on multiple occasions beat their former patients its horrendous the treatment that they provide. I am absolutely horrified at their level of competence when it comes to caring for the patient for all the staff at masina. I really wish that there would be someone to teach these guys and put them on the right path. What a tragedy! Thank you for your time!
