Do psychiatric hospitals prepare people to stay out of psychiatric hospitals

Posted Aug 01 2012 8:29am

Heart surgery should prepare people not to have the same heart surgery.

Brain surgery should prepare people not to have the same brain surgery.

Setting a broken bone should prepare you not to have the same bone set again.

Is psychiatric hospitalization the only form of medical intervention that prepares you to have exactly the same procedure that was done once done over and over again?  Is it the only form of medical intervention that assumes failure is due to its patients and not its procedures?  Do psychiatric hospitals prepare people to stay out of psychiatric hospitals?

Have we been putting our eggs in a basket too often empty?
