How the Factor of Profitability Determines the Psychiatric Diagnosis. Case Studies of Social Triage in the Texas Psychiatric Hospital Industry
2012 0-7734-2657-4
First hand accounts of private psychiatric hospitals policies and shows that there is often willful neglect of patients who do not have the money to pay, and sometimes there is even manipulation on behalf of psychiatrists and nurses to keep people in therapy just to run up their expenses with insurance companies, only to miraculously ‘cure’ them when their coverage runs out. Testimonial statements during congressional hearings are made available in this text, and the book describes what political fallout occurred, if any, once patients stepped forward to report their lack of care.
