Cleaning house at the Veterans Home in Hastings


Anonymous Anonymous said...

The Hastings home offers care to about 170 vets with chronic illnesses, including addiction and mental health problems...

Tough group to determine issues like "fear, intimidation and retaliation..."

When someone who is paranoid starts saying someone on the staff is out to get him... is there someone out to get him or does he need to have his med's adjusted?

When the guy who has complained about the program gets a dirty UA for THC was he kicked out for compaining or for smoking dope?

Not any easy business to be in.

No Sharon, but in the 1970's and 1980's I worked in half way houses for men coming out of the prison system. Most of them with mental health or chemical dependency issues.

My point was that when someone is in a place for mental health issues, sometimes it is hard to tell if their complaints are real or related to their mental health issues.

It was not surprising that most of the guys in the house that we had returned for prison for substance abuse thought we were out to get them...

On the other hand, I do agree with the old adage: Just because I am paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't someone out to get me....

I want nothing but the best for the men in these facilities. They deserve to be well taken care of and treated with respect.

But, that also means that the ones who are there wanting to live in a safe, chemically free environment have a right to expect the staff to boot out those who are using in the house or those who are acting out and making them feel not safe.
