Use of Restraints on Mentally Ill (further development)
Thursday, December 03, 2009  8:16:00 AM

by R. Burrow

New York State NYS law being implemented.....

LATEST NEWS: The "law" has been put into effect. The use of restraints on the mentally ill (even those who, say, are paranoid schizophrenic and ready to throw a TV at you), is prohibited whenever and wherever possible. Tying someone down to a bed so that he or she can barely move, hurts a person's spirit and dignity more than it pains one physically. I don't think that even bulls and goats should be tethered. Put them in a wide-open pen; they weren't intended for sport, entertainment, or to be subdued. The mentally ill, if "AGITATED," get a needle instead, as a first resort, and there usually isn't need for a second measure. Needless to say, we are all human, not animals. Would you want this torture inflicted upon your mother? Your best friend? At long last! The relief and gratitude I feel are immeasurable! Let's take another step towards humane treatment for the mentally ill (and those so labeled). Thank you, NYS :) -finally !
