Twenty-six patients died at Chelmsford Private Hospital during the 1960s and 1970s, with only perfunctory investigation by authorities. After the failure of the agencies of medical and criminal investigation to tackle complaints about Chelmsford, a series of articles in the early 1980s in the Sydney Morning Herald exposed the abuses at the hospital and forced the authorities to take action, and a Royal Commission was appointed.
The New South Wales government recently admitted that three people over the last three years had been kept continuously unconscious for 48 hours whilst undergoing ECT
Poor unfortunates who got onto the Chelmsford doctors' "conveyer belt to psychiatric hell" did not all end up in the doctors' own private hospital in the northern Sydney suburbs. The simple fact of the matter was that the good doctors did not have much in the way of equipment there. Sure they could strap patients down and apply electroshock And they had beds into which patients drugged into a deep coma could lie for days soaking in their own excreta in the care of partly trained nurses. But when it came to monitoring the condition of their patients ... well they did not have much equipment, and certainly were not set up for surgery.
agreed what a stupid freakin idiot

Is it possible that sleep is an act of evolution?? What I got from the study is that sleep seems to be a huge factor keeping us humane...it protects us.
