886. Lake Alice Hospital

Lake Alice Hospital, established 1950 closed in 1999.

Recently former patients who were minors when they were placed at the hospital have come forward telling how they were treated with electric shock and drugs not for treatment but for punishment.

The authorities failed to monitor the hospital allowing the abuse to take place.

It cannot have been fun to be placed there as child.
