Hartgrove is a horrible hospital and you should never go there! I was admitted there in December of 2010 and I was shocked at how staff treated me and all of the other patients.
I requested restraints if I became out of control when I was admitted, and they injected me with medication against my will. When they thought patients have misbehaved, they withheld food and toiletries from them. They seperated the boys and girls with a door but would still let men into the women's section. This made me and a few other patients extremley uncomfortable. In one case, a patient standing right in front of the front desk fainted and fell to the ground. The staff just stared at her and didn't move, my roommate had to yell "Hello, somebody help her." before they actually came over to help. I had one of the worst experiences of my life over there. If you or someone else is mentally ill, take it from me and stay away from Hartgrove Hospital in Chicago.
