Psychiatric Treatment Facilities

The Mixing of Vulnerable and Volatile Populations can be a Dangerous Combination

Patients seeking treatment for drug addiction and other psychiatric issues are often vulnerable and volatile. The mixing of such patients in a single treatment facility unfortunately creates the opportunity for volatile patients to prey upon vulnerable patients. As a result, psychiatric treatment facilities have the duty to provide adequate safeguards and security to prevent patient on patient as well as staff on patient sexual abuse. When psychiatric treatment faciities fail to provide adequate security measures and patients are abused, the treatment facilities may be liable.
