"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" Hospital Re-Opening After Years of Patient Abuse

Posted: November 18th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"One Flew Over the CuckooSubmit Comment
The hospital where "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" was filmed has been rebuilt and will now reopen with hopes of forgetting about all the abuses that went on there.

The 127-year-old Oregon State Hospital had toxic paint, asbestos and a leaky roof, but mostly became known for real abuses that never made it into the 1975 film that ended up winning five Oscars.

Metal bars that protected glass windows are gone, replaced in the new building with modern shatterproof windows. There's no barbed wire or chain-link fencing. And patients in the stabilization ward will have their own rooms, giving them privacy and dignity.

All the changes upgrade a facility that just two years ago was the subject of a scathing report by the US Department of Justice. Federal investigators found mice in rooms, deaths from pneumonia and outbreaks of scabies, along with nearly 400 cases of patient-against-patient assault over one year.

One patient had been in seclusion for a year with no other treatment. Another patient with a condition that causes excessive thirst was left at a water fountain and gained 13 pounds in water weight in one day.

It wasn't until state lawmakers toured the hospital in 2004 and were stunned by a grim discovery: the cremated remains of 3,600 patients locked away and forgotten inside corroding copper canisters.

Well, that's a mood killer for sure. I guess more than one flew over the cuckoo's nest.

"Federal investigators found mice in rooms, deaths from pneumonia and outbreaks of scabies, along with nearly 400 cases of patient-against-patient assault over one year."

Must have been the newly opened Linday Lohan Drug Rehabilitation Wing.

This is not accurate. The photos of the old building however are, it still looks like that. There are several buildings at the state hospital, one of the old buildings has been rebuilt but the bulk of the hospital still looks "run down". The picures that look nice and new are from a brand new $400,000,000 facility that was built behind the old one. They had the grand opening this week but the crazies won't move in until after the first of the year as they are currently training the new staff. They try to make it out like the sick f*cks that live there deserve better but they dont, it is after all The Oregon State Hospital for the Criminaly Insane. housed there have been some of the nastiest sickos ever. Just look up Jerry Brudos who actually committed most of his crimes in a house right accros the street from the hospital.

I'd have mandatory lock up of the doctors involved, it might help them regain some humanity.

K-Lube is right. Those are 2 different buildings. The kind of re-furbishing this article talks about to that old building in those pictures would have been MUCH cheaper to just tear down and start from scratch.

That new building looks nice for the crazies though.

I'm pretty sure I'd go nuts in one of those places!
Ranger writes:

@tt - lol.

If the rest of this article is accurate regarding the going-ons of the old building, what a horrific place! It would seem like plenty turned a blind eye here. Either up the inspection frequency and/or get new inspectors... and I hope to hell SOMEONE(s) from that place (ie: administrators) WENT TO JAIL!

Let's hope someone did pay for what happened there...

If this place was in the UK the Goverment would have sold off the land and it now would be nice luxury apartments for all the immigrants that flock here every day in their 1000's !!

Which is whole other horror story ...

@Trailer
Tell me about it mate they had a place called Richmond Avenue in benfleet for people with severe disabilities which they're closing down due to government cuts, so all the crazy mofos are going to be placed in the southend area in their own flats with limited support its gonna be a blood bath!

Make sure to set the water fountain into a poured reinforced concrete foundation this time. Anchor bolts didn't quite hold it down when the "Chief" decided to rip it out and launch it outta the window. Well deserved escape.
