- What are the various stages of "Increasingly Severe insanity" or whatever you'd call it, in asylums. How do their freedoms gradually get taken away?
- If the patient is continuing to rebel and be uncooperative, even continuing violent acts, what steps would be taken?
- Would the patient even be allowed into an asylum, or would he go to a specialized prison?
- Also, at what point would visiting rights no longer be permitted, and how are visits monitored?
I've spent a lot of yahoo searching, and all I keep seeming to find is things on Shutter Island and mental health hospitals nearby. I don't think I know the correct terms to search for. I've been searching things like 'mental asylum uncooperative patients', 'asylum stages' and 'mental health hospitals procedures' and haven't really found anything. :)
EDIT: Ah, this is in the US. Apologies. XD My MC is at such an extreme level of insanity, that I assumed psychiatric help would be given first before he is sent to prison.
