How to Cure Artists
A SWEDISH art student has been condemned by police and medical staff after she faked a suicide attempt and then attacked a hospital's psychiatric nurses and doctors as part of a "play"....
The charade led to David Eberhard, the chief psychiatric doctor at St Goran's, lashing out at Odell for using up scarce resources and staff time at the already crowded hospital.
"She and the head of her school ought to cut their hair and get a real job," he said."It's just pathetic – paint a picture instead. But she's welcome to come back so I can give her a shot of Haloperidol, and then we'll see how much fun she has. That would make a great installation."
Haloperidol is an anti- psychotic drug that can have serious side-effects in some patients.
I like the sound of him, maybe we could send some of our "artists" over to Sweden to be treated as well.
