In 1959 my grandmother also died at this state owned/run 'hospital'. Whe had been abused by an aide which eventually resulted in her death. She had been diagnosed with arteriosclorosis, however, we have found out since that she suffered from Alzheimers disease as evidenced by the fact that all of her three daughters also eventually got the disease, one of whom is still alive and suffering. When I was 18 and just out of High School I worked there as a secretary for a short while, and can say that I saw it as a minimum/maximum care facility for patients with minor to severe mental impairments. Patients with various stages of mental illness were housed on different floors. I have an Aunt, now in her 80's, who worked there for many years as a physical therapist. What exactly is your question and I will ask her what she thinks.
