University of Rostock, Heidelberg, Germany: Psychiatric Treatment in a psychiatric hospital in Germany today- State of the Art or memories of a horrible past with negligance and disputable methods? Patient sent to Death in helpless situation.
The Killing of Psychiatric Patients in Nazi-Germany between 1939 – 1945

“Between 1939 and 1945 180.000 psychiatric patients were killed in Nazi-Germany.”

This is published today:  

"FOCUS: In this commemoration at the congress of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Psychiatrie, Psychotherapie und Nervenheilkunde (German Association of Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Neurology) you are about to offer an apology for the crimes committed by psychiatry during the period of the National Socialism. Why hasn’t this long been done?"

But this is the astonishing and shocking reality in German psychiatry today:

Germany 2012: World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics , October 14-18th, 2012 Hamburg Germany

   Peter Falkai, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Göttingen,President DGPPN

Whenever there is a violation against human rights anywhere in the world, you can be dead certain that this will be published in Germany.

Offensichtlich ist, dass es Rechtsstaatlichkeit für psychisch Kranke nicht gibt und sich niemand dem grundgesetzlichen Auftrag für diese Mitbürger verpflichtet fühlt. " (see the German text at the end of this page)

In contrast, mentally ill patients seem to be of absolutely no interest in Germany - for nobody.

It can be assumed that in some cases their rights are expired as soon as they are in psychiatric care and their rights suddenly cease to be in force when the patients are institutionalised.

To keep a career spotless seems to be much more important for legal authorities in Germany than following basic laws in the interest of helpless in-patients.

Psychiatric Treatment or Psychiatric Abuse : "IT WAS A BRILLIANT CURE BUT WE'VE LOST THE PATIENT!"

“Psychiatry’s bible, the DSM, is doing more harm than good”

Berthold Brecht once said: There are many ways to kill a human being.”

One of the ways, pointed out by Brecht, is to force him to commit suicide.

Most psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal reactions, sometimes including life-threatening emotional and physical withdrawal problems. 

In short, it is not only dangerous to start taking psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. 

Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision. Methods for safely withdrawing from psychiatric drugs are discussed in Dr. Breggin's books, Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry: Drugs, Electroshock and the Psychopharmaceutical Complex (New York: Springer Publishing Company, 2008) and Medication Madness: The Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Crime (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2008).”

"The authorities responsible for law enforcement and prosecution in Germany often close both eyes and refuse to take action against psychiatrists concerning coercion, physical injury and deprivation of liberty."

March 12, 2013: Left Hanging: Suicide in Bridgend

"The Figures

In the England and Wales there are roughly 5000 suicides in roughly 60 million people per year. This would until recently have led to around 2000 hangings per year, 34 hangings per million people per year, 3.5 per 100,000 people per year.

Bridgend in South Wales has a population of 40,000. The greater Bridgend area has a population of 130,000. There should be 18 hangings per 100,000 people over a 5 year period, 24 per 130,000 per year.

In recent years however in both the US and UK there has been a rise in the number of hangings so that this mode of death now accounts for 50% of cases. If this applies in the Bridgend area, we might expect 28 hangings per 130,000 over a 5 year period, roughly 6 per year.

There were in fact 79 hangings in Bridgend between January 2007 and February 2012. The hangings continue unabated, so the true figure may be in the 90s. This means there have been 16 per year – an excess of 10 or more hangings per year.

Vanishing Suicides

There have likely been a lot more self-destructions than this in Bridgend. Coroners have considerable discretion and recently a great deal of encouragement to use narrative, open or death by misadventure verdicts rather than to record a verdict of suicide. To record a suicide verdict they should be satisfied that the person intended to kill themselves. One of the primary indicators of intent is a suicide note. In the Bridgend cases, there have been few suicide notes. This has made it easy for coroners to manage perceptions of what might be going on.

Having a narrative or open verdict can be extremely important for families. I have written reports in over 20 inquests arguing that it would be appropriate to return a narrative rather than a suicide verdict, in the case of people whose suicide has been triggered by an antidepressant.

But this use of narrative verdicts has produced a situation where suicide figures are close to worthless. The British suicide rate is comprised of cases recorded as suicides along with a proportion of narrative, open or other verdicts, with the proportion chosen down to bureaucratic whim. We do not have a self-destruction rate and absolutely no idea as to how many verdicts, either suicide or narrative, are linked to antidepressant or other drug intake.

A website antidepaware was recently set up to track deaths by suicide or misadventure or related that are related to antidepressants. It has logged over 1600 UK suicides involving antidepressants of which 43% were recorded as suicides by the coroner, 26% as narrative verdicts, 19% as open verdicts, 5% as death by misadventure and 7% as accidental."

The comment of a reader from England on these pages:

"the way you are working is correct but the other side leaves no stone unturned to show you how much power they have and even their lack of compassionate and dempcratic thinking doesn't appear to embarrass them. Truly horrible people."

This is a translation out of a text, a patient of psychiatry with a lot of experience posted in November 2009:

“For a long time I’ve been thinking about the experiences I made at the time I needed psychiatric care and what I experienced wasn’t only negative. In fact I had the impression that most of the people I met there really wanted to help me overcome my problems.

Nevertheless I recognized problems that made me feel quite nauseated and in my opinion a high percentage of care in mental hospitals isn’t necessarily performed in the real interests of the patients due to other considerations.

Patients are often taken into care to protect the public from being confronted with the problems of mental difficulties.

To protect the public from any danger related to people who are mentally unstable.

To get the mentally ill back into employment as soon as possible, disregarding possible complications. In some cases highly qualified workers are forced to accept employment that is well below their qualifications, often with arguments that bear no relation to the problem.

To keep the costs caused by mental disorders as low as possible for the general public. How these costs are minimized is immaterial and the experts often turn to the use of medication as means of reducing symptoms and tranquillizing the patients.

In my opinion the present goal of psychiatry isn’t to cure the patient but is aimed at merely  reducing the symptoms to avoid social and economic costs to society as a whole. It doesn’t matter to experts working in mental care whether the patient puts on weight or loses their teeth, the primary goal is that the patient is tranquillised and doesn’t cause any bother. The patient can then vegetate until time takes its toll.

Suicide is never an accident but should be seen as a possibility of solving problems. It’s only an accident when it is seen as such and when the statistics state that 15% of schizophrenic patients die at some time from suicide then that is a lot of people.

They only call it an accident when suicide is talked about. When people hear or read about it, there is a concerned silentness. Not more. But it happens, really often.

We patients are just objects which cause costs. I’m absolutely convinced that the purpose of mental health care isn’t to cure the patients but to reduce these costs. And the privatisation of hospitals in Lower Saxony fully support my conviction.

Additionally it shouldn’t be forgotten that psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists all want a piece of the cake, not to mention the huge pharmaceutical industry that wants its share as well.

My 100% conclusion is that, the care of patients isn’t the primary goal of psychiatry.”

Published in England, Thread: Death in Rostock (a German Experience)

http://www.schizophrenia.com:8080/jiveforums/thread.jspa?messageID=325263

"The last few years I’ve spent a lot of my time looking through the internet to find out why the therapists could act in such a careless manner and about a year ago I came across another similar case written by a Mr. Hageemeister, where through negligence on the part of those responsible a young man died through suicide. This is a particularly tragic case because Mr. Hagemeister and his former British wife lost their daughter at a very young age due to the incompetence of medical staff.

Since the time of Marios death his father has been investigating the case and has come across a web of intrigue, not only involving the hospital itself but the office of the public prosecutor. Furthermore he has uncovered the way in which members of the DGPPN support each other, regardless of whether they are morally right or wrong."

This text doesn`t describe the situation in Germany more than seventy years ago, no, it describes what happens today in Germany and what is being covered up again, just like in the past.

The situation in a psychiatric hospital in Germany today:

42.286 patients died in german psychiatric clinics between 1991 and 2003, 78 of them were children.

This was/is the last statisic that can be found, nothing newer is published any more. There will be reasons.

Psychiatric treatment in Germany is strongly under the influence of a society, called DGPPN.

There is a very strong relationship between them and the the pharma-industry, too, see http://www.aerztepfusch-psychiatrie.de/ and http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/print/d-78522323.html

The postgraduate professional education in the field of psychiatric treatment in Germany is also more or less in their hands.

Systematically expert witnesses, public persecutors and even the state Ministry of Justice all did and still do their best to cover up the circumstances which led to the death of my son in a clinic in Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, a federal state which lies in the north of Germany.

My son wasn’t the only patient to die at the same clinic..

Whenever there is a violation of human rights anywhere in the world you can be sure that a story about it will be published by the German media, but strangely, human-rights violations affecting mentally ill patients in Germany don’t appear to arouse much interest either from German politicians or any branches of the media in this country.

Benefit risk madness: antipsychotics and suicide November 2, 2012

My son, Mario Hagemeister, died as a private patient in the “care” of Dr. Sabine C. Herpertz Dept. of General Psychiatry University of Heidelberg.

What happened there in Rostock in 2005 is much more than just a fatal error, even more than willful breaches of duty:

It seems to be unbelievable, but it is true: They kept my son for half a year in the closed section of the psychiatric clinic in Rostock under "intensive care", filled him up to the teeth with medicin, well known to cause suicidal ideas, then, after he had been sexually abused, they sent him out in a completelsy helpless condition.

He committed suicde. He jumped from the top floor of this hotel:

http://www.todinrostock.de/index.6.jpg

The day after his death, although he had been locked in for half a year, an assistant doctor, who had just seen him for one or two days, declared him one day after his death, post mortem, completely healthy.

This is, how doctors in charge present themselves on the internet in these days:

         "we can do everything, except science"

"wir können alles, außer wissenschaft"

At the same time in Rostock, their patients:

 

On March 2nd, 2004 Thomas J. set fire to himself in Rostock.

 

At the beginning of 2005 the patient Olaf L. jumped from the 7th floor of a house in Rostock - Evershagen.

   

 On January 8th, 2006  Mario Hagemeister jumped from the top of the Hotel Neptun .

 

 

 

In January 2008 Roman H. in Rostock hung himself. As in the case of Mario he was also a private patient of Prof. Herpertz.

 

On May 25th, 2008 Reinhard Z. jumped from a church in Rostock. He was a private patient, too.

 

They were all patients of  this pychiatric clinic in Rostock.

 

That was the fate of the patients but it seems Prof. Dr. Herpetz and her team had other more entertaining interests in their heads than their patients.

As you see, my son is not the only in-patient who died under the care of  Dr. Sabine Herpertz, professor in psychiatry, chair in Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, and director of the department of General Psychiatry at the University of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, DGPPN, Germany.

In the clinic in Rostock for mental health Prof. Dr. Sabine Herpertz was responsible for my son.

He was her private patient there. She is also one of the chief executives of this organisation, called DGPPN.

Prof. Dr. Sabine C. Herpertz is now head of the General Psychiatry University of Heidelberg.

All this happened in 2005/06 in the Department of the General Psychiatry at the University of Rostock where she was responsible before she went to Heidelberg.

Her former senior doctor, Dr. Habermeyer, DGPPN, also left Rostock, he moved to Zurich, Switzerland.

If you have a close look at the medical record of my son, published on the internet, you will find a lot of manipulations in the documents.

Prof. Dr. Herpertz and the first two expert witnesses appointed by the public persecuters in Rostock are very good mates with many books published together and have also many other very close relationships with the clinic and the former responsible senior consultant, Prof. Dr. Sabine Herpertz.

The original text (abstract on the right side) can be found by opening this link:

 

In this picture you can see Prof. Dr. Herpertz and Prof Dr. Fryberger together in a conference of their society, the DGPPN in Berlin in November. The second fellow member and expert witness in this case, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Wolfersdorf, DGPPN, was also there.

Prof Dr. Freyberger, DGPPN, also declared in his written report about this case that he had no financial relationship to a drugmaker, see "footnotes":

Not even two months after the death of her private patient Prof. Dr. Herpertz, in the meantime in Heidelberg, and Prof. Dr. Freyberger celebrate happily together at a birthday party in Rostock.

To celebrate together seems to have some kind of tradition: Here is one of many another birthday parties sponsered by pharma industry.

    

25.2.2006, at the party in Rostock - most probably the result of Mr. Freiberger´s statement in this case was talked about and agreed upon - good friends in the past - good friends in the future. Just like the second "expert witness", he also fits completely into this picture.

Im November 2009, they are together, a team, like usual, at the DGPPN-Kongress in Berlin.

DGPPN Kongress 2005, this link presents the complete program: They are all here, leading members of the DGPPN,

 

Prof. Dr. Herpertz, Dr. Habermeyer,   Prof. Dr. FreybergerProf. Dr. Dr. h.c. Wolfersdorf Prof. Dr. Leygraf.

All this is no reason for the public prosecuters in Rostock to doubt these proved and very close relationships at all. They all work together and they do their best to cover up and to hide what had really happened.

                                                            

These professors are leading members of the DGPPN, a society of psychiatrists who seem to have very close relationships not only to drugmakers.

The first of the following pictures shows my son two weeks before he became a patient in the clinic in Rostock. The second picture shows him on October 2nd,2005, the day after the doctors of the clinic had let him leave the hospital alone, under the influence of drugs in a completely helpless situation.

Nobody outside was even informed.

The day after his death, Prof. Dr. Herpertz in Rostock, responsible for her private patient, did not even know that had been dead already for a day.

All this is proved, even by a witness under oath.

More statements of other witnesses are published on the first side of my German documentation.

These witnesses find absolutely no attention by the German authorities to this very day. They carry on as if they don`t exist. They seemingly do their best not to reveal any faults, they even do their best to cover them up.

Even the medical record shows that he was in a terrible state of mind in the morning of the day they let him go on his own.

There you find the words: “He seemed to be confused, helpless and perplexed”

Until the day before he had been under compulsory admission since the beginning of his treatment and this was not terminated.

It was a Saturday morning, Prof. Dr. Sabine Herpertz was on holiday, like many others, too, and nobody else was there to examine him and they just let him go.

It was a long weekend !

Shortly after they had let him out for the first time after nearly three months, in this completely helpless condition, he was sexually abused by an old man.

From that day on he did not want to live any more.  This can be seen as a consequence of neglect.

During these days the head doctor, Prof. Dr. Sabine Herpertz, had many appointments, far away from the clinic in Rostock.

She was simply not there. She was far away, busy, planning and preparing her personal career in the south of Germany.

Her private patient was left behind in Rostock, neglected and fixated witout legal permission.

16. - 17.9.05 2005. meeting in Schloss Saarbrücken with speeches on september 16th, for that very day a signature of the head doctor can be found in the documents pretending that a personal treatment had happened in Rostock the same time she was in reality far away in Saarbrücken.

In her "documentation of her conversations with her private patient" you find this remark, surely this is, no way, the documentation of a conversation with a private patient:

In fact, on this day she is in Saarbrücken, about 850 kilometres away from Rostock and her private patient. Even so, from this distance, she can "elicit" a diagnosis and even sign to be present for a treatment for 30 minutes in Rostock at the same time.

24. - 28. 9.05 General meeting of the Görres-Gesellschaft

28.9. - 3.10.05 head doctor on holiday, and after that

5.- 8.10.2005 in München, Heidelberg und Bremen.

13. - 15.10.05 in Luxemburg

A few days after being abused, the patient said he wanted to jump from a high building with the intention not to feel anything anymore.

13.10.„möchte sich am liebsten von einem Hochhaus stürzen und nichts mehr merken“

 

                                                                       

 

Instead of psychotherapy and understanding treatment after that horrible experience, he was fixated on arms, legs and body (see picture two) for five days. During this time the head doctor was first on holiday and then on tour through the south of Germany.

They left him alone in a room for five days without  permission from a judge, normally mandated by German law. There were no talks. He was kept in isolation and drugged.

The third picture shows him two weeks before he died. It was taken in a Greek restaurant in Rostock.

You can see that he was in a completely neglected state at that time.

He said “Nice that you came, although you are not real” to me, his father, and to our doctor from our hometown, who was also there. This happened December 27th, 2006.

Picture number three was taken at that time.

Mario lived completely in a fantasy world similar to the film “Matrix” that was very popular in those days.

Two weeks later, he jumped like Neo in the film Matrix from an eighteen story high hotel at the East Sea, Hotel Neptun.

Another video also had an enormous influence on him: Taliban Bodies - Special Edition 

In the morning of that day, January 8th 2006, they had let him go out on his own, alone, again nobody outside was informed.

Four days before his death, as can be seen in his medical record, it was difficult for him to make out what was real and what was not !

The night before his death he had spoken for a long time on the telephone with two people, one of them was a doctor herself.

Both of them testified later that Mario was completely psycotic and very suicidal that night.

http://www.todinrostock.de/julia.jpg and http://www.todinrostock.de/eid.pdf

In his imagination and under the influence of the given medication, he saw himself surrounded by aliens.

"The individual versus DIE DA OBEN" (THOSE UP THERE) These drawings were made by the patient on one of these days inside the clinic. The signs around the heads are supposed to be alien language!

Both of these people were under the impression that he was in the closed section of the hospital and being well looked after, therefore in a safe situation.

It is a fact that: He was twice encouraged to leave the clinic all on his own. 

This placed him in a completely helpless condition.

They left him alone in a very unstable and  absolutely confused state of mind whilst under the influence of very strong medication.

The witnesses and the medical record of my son, document this fact clearly and without doubt.

The first time they let him out, it ended in disaster, he was abused by a sexual predator who had found him  in the street in a confused state shortly after he had left the hospital.

After which he was readmitted and was kept in restraints. Not even his parents were kept informed of the situation.

Even deliquents receive a better treatment in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Not even a treatment that is supplied for delinquents and criminals, was put into practice for this patient. They sent him out, alone into his death, one of the "expert wittnesses" said later that this is done in Germany today because of financial reasons.

Just imagine: He left the closed section of the clinic. Minutes later he sat in a park in the rain on a bench, all alone not knowing what to do and where to go, due to the influence of the drugs he had been administered.

That is how he fell into the hands of the man who abused him.

The second time in January 2006, knowing what had happened the first time, the doctors responsible for their patient, let him go again in a similar helpless condition. This time he had absolutely no chance to survive. 

Did they take this risk knowingly?

On January 9th 2006, Dr. Kumbier, an assistant doctor, (not his doctor) not at all responsible for the private patient, writes a unique document.

In this he describes, (written the day after his death, not the day of his death) that the patient was in excellent health and of sound mind.

He states that the patient was safe to leave the hospital.

Why does he state this post mortem and why him?

He had nothing to do with the private patient of the professor so why would he fill out this notice and not the professor? 

And another strange thing in this document right at the end he writes: “ 5.1.05 one-to-one conversation with Mrs. Prof. Herpertz (see report)”

It would appear these documents were produced in a hurry, it is unfortunate for them that in their rush to cover up their mistakes they made several mistakes:

For a start, he dated the document "January 2005", surely he meant the year 2006.

He also did not take into account that the document he refers to in this report, that of his senior consultant , was actually written on the 10th. (How is it possible to refer to a document written in the future!)

She wrote this report the following day, on the 10th!

The document also refers to the week January 3rd-6th - a week with only four days, strange too!

In the case record it also states that Dr. Kumbier had met this patient for the first time on January 4th or 5th!

These are just some of the many examples of how they tried to manipulate the clinical record of this patient.

There was also absolutely no suicide prevention in the psychiatric hospital in Rostock.

“It is currently impossible to distinguish between patients with depression who will make a suicide attempt and those who will not.

Prevention, therefore, must be based on the assumption that any patient with more than mild symptoms of depression is at risk of suicide, and can only be effective if it is applicable to all patients with moderate to severe depression.

A treatment strategy that differentiated between regressive and progressive therapeutic measures was developed for patients admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Regressive, as opposed to progressive, treatment meant that the patient was temporarily relieved of virtually all responsibilities for self and others. 

Progressive measures were strictly avoided for all patients with symptoms of depression, regardless of the primary diagnosis.

This strategy was tested on 5,149 inpatients and day patients over a period of 6.25 years and compared with 6,891 patients over the 15.75 years prior to this period. The suicide rate was 97 (per 100,000 admissions) compared with 319 in the previous period. 

The treatment method appears to be able to reduce the suicide rate. Although this result was achieved with hospital patients, it suggests that a regressive treatment method could be promising if developed for outpatient treatment as well.”

The clinical record of the patient is really more than full of examples like this one. On my German pages they are all published.

I lost my son due to bad treatment and wrong diagnoses, done by careless and dishonest doctors.

Many years ago I had already lost my daughter Marleen, Mario`s sister. 

Her mother was given a wrong injection during the birth of our first child. 

When Marleen was born, she was mentally and physically completely disabled, due to a lack of oxygen during her birth. She had a terribly painful life and died at the age of eight.

It was also a very cruel death.

This link opens a picture. There you can see my father holding my disabled daughter and my first wife, the mother of the two children who are both dead now.

This is an example of what was published on television in Germany in those days.

"The loss of a child is experienced as so significant that parents think a piece of them died . It is a pain that never ends."

This is how I feel. What is left is the grave of my children  and my memories!

 

 

Mario: Marleen, shorty before her death:

Court proceedings up to the highest German court, the BGH, took about eight years, too. We won the case and our daughter died four weeks later.

In those days we had the feeling that justice was very slow, but justice was still there. Today we have the impression that justice is not there any more and that lobbyism rules this country.

I published this story on the internet in the hope that people all over the world can see what is happening in Germany again. 

People supposedly under the protection of those institutions that should normally protect the public now protect each other and not the people who they are supposed to protect.

In this case the institutionalisation of my son into their care was the equivelant of giving him a death sentence.

Hopefully a journalist from another country will see and realise the unjustice in this tragic and cruel setup and will help to prevent this from being swept under the carpet and forgotten.

The more you go into details, the more  willful breaches of duty you will find.

This story has even been discussed in newspapers in Austria.

In Germany it is not even possible to publish a  payed small advertisement referring to my page on the Internet.

October 8th, found on the internet:

The EPOCH TIMES, Sunday, August 08, 2010: Pharma Influence on the American Psychiatric Association

“But where take-one signs once existed, signs now warned health care providers they might be governed by no gift policies.

The next big thing was not a new drug but adjunctive therapy, also known as adding existing drugs to existing drugs because they don’t work. Antipsychotics are also being “enhanced” by adding drugs to offset weight gain and lethargic side effects.

No wonder panelists at a forum called “Is a Game Changing Psychotropic Too Much to Expect?” assailed pharma for issuing “me too” drugs and “seat of the pants” drug combinations, calling the industry nothing but a “marketing organization.”

The warning also says that patients of all ages taking antidepressants should be watched closely, especially during the first few weeks of treatment. 

Possible side effects to look for are depression that gets worse, suicidal thinking or behavior, or any unusual changes in behavior such as trouble sleeping, agitation, or withdrawal from normal social situations. Families and caregivers should report any changes to the doctor.

To find the latest information visit the FDA website.”

They did not care for their in-patient, but they cared for themselves and each other.

There is an article on the internet in German, called: The circus of the soul healers."

Another article on the internet in German describes the situation for patients with mental illnesses clearly:

Nobody feels responsible for these members of society. These patients find no protection in Germany, not even by German law.

„Offensichtlich ist, dass es Rechtsstaatlichkeit für psychisch Kranke nicht gibt und sich niemand dem grundgesetzlichen Auftrag für diese Mitbürger verpflichtet fühlt.

Anstatt eine Untersuchung vorzunehmen, ist man gegen uns vorgegangen. Die Verbrechen in der Psychiatrischen Klinik Alzey sind nur deshalb möglich, weil in Deutschland die psychiatrische Praxis allgemein völlig unkontrolliert ist und keine Öffentlichkeit hat. Weder die Politik noch die Wissenschaft, die Justiz oder die Medien nehmen die Missstände im Bereich Psychiatrie zur Kenntnis. Nur hin und wieder werden einzelne Psychiatrie-Opfer und einzelne unfähige oder kriminelle Ärzte und Therapeuten bekannt. In all diesen Fällen wurden jahrelang praktizierte Verbrechen eines Tages rein zufällig entdeckt - was auf eine hohe Dunkelziffer hinweist.“

"Death in Rostock (a German Experience)
Posted: Jul 26, 2011 9:48 PM

 

 

Death in Rostock (a German Experience)

Although originally from the UK I’ve lived in Germany for over 30 years, my wife is German and we have two grown-up sons. Unfortunately in 2006 my wife had a very severe depression and had to be treated at a hospital here in Germany.

My wife is now almost back to her former self, but in the first few months of her depression the doctors made several very stupid mistakes that were almost fatal. i.e. she needlessly came close to suicide several times in the first few months.

It was traumatic for the whole family and to add insult to injury, the responsible persons have since that time always insisted that they acted correctly, although the results clearly prove that the decisions were incorrect. Unfortunately there is no such thing as an independent ombudsman here in such cases and therefore the perpetrators are also the judges in any dispute and this naturally leads to resentment on the part of the injured parties.

The last few years I’ve spent a lot of my time looking through the internet to find out why the therapists could act in such a careless manner and about a year ago I came across another similar case written by a Mr. Hageemeister, where through negligence on the part of those responsible a young man died through suicide. This is a particularly tragic case because Mr. Hagemeister and his former British wife lost their daughter at a very young age due to the incompetence of medical staff.

Here is a link to the English page on his homepage site.

Since the time of Marios death his father has been investigating the case and has come across a web of intrigue, not only involving the hospital itself but the office of the public prosecutor. Furthermore he has uncovered the way in which members of the DGPPN support each other, regardless of whether they are morally right or wrong.

You can read about the DGPPN on their English site which can be found here,

I assume this could be considered as the German equivalent of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Mr Hagemeister's fight is very much one-sided in that the hospital and the DGPPN have much more influence and use their influence, but you can support him by simply sending him an email in English or German wishing him success in the forthcoming court case. I believe this court case isn't only important for him but equally important for other patients and their families in Germany including myself. In the name of Mr Hagemeister I’d like to thank you in advance for your support."

 

These are the reasons why I published all this on the Internet, in English, and in Russian, too. Another German page on the Internet is also full of further information.
