Description

A University of Minnesota hospital insider comes forward with secret recordings which reveal a "culture of fear" and a "research at all costs" attitude in which the well being of extremely vulnerable psychiatric patients takes a back seat to having them participate in drug trials. The series includes a profile of one patient who's own medical records provide compelling evidence he was coerced into taking an experimental drug that nearly drove him to commit suicide. Another report probes the haunting case of a UM psychiatrist who diagnosed a teenager with a mental illness and determined he needed medication to reduce the threat of violent behaviors. But the doctor did not disclose his findings to the boy's family. Weeks later the boy, who was still un-medicated, went on a killing spree.
