Default Question about strip searches

Hi... I was wondering if anyone has been inpatient at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. If so, do they do strip searches? I am thinking about getting ECT and they require you to be inpatient for the first few treatments. Thanks

I can't speak for John Hopkins, but I've been IP 3 times, and have never been stripped searched. The most they've done is gone through my bag, looking for sharps.

Question about strip searches



As some of you may know, my blog is currently off-line due to some problems at my previous site host. I'm working with my web master to rebuild and get back on-line.

I've had staff go through my pockets and my bag but never a strip search and I have been inpatient multiple times. I have also never heard of someone being strip searched within a psychiatric setting.

I don't know about that hospital...


I've been IP about 9-10 times, 9/10 was in another state, where I've never been strip searched...
When I moved to California, the inpatient center did a strip search
