Rachel Netto: My Clinical Experience at Hospital Bahagia, Ulu Kinta

Our clinical instructor guided us on the process on admission and discharging of patients. My colleague and I were also able to see how Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) was done on patients that required them. To our suprise, we could also see the difference in the patient after going through several cycles of ECT especially their behaviour whereby they were calmer and less aggressive.


In addition, we also were able to perform mental health rehabilitation sessions with the patients there. For example, habit training, group therapy and occupational therapy. Patients there were very welcoming and kind to us, they always treated us like one of them (for which I was very grateful for) and cooperated very well when we did activities for them.


Overall, I would say that this was a very memorable and an eye opener experience for me.
