A nightmare experience (apology)- Willow Court ABC 7:30 report

If and when the video is uploaded on the ABC website I will upload it here.

Dannii Lane spent a year in the Royal Derwent in the late 1960s.

Heavily sedated and often locked in seclusion, the experience still haunts her.

“I can still remember the screams, the smell of stale urine, the smell of disinfectant trying to cover the smell of urine,” she said.

“And I remember seeing women chained to the furniture, like dogs. It wasn’t a nice experience.

“I was sexually abused by one of the male attendants.

“You were never safe, you were actually safer outside the asylum than you were in, it was one of the ironies.”
