Clarkson

 

            The Clarkson Secure Care facility is located some distance south of Caelo along Coast Road. It is set overlooking Resolute Bay and accommodates several hundred patients in various states of mental and physical debilitation. The facility is funded by the government and maintains an around-the-clock staff of nurses and orderlies, with an on-call doctor.

           The facility is on permanent lockdown. Entrance is strictly regulated and all visitors must sign in before they are given access. Patients are only allowed outside when accompanied by a family member or by staff.

            Like many operations (both public and private), Clarkson suffers from chronic understaffing and a lack of funds. As a result, there have been many minor incidents at the facility that have aroused concern over the safety of the patients. Efforts to address these issues are ongoing, though as yet little has been done.
