The Hospital of Teeth

I have been to this psychiatric hospital more times than I can remember. I will be breaking down this old girl into different albums to prevent system overload, lol. This hospital had a history of removing patients teeth as a cure for insanity. If the patient wasn’t sane after the teeth were gone, they moved on to ovaries and testes, then on to the prostate until there was little left to remove. Nearly all the patients under this treatment died, but no longer insane. Cure rate data was drastically skewed. Even after Doc Cotton left the hospital, tooth pulling continued until the early 60’s.
