: First Nations, Inuit and Metis children, youth and adults were forced to get treatment. While there patients were often subjected to unnecessary and/or experimental treatments. Indigenous patients were forced into care with devastating consequences including mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and sexual abuses to varying degrees. Patients were also held there against their will and would be subject to punitive measures for refusing treatment or for trying to leave before they were officially discharged. The intergenerational trauma that so many Indigenous infants, children, youth and adults experienced at the Indian hospitals should always be recognized, understood and acknowledged. The fallout from the Indian Hospitals persists to this day.
