History

Säters hospital opended in 1912, there were 37 buildings and space for 830 mentally ill patients.

The "permanent/closed pavilion" was created for particularly challenging patients from all over the country (Sweden). There was room for 27 patients who were cared for by 16 nurses. The term "permanent/closed pavilion" meant that it was escape proof, including barred windows and walled exercise yards. In addition, there was increased surveillance.

1980: The Swedish mental hospitals begin to close down. The term "permanent/closed pavilion" is changed to "special section". 1989: Säters permanent pavilion/special section was closed down.

Well, that place looks like it would have been a horrible place to be admitted from the outside.

Nice work, great photos. Looks like someone made a pretend 'blood bath'...
