My mother is in a nursing home and the nurse said she would not go to bed or to sleep and would not listen to her she locked her in her room and she would not stop screaming so she gave her a "pill or medication" they refer to as Halo, but she either wouldn't or couldn't tell me what it was for or what it would do...what is it? I've since reported the nurse for her behavior!

I believe the other posters are correct.

Haloperidol, sold under the brand name Halo is a typical antipsychotic, it is pretty potent and very effective at treating these types of problems.

You can learn more about it here:

Are there any other questions or comments?

Haldol or haloperidol, commonly used for treating psychiatric disorders. Seems kinda harsh but it works, keeps people with psychiatric disorders from hurting themselves and others. Thats my guess and I hope that helps.

I believe she as referring to Haldol- "hALO"....I put link below my message so you can check it out.....sometimes it is injected when patient is non- compliant, or orally if that works.
It merely calms her down....she needed the help of a med for this......you should keep an eye on this matter though and make sure they use this only as needed, in my opinion. Depending on dose amount, daily intake really creates a zombie....it builds up.....tell them you only want this when she is a danger to herself---not just because they are "busy" and want to do other things.
This is a very strong medication and if she is frail, it will really take a toll on her.....and on you!
I am so glad you talk to the nurses there....and that you just "trust" treatment there..do not be naïve...be present and make sure they know that you "pay attention".....Hard time for everyone, a situation like this.....
but defiantly it can a good med, when someone needs help to calm down and they are "beyond themselves"....it's very effective and would bring her the peace she needs.
Hope this was helpful
