          One of her patients was transferred from the locked unit to the medical floor to be treated for a non-psychiatric issue, while under psychiatric commitment, and was supposed to be on one-to-one observation. The "observer" went on break, and the patient killed herself.
           With a roll of toilet paper. Stuffed it down her own throat until she suffocated. Some people are determined to die.

        ......but the only thing we ever agreed on was that one us was crazy.  We could just never agree which one of us it was.
