Security, I like you. I really do. But when I tell you that I can transfer a psych patient without an escort, it means that I can transfer a psych patient without an escort. It means, I've read the medical history. I've read the summary of events leading to the present hospitalization. And I'm telling you that this kid is going through a rough patch, but they're a kid. In fact, they're a downright sweet kid who got dealt a really tough family situation and a little bit of bad genetics.
So please, security, do not start telling me that I need an escort because kids like this might burst out. Do not tell me that all they know is violence.
Do not start telling me that in front of my patient.
Because you have never been on the other side of that. You have no idea how bad he's already hurting.
How do you think I got out of the hellhole I was born in?
There was a psych ER involved.
And do you really want to know what that kid told the doctors?
"I just want to help people."
