Aw JC, always coming in with those great ideas, what would we do without them!

I am a little confused how that would work. Does the door have an alarm so you all know when someone enters. It would seem more safe to have no door so the patients are visible.  What am I missing?

Yeah, the good old JC needs to keep finding "problems" to perpetuate their continued existence...

Wait...I don't think I'm following this...   are they concerned someone is going to strangle themselves via a rope (or a cord, bedsheet, or other fabric/material) and a chair?

Pretty much. There will always be a #1 cause of death by suicide in a psych unit.

Probably going to need to remove  paper, to prevent suicide by paper cut.

To be honest, when I first saw the "you know who," they reminded me of the Asian bureaucrats in Japan, depicted by countless of Medical dramas. lol

The chief Medical professor would be making their "rounds," and then follows the horde of the loyal lemmings, all in their white coats & suits whispering their love into their ears.

The viewing of a situation will yield a consensual perspective of reality by rationale individuals.

In other words, Daisy, you're not missing a thing.

I've briefed through all the posts and I want to thank you all for your feedback. I thought this situation was ludachrist and you all seem to have a similar take on it.

Yep, death by a thousand cuts, and yes Jednurse, it would hurt.

Whomever that person was that came to do the survey, seems like just added weight in TJC.

Lacks critical thinking.

Lacks common sense.

Lacks the wherewithal in what it will take for management, to consider even one additional staff member in the unit.

I always though I would work as a Walmart greeter for a retirement job. Maybe a job as a door would be better, hmm..

You know, the Walmart greeter idea came up in discussions with other rationale staff members with senses of humor, Daisy.

There's just one problem with it- Walmart greeters are probably not ready to deal with an onslaught of suicidal geriatric patients wielding nooses made out of cord, rope, bed sheet or other fabric/material desiring to attempt to commit self harm or suicide!

And that's what I told my relief: "Be prepared for that onslaught!"

 All hospital material should not be capable of sustaining a weight of more than 5 pounds or sustain a constant pull of more than 5 pounds for more than 60 seconds. 

The OldDuderino (because I'm not into the whole brevity thing) is, truly, remarkable in his way of thinking.

To you, sir, I doff my proverbial hat.
