You know things are getting out of control, when
1. your formed*, bipolar, off-his-meds overdose patient in Bed 1 takes a powder and goes running out the ambulance entrance door naked while screaming, “I’m going to kill her!”
3. your other little old lady in Bed 5, new-onset atrial fibrillation, demented, C. diff positive, crawls out of the end of the bed and starts wandering the halls leaving a little trail of liquid stool behind her.
* I.e. under a Form 1, meaning (in Ontario) being held involuntarily for psychiatric assessment.
** Third degree AV block. A Very Bad Thing.
