Another breach of duty was not getting the CT scan down in an appropriate amount of time. The physician had a high index of suspicion that the patient was bleeding internally, yet the CT was not completed until the following morning. Lastly, the patient admitted to a substance abuse problem, yet a drug screen was not ordered. If it had been, they would have seen there were no opiates in his system and he was positive for alcohol and benzodiazepines. The fact the patient died from internal bleeding shows there were damages.

The law should prevent the dangerous behavior that could be a result of an individual rather than requiring the individual to become dangerous in order to receive help.

As an ancient strategy to let out the illness in Mozart’s boyd his doctor Dr. Closset bled him then ordered a cold compresses be placed on his head but shortly made him go into shock. The he remained in this coma until he passed. At the end he was, “pouting his cheeks to breathe, which we can assume that Mozart was in acute respiratory distress, probably due to acute pulmonary edema”. Slowly the illness began to take a worst turn for Mozart and ended up passing away. Dr. Zegers, an ophthalmologist at the University of Amsterdam, said that many of the descriptions of all the symptoms can never be clarified especially since most of them have similar characteristics.

This drug was followed by other drugs. There was also a lack of funding and the emergence of community based programs that played a part in the closing of PSH (Bittersweet).

What started off as a place to send your loved ones so that they could get the very best care, ended up being shut down because the care was not up to standards associated with mental healthcare at the time.
Due to Robert Kennedy being in town on the day that Marilyn died, suspicions arose that after one of Marilyn and Robert’s affair happened that night, Marilyn overdosed and was rushed to the hospital. In the ambulance ride, Marilyn passed away and Robert Kennedy took her back to her home and proceeded to cover it up as a suicide in order to hide the affair. In other words, “Summers claims Monroe accidentally OD’d, but died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital, so her body was returned to her home where Lawford, Kennedy, and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover staged her death as a suicide”
In 1954, Federal Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new partner, Chuck Aule, from Seattle travel to Shutter Island in Boston to investigate a disappearance of a patient there, Rachel Solando. The female patient was admitted to the institution after drowning her three children for no apparent reason. She suffers from delusions that her children are still alive and she is simply away on vacation. His ulterior motive for accepting this assignment is because he believes Andrew Laeddis is imprisoned in the C-Ward on the island, which is reserved for the most dangerous criminals, and wants to avenge his wife’s death.

The authors believe it isn’t so, without the patient’s consent or knowledge they are injected with sedatives before they die. Depending on the situation, the family members of the victim may have agreed to the injection to help their relative live a painless moment before they pass. However, with PAS, the patient is in control of their life from the beginning to the very end. PAS allows the patient to ask their doctor to give them drugs to end their pain once in for all.
