I do. Every time. They don’t ask about that on a general medical ward
what does forensic mean?
Yep. Every time I’ve been they ask.
yes they ask me that…
Plus did your ward have security cameras?
No they didn’t. It was my first and only time admitted to a brand new hospital though.
Never. But when I first got admitted I thought I was guilty of attempted murder. My wife nearly drank herself to death and I was her enabler. My mother in law and my sister in law drilled this into my head. She nearly died and they blamed me.
They messed with my head. I told this to my doctor and he told me I couldn’t be charged with that. But they kept saying over the loudspeaker any one who wanted to confess to a crime the police were there and to come into the Day room.
I was in the military and out of the hospital and I walked into a Generals office and demanded a courts martial. He said “For what?” I didn’t say anything and just walked out. Took a lot of nerve to walk in there though.
They all had cameras though. Lots of them. Some you couldn’t see. There was a camera by where I slept but I didn’t see one in the bathroom so I went in there and was going to stab myself in the juggler with a pen. They rushed in and stopped me. They took my pen away. I never got another one. I didn’t talk much so they gave me a pen and a pad of paper and told me to keep a journal to share with my doctor. I never wrote one word.
Man I don’t miss any of that stuff. So glad I am not in that place anymore.
I have no criminal history. I was on the closed ward for a while during my last spell in hospital . It was fairly strict but much fairer than the ward I was previously on. I was on there after an altercation with another patient who had been tormenting me . That closed ward included people who had been transferred there from prison . Ironically I was allowed to leave hospital from that ward.
The first hospital I was in.
They always ask if I have a criminal history or any outstanding warrants/legal problems. But I have no past or current history so it never goes anywhere.
They ask me about criminal history and if I have any debtors after me or been declared insolvent
I have a few for drunk and disorderly and criminal damage from punching a pub widow.
When I first got known to services I don’t think I was asked, although they did have my forensic records not long afterwords, in the U.K. if you are acting bizarrely/mentally unwell the police have powers to detain you on a section 136 and take you to a place of safety to been seen by a approved mental health social worker (AMMP) These 136s remain on your forensic files as well as if you’ve absconded from hospital. I have loads of 136’s on my file…
No, never. But they do sometimes ask if I’m prone to violent outbursts
