Just getting ready to go 10-41 this evening and I get a call from my SGT. to head to the hospital to sit with a guy. Looks like I'll be here all night with him.

Long story short, take your meds for your conditions so you don't end up on a vent, sedated with a hose up your **** to pee while a Deputy is bored to tears. Unfortunately you can't fix stupid.

I've spent many nights doing just this. Thankfully, the nurses here take good care of us, and make sure they come by and give us coffee. They also gave me the wireless password so I can surf around on my droid.

Good times.

He keeps trying to jump up in his sedated state. I just about broke his wrist trying to keep him under control while nurses made their way in. They don't want to restrain him because they don't want to document it...sheezzz...I have to now lol.

I'm assuming your version of 10-41 means something different than our use which is "Possible Computer Match Now Confirmed." You can use english here since 10 code usage varies quite a bit. :whistling:

Pretty sure he meant he was about to go in service, on duty, or whatever variation works.

Easy brother. That's what we're all for when it is needed. :wavey:

As to inmates: in custody of any level is at least attached to something, like a bed. If the person is not yet given a custody level, as far as I am concerned that person is the same as max custody and will be treated as such concerning security, in a diplomatic fashion concerning anything else.

We have our tools, including the company cell phone; restraint equipment, and weapons as necessary. Officially we do not have our own devices on duty.

Hmm...sitting in an environmentally controlled comfortable hospital, watching Netflix on my 10 inch tablet, enjoying the scenery (lots of cute nurses)...or, taking an accident report (in the 40 rain) from some retard who insists "they came out of nowhere", when she was really texting and putting on makeup AT THE SAME TIME, while attempting to drive.


Hard choice, that.

I hate sitting in the hospital. It is deep enough in the building that cell phones don't work. Feels like 12 hours go buy and you look, only 2.

Haha, just funnin' guys! :supergrin:


Babysitting detail is indeed a nice break every now and then. Got old pretty fast, however, considering there was no wireless and a serious lack of hot nurses at the hospital on my old beat. :crying:

:rofl:

We do 3-day 12-hour shifts in hospitals and rehab centers in a major city in NV. Lots of cute nurses to make the time go by and several excellent all-you-can-eat sushi joints to finish off the day. It's a welcome break from the constant dealing with scumbags (inmates and/or a few staff). The inmate under your supervision is usually on their best behavior.

All you can eat sushi? Interesting. I would settle for some good ol Korean food; Mexican; Russian; German. OK I'm a gourmand.

The whiny little college kids in my town have learned if you scream for medical attention you'll most likely sit in the ER and not jail.

I have spent a few nights waiting in the ER here recently. Oh well, blood always goes about .02 higher than breath:supergrin: so it rarely helps their case.

Don't forget, always having a crapper close by at the hospital, versus working a wreck in the rain, and having to crap like a racehorse. :supergrin:

Lot of truth there. Maybe three or four years ago one of the county reserve deputies here lost a prisoner (let the prisoner get between him and the door and the guy blocked him in by pushing the bed). Guy escaped, stole a truck from hosptial grounds, and ended up making it to Missouri (2+ hours) before he was located, pursued, and shot and killed by LE down there.

Too many times I have seen guys hurt, and jammed up, for taking hospitalized prisoners too lightly.
As an FTO I taught my rookies to take control of the prisoner, of the room, know who everyone is, and Stay Alert. It's not a night off.
Be carefull.

That last time I had to sit at a hospital w/a prisoner was when some old guy shot his wife. After a couple of hours he got out of bed, started to walk (I'm being generous here) and said, "I don't think I'm gonna make it", then crapped all over the floor.

Had one of our guys let an inmate use the crapper without any restraints on. He rushed out of the bathroom, knocking the officer down causing him to break his arm. He proceeded to run down the hall and down a flight of stairs with the officer giving chase. There just happened to be a couple local cops in the ER taking a report when they got word of it. They found him hiding in the courtyard under a bench. He caught a couple new charges and the officer learned a tough lesson.

It's probably a good thing a lot of your supervisors don't read this forum. The phone alone would be grounds for dismissal. Stay on your jobs gentlemen, that is what you get paid for.

Different agencies, different situations. We contact our communications with our cell phones. If we don't use our own, we can check out one. This is how different our agency is. Sergeants carry personal cell phones daily. Floor officers commonly carry phones as well, although by the policy, its technically prohibited. Same for tobacco products. I have openly dipped tobacco on post in the past. Its not a big deal where I am.

That's when you poke your head out the door, and say "excuse me, nurse?" Let them have control of the room for a few minutes at that point. :whistling:

When we have a male that is acting up, it's not uncommon for them to find a nice catheter to insert.

What is your experience with he hospital's security? I had a guy 4 pointed to the bed for his violent outbursts. Dude had to take a piss so I left him have one of his hands to piss in the container, well he flipped out and fought me tooth and nail getting his hand back in the handcuff. I asked the nurse to have their security come up and help me (this guy was out of control, and had MRSA), and they never showed up. A dozen closed first strikes later, his hand was back in the cuff and he got a catheter inserted shortly after. I think the nurse enjoyed inflicting the pain on him, I found it amusing :whistling:

But back to the boredom, we are prohibited from having "electronic devices" in the room. They don't specify what is an electronic device since they issue us a phone, but I see no harm in having my personal phone on me. But I do not make personal calls to anyone, on either cell phone. It is amusing the looks the inmate gets when they are doctor ordered to walk the corridor, and are in full restraints.

We have two hospitals we go to, and security is vastly different at each one. Different private companies. At Hospital "A" (where we go most often because the city has a contract with them to treat those in custody) the security is almost worthless. They are not even allowed to touch a patient. They can stand there, and call the police if any actual crime or physical intervention is needed. The nurses, on the other hand, are great and don't put up with any bull from anyone. So it's a catch 22 at that place. Hospital "B" has slightly better security, but nurses are a little more timid.

Its a joke. Thankfully, by policy all hospital escorts are done by 2 officers. This policy went into effect after a series of escapes, and a CO was shot and killed.

I like pressue points in the situation above. Nothing like a good Infra-Orbital . Lock it in good enough, and he will ask how tight you want the cuff to be :supergrin:

That is when you call the hospital operator and ask them to page out a "code brown" to Room 326.

Some of ours may, and cell phones are what we use off the property per policy.

Since we're responsible for security we administer the necessary force. Rarely happens beyond words where I am at, because they know we'll use it, and if need be take them back to the joint.

Same here, they usually enjoy being at the hospital with the better food, great scenery and more tv channels. This gentlemen was having severe detox issues, so he was not in his right mind.

My dept. is so wrapped up in their Liability Oriented Policing that we are basically not allowed to touch inmates unless you are on the response team. And the inmates know it. Of course there is no policy but they will find a way to give a letter in your file for something or another. :upeyes: I actually dont mind, I call for a fight or what not and let them deal with all the paperwork that comes with it and go home after my 8 hours. :dunno:
