I had a co worker tell me about his father who is in a nursing home suffering from Alzheimer. Because he's verbally abusive, and the home is throwing him out. This is going to be the 3 time it has happened.
At first I was out raged, I said this is what they are paid a lot of money for. They are supposed to know how to handle people like that. That was just unacceptable.
He asked well what do you suppose they should do?
I said they should put a bark collar on him, that'll shut him up.
He busted out laughing, but then thought about it for a second like...
"Hmm that just might work."
What's wrong with drugging patients? Isn't that what Doctors do?
They should have a hookah in the rec room.
Isnt this the very purpose of those drugs? Some retards are violent and even fling feces like apes do. Imagine dealing with that 'using your words' you gotta restrain them one way or another.
