Each morning when I entered the building and went to the bank of elevators, I passed a desk with a corrections officer sitting watch. The officers were assigned to safeguard staff and patients. Seeing a familiar face daily was comforting to me and gave me a semblance of normalcy, but only a semblance.

Hey, doc, you got a parking ticket? an officer would say with professed bravado. Let me talk to a friend in the police department.

The normalcy of an adult conversation was reassuring in contrast to the crazy conversations I sometimes heard on the units. Whenever violence broke out on a unit, an alarm sounded, and the loud speakers would summon the officers. The officers, however, were no more trained than the staff in managing out-of-control assaultive behaviors, and they often ended up turning to the staff for guidance. It was the blind leading the blind.-excerpt fromFrom Deep Within
