“Manifestly Dangerous: True portraits from a maximum security forensic mental health facility and veteran hospitals” This creative non-fiction work presents the procedural, practical, and esoteric elements associated with managing aggressive behaviors in a maximum security forensic MH facility while complying with mandates to eliminate shackles and minimize the use of seclusion and restraints. Assigned to determine the “competency” of those violent inmates charged with felonies who are unable to proceed through Florida’s legal system, the 220 bed facility evaluated and treated a revolving population of 500 inmates who generated 485 assaults and 1 to 2 deaths per year – only discharging back to jails, courts or civil hospital those who were considered no longer “manifestly dangerous”. There is one “tongue-in-cheek” piece the author won’t insult your intelligence by identifying as well as two that are auto-biographical.
