Working in behavioral health I’ve had them pee and poop on themselves, fake seizures, threaten to assault people, ACTUALLY assault people, and use just about every other tactic of stupidity in order to get what they want. It’s only getting worse with the entitled generation.

ER staff get to be in on all the fun . Just be happy she didn't eat it, smear it all over herself, then fight with you. That's what our last one did. And the one before that was far worse, but I won't go into that on here...it wouldn't be polite.
I'm with BurtonRW on institutionalization. Not all crazy people need locked up, but there are plenty of them that do...and far too many of them that do aren't.

I would think a few CC's of Haldol would do the trick, eh?
"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
I'm always polite to medical personnel. They have too many things they can stick me with or drugs they can give me. Similarly, I'm polite to my hair stylist because he or she is always holding scissors close to my face.

Run their butt out to the decon room and hose them down. Hand them one of those dinky towels from housekeeping. Tell them they can come back in when the are dry. There are the gown and flip flops. Help yourself.
