When a death occurs suddenly, unexpectedly and from unnatural or unknown causes, a forensic scientist has the duty to gather and analyze evidence to determine whether the victim died from a previously undiagnosed disease or infection or from a homicide, suicide or accident (Lurigio, 2009). When considering suicide as the probable cause of death, we are looking at the act of intentionally killing oneself through one’s own effort or with the assistance of another (Sever, 2009). The resolution of the manner of death by a forensic pathologist as suicide is based on a series of factors which eliminate natural causes of death, homicide and accident (Geberth, 2013, p.55). The cause of death is also determined by the medical examiner in
Among American civilians, whites have historically and significantly led the way in the rates of suicides. Although leveling off after the 1990’s, the rate of white suicides has still been almost twice as much as minority groups. It has also been shown that males commit suicide significantly more than females.
Terror stricken, she said softly, “Then the death of my dear friend would have been in vain. The betrayal of Freddie and the other lads would account for nothing. He’s got to be found,” she stopped and later burst into a torrent of tears, “otherwise, I will be killed by his henchman, who I fear is still taking orders from him.”
Researchers conduct hypotheses that suicide could be contagious. Researchers had a total of 22,064 individuals ages 12 to 17. When conducting the study they met on cycles to monitor the exposure to suicide. All groups which were separated into age had an outcome of 95% of exposure to suicide. Researchers also questioned how often certain groups were or had feelings of depression or suicidal thoughts from stressful events during the cycles. In further research, 24.1% from the ages 16 and 17 responded that someone from school has committed suicide and which 20.1%
Statistics on suicide related behavior in the military are troubling. Following a stable suicide rate since 1977, military suicides increased in 2004 (Lineberry & O’Connor, 2012) and exceeded civilian rates in 2008 (Army STARRS). Current suicide rates per 100,000 among active duty (18.7), Reserves (23.4) and National Guard (28.9) remain significantly higher than that of the US civilian population (13.0) although more comparable to the US male civilian population (20.6). While accurate comparisons necessitate statistical adjustment to allow for the military’s disproportionately male population (Braswell & Kushner, 2010) the military increase is in sharp contrast to the stable civilian rate (Kessler, 2013). Active duty suicides (28.1%) further surpassed combat deaths (18.6%) in 2012 (MSMR, 2014). However, the decline of the OIF/OEF combat (Belasco, 2009) may provide a partial explanation.
This paper will attempt to prove Mr. Ard did NOT have the chance to survive due to the lack of supervision from his nursing staff. As well as attempt to prove that the employer is in fact responsible for the actions or non-actions of its medical staff. The medical staff during that time did not make the necessary and they did not provide the proper care that one is required in a medical setting. There was a lack of communication between the staff and patient till it was too late. For two hours the bell was being rung and no one of assistance came by. Where were the nurses? Were they off the clock, on lunch, asleep, or were they just simply not doing their duty?
Brassard case, No. 06636, 2010 WL 2764724, at *1 (Mass. Super. Mar. 23, 2010), where the Judgment was entered for the defendant. In this case, the court held that the defendant was not negligent in his care and treatment of the deceased patient. Here, Howard (the patient); like Honey; because of his prior medical history had significant risks of developing pulmonary embolism. He eventually died of pulmonary embolism without receiving adequate treatment to address the disease regardless his condition. The court held that Dr. Brassard didn’t depart from the standard in medical malpractice, because he wasn’t properly informed of the patient prior medical condition. Dr. Brassard’s failure to ask the patient about his previous medical condition and to read the modestly-sized medical record (29-30 pages) were not sufficient to establish negligent care and treatment of the deceased patient. Oppositely, in Honey’s case, her high exposure for pulmonary embolism was known before she departed from the Hospital. The in-home care by visiting nurses and physical therapists of Medi-Ready, Inc. purpose was to monitor her vital signs and blood pressure, and to prescribe medications in prevention of pulmonary embolism. The Court is likely to find that the non-administration of adequate treatment to prevent the pulmonary embolism was a departure from medical good practice because the physicians were informed of Honey condition

The police officers who responded to the attack were also reported as a high suicide risk group due to their experience of the terror attack. Data was obtained from a phone cop hotline from 2001-2004 and researchers found that suicide ideation calls increased and urgent care suicide calls increased 1.65 times compared to pre-9/11 data (Violanti,

Mrs Mensah recalled the day David became very unwell and reported that at the time, the family lived together in a rented accommodation. Mrs Mensah recalled that she had been at work and was only made aware of the incident as she approached the property and saw the ambulance. Mrs Mensah reported that she wasn’t too concerned as ambulances often visited the property due to David’s breathing, but recognised that something was serious when David had to be resuscitated at the property. Mrs Mensah stated that she followed the ambulance to St Thomas’s Hospital where David was admitted.
In the novel’s society, no one has to feel pain or to be afraid of death, life or problems. John struggles to understand a foreign, and completely repulsive conformist society and its citizens. John can't come to terms with this new world he's encountered, and at a failed attempt to separate himself from it, he committed suicide. In that context, I have chosen to write a suicide letter to show that there is not and won’t be, anyway, a perfect society. Otherwise, how John feels about being considered since his childhood as a stranger, rejected by his surroundings and remaining alone. It was written with a depressed tone and intends to aim a general audience, especially teenagers.
Initially my feelings regarding this incident were quite harsh and somewhat irrational. My only thoughts were why had this patient lied and concluded that she may be amplifying her symptoms or potentially attention seeking. However, this did not affect my treatment towards this patient and she received the investigation and treatment she needed in which to recover as instructed by the registrar. Soon after this
