One busy dude

A new patient had a thick medical file.

Unfortunately, he had also been Baker Acted (admitted to a psychiatric facility against his will due to an acute emotional decline) a few times over the last year or two.

In looking over the records, on every admission LEO was involved:

"After being seen by LEO, he was Baker Acted;""LEO was notified and he was Baker Acted;" "the family called LEO and then he was Baker Acted."

LEO seemed to be available 24/7.


I hate asking stupid questions of co-workers so of course I goggled "LEO and Baker Act," and up popped the answer to the identity of LEO:

" A Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) is usually involved to help carry out a Baker Act..."
