    Had a staffing, risk management planning & crisis safety planning mtg this morning for kt.

    First, I thought I was late as Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) coordinator called me at my doctor appointment to inform me that I was late & she was waiting outside my home. My doctor was gracious enough to let me take this call (forgot to put my phone on "in meeting") as she was writing up orders & scripts.

    Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) coordinator calls back 5 minutes later - she was wrong & I WAS RIGHT! That doesn't happen often. I was right, I was right, nanny nanny boo boo:bigsmile:.

    I began the meeting discussing the cigarette thing. No one talked for about 2 minutes (unusual for a group this size) then all began talking at once.

    I stopped all the input, told them my reasoning & that I would continue this because my mom gut was telling me this was the right thing to do.

    I heard from each of the staff & then 2 of them began to back me up; understood my concerns & needs to keep kt safe from herself & others.

    Meeting went well - emotional but it went well.

    Glad to hear they back you up! And, why didn't Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) coord wonder about the timing when she was the only one who showed up!!!!!!!!

    They are informed and you got a little support. Sounds like the best you could hope for under the circumstances. I'm glad you feel better. DDD
