Fatality Inquiry Day # 2
This morning testimony by Tim Bouwsema Registered Psychiatric
Nurse (RPN) testified to the court that he, together with
Joshua Middleton removed Lisa to the secure cell.
He said that Lisa had been agitated and acting out after she
had her IPod taken from her. He testified that he told Lisa
