    I once thought about applying for a dental hygienist position in a federal prison…decided not to because it involved moving. In that environment, the need to have situational awareness seems to be obvious, but even in that case, I could see clinicians getting complacent. I think many of us become too complacent in environments we see as “safe”. Of course, we shouldn’t always walk around in high alert status, but I think we should constantly remind ourselves to stay aware on some level.

    Three cheers for the family dog!!! While certainly not a reason to get a dog, it is one of the benefits. I remember a story a few years ago where a chihuahua actually saved a family because it alerted them to an intruder. In that case, the intruder did kill the dog, but the family escaped safely and that dog died a hero.

    You and I have discussed this before, that if you have had a little training, you can quickly learn to assume a posture that will identify you to BG’s as a “wolf not a sheep.” Thank you for sharing this story.
