Tansy, Tallulah



      D.O.B: 28/12/1992
      AGE: 19
      GENDER: F
      STREET ADDRESS: 8000 Helmly Street
      TOWN/CITY: Bayou La Batre, Mobile
      STATE: Alabama
      HEIGHT: 5 ft 7 inches
      WEIGHT: 110 lbs
      ETHNICITY: Caucasian
      DISTINGUISHING MARKS: None.


Tallulah was initially asked to complete the application herself unmonitored, but did not take the task seriously. Original answers are included for your records but I- Doctor Esperanza Clark , Attenting Psychiatrist for BayPointe Hospital’s Outpatient Services- have provided information where patient’s answers are inadequate.

_____________________________________
Medical History

Do you have any ongoing medical issues for which you require treatment or medication?:

Right now I believe I’m suffering from cat AIDS, syphilis, big dick syndrome and your mother choked on it last night.

Tallulah is anaemic and suffering from a mild form of tetany as a result of a poor diet.

Are you aware of any allergies? If so, please list allergy, age of onset and any medications or treatments you require or recieve:

I am allergic to this bullshit. Treatment is a good hard fucking every couple of hours

Patient suffers from celiac disease and a dairy intolerance and must follow a strict dairy and gluten free diet otherwise she suffers from severe stomach pains and vomiting. Attempts to sabotage this diet and trigger a reaction are frequent. Due care and attention at mealtimes recommended.

Have you had any surgeries or invasive procedures in the past? If yes, please list reason and approximate age of procedure:

Dildos are an invasive procedure, right?

Patient received adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy at seven years old.

Do you take any medications or supplements daily? Do you follow any treatment plans? Please list medications or treatments, and reasons below:

FUCK.
THE.
MEDS.

Tallulah has been prescribed iron tablets to be taken once daily for her anaemia and requires supplementary calcium in the form of calcium carbonate taken with meals. She is to take Seroquel twice daily but is usually violently opposed to taking her medication.

Do you use tobacco, consume alcohol, or use any other drugs including street drugs and/or prescription medications not prescribed to you? If yes, please list number of packs a day, number of drinks a day, and/or drugs consumed below:

I smoke about ten a day, roll ups NOT straight cut. Pall Mall. With menthol tips and THIN rolling papers. You better make sure I get my smokes in the new place, Clarky, I swear to god. I heard if you say you’re a heroin addict, they give you a shot of methadone in your ass twice a day. I’ll take the ass shot too, if it’s going.

Patient smokes up to ten cigarettes a day and has been drinking heavily for the past two years- up to two bottles of wine a day. She has been written up on two separate occasions for attending therapy sessions intoxicated.
_____________________________________
Psychiatric Screening

Please describe, to the best of your ability, your emotional and mental state of wellbeing:

My mental state of well being? I guess right now, I’d say that I’m fucking sick, you geniuses. There’s the prognosis doctor Freud, so now I guess I owe you four thousand million dollars.

Tally oscillates between frosty and aloof but relatively stable and, as you can probably surmise from her answers, periods of erratic behaviour or extreme agitation, triggered most likely by a perceived lack of stimulation or what she believes is unjust treatment. At present, she seems to be in a state of severe, almost maniacal frustration due to the prospect of a transfer, but the patient is known to manufacture theatrical displays of false or enhanced emotion in order to achieve a desired reaction. She takes pleasure in goading others into similar distress or anger, is constantly testing the limits and trying to ‘shock’ .Since beginning the program, Tallulah has been preoccupied with her looks and is incredibly nervous about gaining weight from her medication. Towards authority figures Tally is destructive, obstructive and uncommunicative; however ,she demonstrates clear lucidity in situations where she is sufficiently occupied.

Have you been diagnosed with any psychiatric or psychological ailments? Please list any diagnoses below, and the treatments or medications prescribed to you. Please include name of medications, dosage, and number of doses per day:

Depends what day of the week it is. Right now they say Anti- Social Personality Disorder, which is such a fucking joke. How can someone’s personality be a fucking disorder? It’s who they fucking are…. which means that the treatment is…taking out their personality. Oh goody. When I’m a fucking no mind, zombie droolie like the rest of them, I’ll be cured.

Clarky's gonna say I’m throwing up on purpose again. Which I wouldn’t have to do if you didn’t keep trying to cram Seroquil down my throat. Half the women in the sessions are the fattest dykiest bitches you ever saw. It makes you gain weight – they write it on the fucking box, ‘side effects include weight gain’ and they still make you take it.

When I won Miss Teen Princess Mobile County I was six pounds lighter and now I look like a fat dyke and the only thing that has changed is the fucking Seroquil.

The fatter you are the more cured you are apparently.

Tallulah has deliberately led therapists and doctors to misdiagnosis in the past. She was admitted to the Rehabilitation Programme after mimicking a depressive episode and when evaluations suggested that this was not the case she claimed to hear voices but later admitted this was false. Diagnosis for Tallulah has been difficult, as I suspect was her intention, but her patterns of deceptive behaviour, lack of remorse and disposition for aggression are consistent of an Anti-Social Personality Disorder.She is overly preoccupied with weight gain and exploits her celiac disease in such a way that I feel is symptomatic of a relapse into Bulimia Nervosa- CBT would be beneficial.

Her mother has made it clear that she suspected Tally of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder as a child, but chose not to act on her worries, already overwhelmed with the medical bills and care of one disabled child.


Have you ever been hospitalised or referred to regular outpatient care due to these ailments or associated incidents? If so, please note where, and at roughly what age:

Been flying over the cuckoo’s nest twice now, for all the good it does me. Take the pills, go to the sessions and listen to the fucking droolies. Fuck it. Fluoxetine makes you a fucking zombie , Seroquel makes you fat as shit.

I bet you guys really miss the good old days don’t you? Wires in the brain, dunking naked chicks in tanks of ice water because they ‘have the devil inside of them’ and you charge a dime so people can come along and laugh.

Tally was admitted to a psychiatric hospital at fourteen years old displaying what were believed to be the symptoms of bulimia nervosa and was later diagnosed with celiac disease- she'd discovered that bread was making her vomit and would gorge on it to purge her system. Following a psychiatric evaluation, a course of cognitive behavioural therapy and antidepressants (fluoxetine) were prescribed but patient did not complete either.

Her teenage years were less troubled though Tally shows some awareness of suffering from the results of her personality disorder. She confessed to being shaken by her experiences on a psychiatric ward at fourteen and did not seek medical help in the five years between this incident and now, attempting instead to self medicate with alcohol, finding an outlet and some degree of release in competing in small, local pageants. After being arrested for assault , however, she was given a psychiatric evaluation and the opportunity to site mental health issues as grounds for diminished responsibility but instructed her court appointed lawyer to plead guilty without it, preferring to serve a punitive sentence outright. Her condition worsened subsequent to this conviction.

She was referred to us by the crisis care department of this facility after hospitalization following an incident at home. She threatened her mother with a knife, managing to injure both of them but her mother did not file criminal charges against her.

Tallulah has been attending a Rehabilitative Day Program here at BayPointe for roughly eight weeks. She was diagnosed as being in a depressive episode but presented herself to staff as maniacal and violently erratic. She claimed to hear voices but later revoked these claims. It is still unclear as to why she led doctors to misdiagnoses.

Her current mental state and recent troubling, disruptive behaviour suggests that she will be unable to complete the program at this stage and her continued presence on the program is detrimental to the well being of other patients in recovery. It is the belief of this facility that Tallulah would benefit from a period of institutionalization and closer monitoring.


How have these ailments affected you and your life? Are there any major life instances you feel have been directly affected by these ailments, such as suicide attempts, criminal activities, etc?:

I know what they’ll fucking write and I didn’t have anything to do with it. She wanted out and it isn’t my fucking fault she couldn’t handle it. She was such a little bitch anyway, like you have no idea. Everybody knew it was coming -it was all she could fucking talk about and it’s not my fault the Ratcheds had their heads in their asses. Nothing to do with me, I swear to god.

And what’s the big deal ,anyway? It’s one less fucking droolie to deal with.

Now they’re saying that I can’t stay here, stay at home and just keep going to the sessions because one dumb bitch killed herself. It’s fucked up. I didn’t kill her. If I killed her then why am I not in jail?

It’s simple. They’re moving me on because I talk too much, I don’t take the Seroquel like a good little fat girl, my mom wants me out of the picture and I'm Miss Teen Princess.

The incident Tallulah is referring to is the recent suicide of a woman she met through the Rehabilitation Program. J.F. The relationship was parasitic in nature and Tally was controlling and posessive. Staff members have confessed their belief that J. F was immediately taken with Tallulah, and they were identified as ‘close friends’, just as J’s mental health began to deteriorate where previously she had been making great progress. Soon the relationship was flagged as something to be concerned about; Tallulah most likely pushed J.F into drinking and experimenting with drugs, would bite and scratch J. if she grew annoyed at her and was frequently caught speaking in a way that was emotionally abusive.

Another, similarly troubled patient came to staff with a complaint that Tallulah had been goading her into suicide. There is an ongoing inquiry by the board of directors as to why the staff failed to act on these complaints but Tallulah was questioned by the police and not charged with any involvement in the death of J. F


-The administration of BayPointe Hospital wishes it to be on record that the desired removal of Tallulah Jane Tansy from this facility is entirely unrelated to this inquiry.

What is your social life like? Do you have many friends or relationships? How are your family relationships?:

I was a Miss Teen Princess, what the fuck do you think my social life is like? I mean, most girls in Mobile are pretty tragic but it’s still pretty big deal. The droolies in the day centre stink worse than anything I’ve come across in my life. I mean, anyone only has to look in the room and see that I’m not supposed to be there.

And yes, I used to hang out with Jenny. She had an apartment paid for her by the government, lucky slut. And yes, she used to loan me clothes and money and tell me all her little ‘secrets’ because she was a tragic lonely bitch. But that doesn’t mean I made her kill herself.

Tally is a habitual liar and has confessed to a frequent pandering of other people’s fears and emotions through deception. She gravitates towards emotionally co-dependent people and unstable people, winning them over with a shallow charm and flattery. In private sessions, she is incredibly scathing towards fellow patients, frequently using derogatory and offensive language to describe them. “Droolies” is her term for psychiatric patients and she believes that she is above all of them. Though self obsessed, Tally enjoys finding out what makes people tick as it means provoking better reactions, which means more entertainment for her. She can be incredibly cruel in her interactions with other human beings. For the most part, Tallulah sees people as a means to an end. After J.F was found dead in her apartment, records of cheques written out to Tallulah were identified by the police totalling almost $1100. She was taken in for questioning and released without charge but has shown no grief or genuine emotion over the death of her friend.

Do you believe your life circumstances have contributed to any ailments? If so, what circumstances, and why do you feel they have contributed?:

Let’s see, after Katrina we lost fucking everything and my dad went nutso, I watched my brother get knocked around the house by my drunk asshole of a dad when he didn’t even understand what was going on and I was the one wiping his blood off the side board while my mom didn’t do shit to save him. So yeah I'd say it's their fault I'm sick.

It was all me and Scot, for most of our lives. No one gave us shit that we didn’t have to break our backs for.

And I still won Miss Teen Princess. Fuck your ‘ailments’…whatever.

It is likely the abuse Tally witnessed of her brother triggered her Anti Social Personality Disorder while her pageant success seems to have enforced selfish attention seeking behavior as well as a preoccupation with her appearance.

If you could change one past event that has happened to you, what would it be, and why?:

Taking the Seroquil. Gaining six pounds. Sucking off your husband. Any of those three

Do you wish to rehabilitate from your ailment(s)? If so, how do you feel this would best be accomplished?:

When a limb gets infected, you can’t fix it so you cut it off and throw it in the fucking trash. I don't care.

Go rehabilitate a shrivelled dead dick

Tally is desperate not to take any more medication, to regain her freedom and independence and would prefer to re-enter society, but is unwilling to make any changes to do so and is totally unable to see that she is not functioning well in society. Right now she lacks the impulse control, the ability to suppress her anger and any idea about actions and consequences to be successfully rehabilitated.

Tallulah's frequent vomiting and opportunistic abuse of her disease and health also troubles me- I would suggest a medical examination to test for any subsequent damage to her system.



_____________________________________
Environmental History

Where did you grow up? Please list the location(s) and describe what it was like growing up there:

I’ve lived in Bayou La Batre my whole life. It’s a shithole. The people are shitty, the scenery is shitty and there was shit all to do. Just the pageant really and then when I did that there was even less to do. I guess we did some appropriately fucked up things when we were kids, Scot and me. We found our mom’s tampons and shoved them in our ears, we climbed trees, we pulled the wings off moths, (okay I did that, and he always yelled at me for it) and played mommy and daddy. Kid’s stuff. The rest of the kids in our neighborhood were assholes, they always threw rocks at my brother. But I used to get them back.

Katrina fucked everything over when I was twelve, we went and stayed in a football stadium for like a week and when they cleared everything away there was this boat in our yard and we didn’t have shit left. Like I mean nothing. And that’s when I realised that it never lasts and that it all means shit. Work hard, build a life and then watch the ocean swallow it up.

I do what I want, when I want because the ocean is coming, bitches.

What was your family life like? Did you spend much time with your parents? Do you have any siblings? If so, what are your relationships like?:

My family can go fuck themselves. My mom is an asshole and my Dad is worse less than shit.

They all say that, though don’t they…boohoo, daddy didn’t love me enough.

"If he loved me, he would have fucked me with his eyes open." There are so many people like that in our therapy sessions. That shit is hilarious every time.

Scot is different though. Scot loves me…he’s basically like one of my fucking limbs, like the other half of me…you know…the part that gives a shit about stuff. He needs me and I need him and my mom can’t deal with that- she’s jealous. I’m younger, I’m prettier and I mean more to Scot than she ever will. Which is why she’s kicking up a fuss and having me sent away.

Her family relationships are strained and have been since her childhood. Tallulah’s father was alcoholic and abusive though her mother insists that the abuse was mostly aimed at her older brother, Tally is still deeply scarred by what she saw. More than her father, who no longer lives with the family, Tallulah blames her mother for the abuse and is unable to fathom why she allowed her children to remain in a violent household. She’s confessed to having thoughts of killing both her mother and her father and says she would one day like to act on them too. Tallulah’s brother, Scot, was left mildly mentally disabled by complications of having the mumps in infancy and she was ignored throughout her childhood in favour of him. Her mother to care for him, her father to be abusive. In session, Tally has painted an exaggerated picture of neglect but I believe that there is truth in it. Despite this, Tally is utterly devoted to her brother, citing him as her ‘conscience’ suggesting that she doesn’t know right from wrong without outside influence. This relationship fits her pattern of gravitating towards emotionally co-dependent 'weaker' individuals. Tally’s mother has raised concerns that her relationship with her brother is sexual in nature, and it was while attempting to approach her daughter with the subject that Tallulah began to grow aggressive and threatened her mother with a knife. She still becomes increasingly agitated at the mere mention of the subject and denies the allegations vehemently. Tally still operates under the belief that her mother has orchestrated her transfer to ‘get rid of her’.

What was school like? Did you have any problems? Did you enjoy school? What were your grades like?:

Fuck school. Aint nothing in life worth knowing is taught and school and the teachers were all perverts, I swear to god. Fuck em.

Tally’s grades were poor and she was often in trouble for bullying other students. In person, however, she is quite well read and can be very articulate when she wants to be .


Did you engage in any extracurricular activities, such as academic, artistic, or sporting clubs?:

Pageants are a big thing, obviously. So is hair and makeup. If you get sent to prison then they let you do a beauty course, but I get stuck with the droolies making useless fucking macaroni shapes. I like to take photographs- since Scott isn’t the best reader, a lot of pictures together is way better than writing a letter or something.

Tally seems have a genuine interest in art, makeup and pageantry. More so than she has in people. Her pageant history suggests that ,in the past, she has been able to overcome her disorder to an extent to achieve what she deems to be worthy goals. She refers to this past constantly, and enormously exaggerates the significance of winning the very localized title. Her mother claims that she had never seen her daughter so devastated as when she was forced to give up her crown for failing in her duties.

What was work like? Did you have any problems? Did you enjoy your work? What were your coworker relationships like?:

Fuck working some dead end job- I’m still going to Hollywood.

Tally left school at 18 without graduating and hasn’t ever had a job, despite her families finical hardship. She sees herself as above menial labor, but is able to contribute money to her family in other ways- usually at the expense of others. She is single minded in her career path, with grandiose plans of fame and fortune but has made no steps towards achieving this goal and, when questioned, seems unsure of what the profession requires.

Have you ever been convicted of a crime or misdemeanour? If yes, please explain, list conviction, and list any sentences associated with convictions:

Some dumb bitch started a fight and I was defending myself and I was the one who got charged for it. That’s fucking America right there. That’s fucking me defending my rights and getting fucked in the ass for it.
The constitution is bullshit.

In the same year that she won her pageant, Tallulah was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. The police reports suggest a brutal and sustained attack on the victim. She was convicted and sentenced to community service and forced to give up her crown by the pageant committee. Tallulah refuses to acknowledge this, as far as she is concerned she's still a pageant queen.

She has been fined on several occasions for public intoxication and was once fined for obstructing the course of justice, identifying under cover police offers and attempting to solicit them for sex in an outrageous manner while her friend filmed it.


Lastly, please tell us about yourself. How do you feel about yourself and what you have done with your life? If you have committed crimes, how do you feel about those now? What are your hopes for the future?:

Everyone was telling me to go for Miss USA, but I didn’t need the ‘scholarship’ or whatever…besides, I’m smarter than that. That’s what I told the modelling people too. So many people have said I should be a model.
When I get out of the drool factory I’m going to Hollywood, gonna be a makeup artist for the stars. For the people who know how to actually look good.

Not like fat dyke out patients and doctors who look like fucking Labyrinth characters. Seriously Dr Clarky, it’s not the eighties anymore. Just because that was the last time your husband was attracted to you doesn’t mean you should keep dressing like that….

There is no question in my mind as to whether Tally played some part in the death of her supposed friend and fellow patient at this facility, J.F, but seemingly this has had no lasting effect on Tallulah Jane Tansy whatsoever.


_____________________________________
Out of Character Section

What are they not telling us? What secrets do they have to hide? What back story are we not hearing? This is where you can tell us all the things your character wouldn't put on an application, or others don't know.:

((Remember, if you put all their back story as a secret, we won't be able to admit them to Hallowsgate! This section is for secrets only, not the entire character history. We need most of the info in the main app so we can process it!)) Tally has been having sex with her brother since she was fifteen as a means of controlling him. The day before she died, Jenny wrote Tally a check for $500 and confessed that she was going to overdose on prescription painkillers.

Tally said it seemed like a solid plan and asked if she could have her DVD collection. No goading involved- it was Jenny’s choice and Tally respected it. Especially since she got a lot of DVDs.

Singing in the Rain is Tally’s favourite film.

THERAPY NOTES
_____________________________________

    Date: 12/01/12
    Attending: Dr. Benjamin Graham
    Session With: Dr. Anita Forrester
    Session: Group Therapy


Therapy Notes: In today's session, the topic was positive and negative emotions, and the patient's experience with each. I had them write down both the most positive and negative emotion they experience and mix them in with a few emotions I added myself. They were then asked to draw out a slip, and describe their experience with whatever was written on the slip. Rather than have them draw one positive and one negative, I left it to chance what they would get, as I am interested in hearing about all emotions they feel and how they affect them.

Tallulah was disruptive and disrespectful in the beginning of the session, but did settle down some toward the end, and even answered honestly. She greeted Joleen when she entered, and when asked to tell us where she was from she simply said Alabama. When everyone as asked to right words on their slips, Tallulah was the first to finish, and she wrote 'shit' and 'piss' on the slips of paper. I was able to sneak them into my hand as I mixed up the papers and she seemed to not notice that her words were never selected. I had a few back up emotions for just such an occasion. She was last to pick a word, but made comments on other people's answered, some more hurtful than others. She didn't understand Quincy's answer about desires for basic needs, and also commented on Mallory's lack of hope. When asked to stop, she would, but only until the next question and she made another remark. She picked the word 'Love' as well, and she responded with a few quotes and line from song. She stated that love is never having to say you're sorry, and that it is both patient and kind. She said "love lifts us up where we belong" and then remarked on the taste of the candy hearts, that they're like chalk. I asked her when she felt love, and she stated that she felt love in the room all around her. I did not call her out on the answer, not wanting to give her anymore of the floor than she'd already had during the session.

Contentment was her final word, and she spoke of being in a pageant back home. Two years ago she won Miss Teen Princess, that she had her crown and sash, and she weight 104lbs. She said this was when she was content. I believe this answer, and that it was the most open and honest she'd been in the session. The group was dismissed after Tallulah's answer.

Additional: I feel that Tallulah and Joleen should be monitored, and not allowed to spend much time alone together as she easily influences the Joleen's behavior. Tallulah must learn to respect the answers of others, and that if she doesn't understand something there are better ways to go about learning than calling people out.

Follow-Up: Individual therapy, perhaps discussing what makes her feel like 'shit' and 'piss' as these were the emotions she decided to give.

THERAPY NOTES
_____________________________________

    Date:
    Attending: Dr. Benjamin Graham
    Session With: Dr. Rose Lewis
    Session: Group Therapy


Therapy Notes: I began the session welcoming each participant and allowing them to choose a seat in a circle within the recreation room. Tally was disrespectful from the start, referring to me by my first name “Rosie” although was altogether pleasant otherwise. Adriana appeared disinterested in the session, as well as Nolan. Lauren was quiet and unassuming upon entering. Jamie appeared irritated and disinterested. We began the session introducing ourselves, and it seemed most were tired of this exercise (as it appears in most sessions—there should be a note regarding who has worked with whom). Shortly thereafter, we began the visualization exercise. After explaining to several members of the group what visualization was—with some help from Tally, albeit critical and rude—we began. I asked them to imagine themselves: You are lost at sea on a stormy night. You see a glimmer of light leading you to land. If you row hard, you can make it. Someone waits for you with a warm meal, dry clothes, and a place to rest. I then stated that we would be sharing what we had seen, and proceeded to go around the circle. Adriana shared that she saw Andrew, and that he reminded her of “Patience, stability....old spice aftershave and that sandalwood orange soap he always used..." Unfortunately, Nolan appeared to have a flashback to the time of his injury. While we woke him, Tally continued to agitate other members of the group. He left of his own accord, cursing the session and storming off. Dr. Finn McAlister was present to help with his dismissal. Jamie Gibbs also decided to leave, declaring the session worthless, and stating that I did not care about her. Tally revealed that she saw herself on the shore, and that she didn’t think that she would make it. Lauren went on to reveal she saw her husband and children, that "Kenneth was holding them in his lap. Kenny and Natalie were holding their arms out for me. They need their mother." Tally and Lauren had a positive exchange, and after this I dismissed the group.

Additional: Tally was incredibly disrespectful throughout the session. She interrupted other members of the group, and pushed several towards outbursts. When the session finished, I pulled her aside to explain that her behavior was unacceptable. I determined that her actions should face consequences.

Follow-Up: It is my recommendation that she have a stricter nutritional regimen that is more closely monitored by staff. She responded with fear as well as protests that she would not misbehave. I believe that forcing her into following her goals will help Tally understand that she cannot act out in her behaviors.

Incident Report
_____________________________________

    Patients involved: Jamie Gibbs & Talluah Tansy
    Responding Staff: Nurse Nevaeh Valentine

Incident Report:
I had just started my shift when I noticed Miss Gibbs calling for medical staff form the ladies room, specifically a doctor. I responded and entered the bathroom, the first thing I noted was the smell of bile and Miss Tansy exiting one of the cubicles. Noting that she is in the Nutritional Support Group and that it has been well over ninety minutes since her last meal, I don't believe miss Tansy was trying to purge She did admit that she is in the nutritional focus group and was simply purging form force of habit. I am not entirely sure this should be believed but there was not evidence to suggest otherwise. The notes on file don't indicate these two to be friends or that they have associated outside of a group therapy where they argued. Because there was no conflict, I sent them on their separate ways.


Additional Notes: Talluah was clearing trying to get my sympathy with a clearly false emotional appeal; her attempts to manipulate situations and people have not seemed to curb since admittance.

Follow-Up:Nothing of note.

INCIDENT REPORT
_____________________________________

    Patient(s) Involved: Tallulah Tansy, Nolan Cooper
    Responding Staff: Officer Dominic Santos


Incident Notes: Mr. Cooper and Ms. Tansy were involved in a physical fight in the Ballroom. Upon questioning, it was clear that both patients were at fault for this altercation. Ms. Tansy and Mr. Cooper was simply dancing with each other, and there weren’t any problems until Ms. Tansy kissed Mr. Cooper, causing the man to draw away. It was reported that something caused Mr. Cooper to scream, to which Ms. Tansy hit him out of annoyance. Mr. Cooper then pushed Ms. Tansy, and she goaded him into hitting her. Mr. Cooper responded by back-handing her on the cheek and kicking her in the stomach, and Ms. Tansy curled up on the floor to defend herself. I arrived when Mr. Cooper was kicking Ms. Tansy, and I subdued him, sending him to isolation shortly after. I radioed in for Ms. Tansy to receive medical treatment for her injuries.

Additional: What made Mr. Cooper scream and not Ms. Tansy was very unclear upon questioning. Ms. Tansy seemed to be the one who started the fight, as Mr. Cooper informed me of. She was the one to hit first, and additionally, she teased him into continuing the fight. In this altercation, she seemed to be the one pulling the strings for the majority of it. She also snarled at Mr. Cooper when I hauled him to his feet- these two should be kept away from each other in the future, at least until they both show significant improvement.

Follow-Up: I would suggest the subject of future therapy sessions for Ms. Tansy to be around taunting and goading. Mr. Cooper seemed to have wanted out of the situation at one point in their interaction, and I believe Ms. Tansy did her part in escalating it.
