as an outpatient receiving speedy observation Antworten

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - James Harrison returned to the Pittsburgh Steelers for two main reasons, to shore up the teams sagging linebacking corps and to win another Super Bowl.It took a month for Harrison to make an impact on the Steelers defence, but the teams post-season fate could be determined this week. If the Steelers (9-5) beat the Kansas City Chiefs (8-6) Sunday at Heinz Field, they will qualify for the NFL playoffs for the first time since the 2011 season.I came back with the hopes of helping the team win, Harrison said. Thats the same reason I went to Cincinnati last year, to help them win. So, this is no different, and I feel like Im heading in the right direction. I feel good, and Im ready to go.The Harrison of old — the one who earned five Pro Bowl trips and an NFL defensive player of the year award — showed up against the Colts and Ravens. Just when Harrison appeared to be on top of his game, he suffered a knee injury Nov. 30 against New Orleans that forced him to miss the past two games.After two good practice days this week, Harrison appears to be ready to return to bolster the Steelers pass rush.He probably needed a little football early on when he came back, but he had that early, defensive co-ordinator Dick LeBeau said. Those two games back to back when he had the multiple sacks (two in each game), thats when he got into football shape. Hes been ready to go ever since then. And I think hes ready to go now, so Im sure hes 100 per cent.Harrison was confident that he would play against the Chiefs, and he believed the Steelers success would continue as their health and execution on defence steadily improved as well.The best way to go into the playoffs is winning, Harrison said. Thats the only way to do it, whether you have to win or dont have to win to get in. You want to go in on a winning streak. So, were getting a little better each week, and we hope to get on a little roll going into the dance.Notes: SS Troy Polamalu (knee), TE Matt Spaeth (elbow) and WR Markus Wheaton (illness) did not practice Thursday. .

Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win.JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius murder trial began a new phase Monday when the Olympic athlete arrived at a state psychiatric hospital for a monthlong evaluation whose terms have been described by some as favourable to the double-amputee runner. Pistorius, who killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his home last year, sat in the passenger seat of a black sedan and spoke on a cellphone as he arrived behind a police van at Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital in Pretoria, the South African capital. The judge who will deliver a verdict in the case asked the hospital to determine if Pistorius had a mental disorder at the time of the shooting, which could affect whether he should be held criminally responsible. Pistorius must arrive by 9 a.m. and can leave by 4 p.m. each weekday, and has weekends off under an order from Judge Thokozile Masipa. Pistorius, who is free on bail, has been staying at the upscale Pretoria home of his uncle. Pistorius outpatient status troubles some experts who say 24-hour observation is common in state psychiatric facilities. In the evenings, nursing staff can get additional insights into a patients mental state that complement formal questioning and other tests during the day, say the experts. "There is a benefit" to the after-hours observation, said Lee-Ann Hartman, a clinical psychologist who has worked in state psychiatric facilities. Masipas instruction came after a psychiatrist testified that Pistorius, who has said he feels particularly vulnerable because of his disability and long-held worry about crime, had an anxiety disorder that could have contributed to his shooting of Steenkamp on Feb. 14, 2013. The judge was responding to a prosecution request for an independent inquiry, based on concern the defence would argue Pistorius was not guilty because of mental illness. Prosecutors allege Pistorius killed Steenkamp intentionally after a late-night fightt, but the athlete says he mistook his girlfriend for a dangerous intruder hiding in a toilet cubicle when he shot her multiple times through the door.dddddddddddd There is a long waiting list for observation cases at state psychiatric hospitals and Pistorius assessment will be faster because he does not need a hospital bed, said Gerhard Grundling, chair of the Clinical Psychology Forum, a South African group. He said the observation will likely include blood tests and possible brain scans and that more specialists, including a neurologist, can get involved as needed. Additionally, in such observations, social workers gather "collateral information" in interviews with friends, family and others, according to Grundling. Other trials had been delayed for nearly a year because of patient backlogs at state mental health facilities, said Jack Bloom, an opposition member of the provincial legislature. "Everyone should be equal before the law, no matter how famous," Bloom said, urging authorities to explain the runners "preferential treatment" as an outpatient receiving speedy observation. Pistorius faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder. Trial proceedings resume June 30. The high-security Weskoppies hospital was called the Pretoria Lunatic Asylum long ago. Accounts described crowded, unhygienic conditions and staffing shortages there during the 1899-1902 Anglo-Boer war, though conditions later improved. In the 1950s, two medical experts at Weskoppies wrote in South Africas medical journal that it was undesirable to house criminal suspects together with mentally ill patients who had not been charged with any crime, but noted the advantage of 24-hour scrutiny. "Under these conditions," they wrote, "any attempt to evade criminal responsibility by simulation of mental disorder is fraught with extreme difficulty." ' ' '
