Mr. V, a 62-year-old man, voluntarily committed himself 2 days previously for recurrent thoughts of
suicide since the death of his wife several months ago. He reports frequently sitting at her graveside
with a gun and a bottle of whiskey. He is alert and oriented × 3 (e.g., knows who he is, where he is, and
what day and year it is) and answers questions appropriately, but he is preoccupied with thoughts of
death. He is on one-to-one suicide precautions.
