|INCIDENT REPORT: SD 239404.11
TO: Chythar Skyfire
This letter is being written to you in reference to your use of involuntary restraint against a patient under your care, Lieutenant Cory Stoyer, on stardate 239303.31.
The Starfleet Medical Ethics Board recognises that there are situations in which involuntary restraint is necessary, in order to prevent harm to a patient, or to the staff involved in a patient's care. However, after an extensive investigation and consideration of all available evidence and testimony, the Board has concluded that Lieutenant Stoyer had the capacity to make decisions regarding his own care, and thus was free to decline treatment and leave sickbay against medical advice.
As such, the use of physical restraint in this incidence was inappropriate and constitutes the offence of assault against a fellow officer. Accordingly, you are hereby demoted to the rank of lieutenant, effective immediately.
You have the right of appeal, and you may contact your nearest JAG office (located in the Starfleet Embassy on Palanon, Tyrellian System) if you wish to pursue this right.
