A missing word distorted the meaning of a sentence in the Law & Psychiatry column entitled "Patients' Responsibility for Their Suicidal Behavior" by Paul S. Appelbaum, M.D., in the January 2000 issue (pages 15–16). In the first paragraph in the first column on page 16, the first sentence should read "In other words, when a physician—or any other health care professional—assumes responsibility for the care of a suicidal patient, the patient's failure to act reasonably will not bar recovery if the clinician was negligent and suicide ensues."
