That might mean that some INSTRUCTIONs never get COMPLETED
until the patient dies.

It might help to think of shifts in responsibility: who is
primarily responsible for completion of a given action ?

- write prescription -> doctor
- hand out drug based on prescription -> pharmacist
- take drug as instructed -> patient

Each change of responsibility: doctor -> pharmacist ->
patient might warrant a COMPLETED state.
