Character error 

No asylum where a character is imprisoned as criminally insane would give inmates metal forks. They would be replaced by plastic cutlery, for exactly the reasons that they end up being used here - fear of being used as weapons to attack staff or other inmates.

Continuity 

After Laurie and Michael fall out of the window, she picks up the revolver and as she pulls the trigger it clicks on three empty chambers. This would not be the case if Dr. Loomis had already fired the gun. Laurie would have not hit on the three empty chambers but on the three loaded chambers.
