We're told of a child who was nearly drowned, but no children die - not sure what that other commenter is talking about.

One person says that a man who was on screen for a matter of seconds was convicted of raping a child, but it's almost a throwaway line and nothing more.

Indirectly, kind of? Symbiote eats the humans; symbiote lives in a human.

When the symbiote is outside his body, the human host is in a state that might be suggestive of a seizure for some people.

The closest thing to kidnapping is that some workers are taken by force to a different part of the complex and put in a room where they are killed.

Several instances of this, some being normal vomit, once regurgitating a sedative (which it's then implied that someone else unknowingly eats) and - spoilers - a living creature.

As above, technically no, but the premise of the film is that the protagonist is mentally assessing a man who may or may not be sane. They have regular sessions in the holding cell where he is kept isolated.

Technically they're not in a hospital setting, but one character is in a room that's set up to be reminiscent of that. The patient is unconscious, strapped to monitors, and there is other medical equipment nearby.

A minor character is mentioned to have it and later the characters bring this up again when it inspires an idea. No treatment or anything else related to cancer is shown.

There is a short moment of white flashing lights when the creature moves to attack the human in the spacesuit. (They increase the brightness of the strip lighting overhead). It is a few seconds long and ends when they pull her out.

A boy is called "that" and referred to with it/its pronouns. He is physically disabled, and the person misgendering him is dehumanizing him because of his disability. A woman is also referred to with he/him pronouns occasionally.

The end is more bittersweet than sad. It might not be happy, but it is definitely not a sad one.
