Abusive Psychiatric Patient Restrained, Placed In Seclusion For Angering Nursing & Medical Staff? #Nurseup #Abuse #MHSM #MH #nursefriendly

Abusive Psychiatric Patient Restrained, Placed In Seclusion For Angering Nursing & Medical Staff? Summary: In dealing with violent, abusive or angry psychiatric patients, the safety of the patient and staff are the priority concerns. When restraints or seclusion are deemed necessary, justification for the measures must be documented concisely. In this case, an unruly patient angered the nurse caring for him. When leather restraints were applied and maintained for a prolonged period of time, the patient would object and later sue for damages.
