restraints [Jul. 10th, 2007|05:05 pm]
Psychiatric Nursing


[mood |draineddrained]

There were two patients at the psych ward i work at in 4 point restraints today.. all the screaming..crying.. it was just too much for me and i broke down in tears. =(. i agreed that the restraints were necessary to prevent violence, but so much fricken suffering =(.

what do you guys think about restraints?.. i believe they are a necessary evil. and how do you emotionally deal with 1:1 these people while in restraints.. it was so hard not to talk to them and be nurturing.

it is times like this where i begin to question my future career in psych nursing =(.
thank you
