:typing I'm developing an inservice program for correctional nurses about the dangers of 'labeling' inmates. For example, always assuming that the inmate is 'faking' the health issue (although we know that many times this is true!). If a nurses do this one time too many it could lead to a case of negligence or even malpractice.
I was wondering if any of you have any stories to tell about times when a 'faker' turned out to be a real issue and how you dealt with it.
Appreciate your comments and thoughts on this issue.
PS - I will only be using the information from this thread very generally and not refer to any specifics in the inservice
