I work in a small town hospital ,my unit is the designated pediatric unit. and we all have our PALS and our clearances and etc.
Our unit also takes a variety of other patients. Last week I got a male medical pt. in his 30's with no significant medical history other than an undisclosed psych history.
He was on multiple psych meds but also Depo Provera.
Other than for cancer my co workers and I could not come up with any other reason for a man to be on this med with the exception to chemical sterilization.
Point is we had 6 pediatric patients on the unit all post-op T & A's 4 of them young girls so we asked if there was A history of the Depo pt. being a sexual predator and we were told that it was not our concern that alarms me greatly.
What are your thoughts?
Peace .......... Billy
