Psych Pts & Medical Pts. Housed together

  1. Recently, My place of employment has started housing Medical pts and Psych pts together on the same unit. Somehow, this doesnt sound right. Due to the ever present demand for beds, which we dont have enough of, the Dr.s and Heads decided to house them together. This seems to be a voilation of confedentiality as well as a risk to the medical pts. who have nurses taken care of them who do not normally take care of med. pts. Anybody have a comment on this.??
