Well said! A great reminder of why I continue as a "psych" nurse (inpatient) even though I often overhear comments about how it isn't "real" nursing and we just "babysit the crazies". I also have several family members with mental health issues so I can empathize with my patient's and their families. Unfortunately it seems that many of the newer generation entering this area of nursing see only the diagnosis and forget that there is a human being with feelings and worth connected to the diagnosis. I intend to print your the story of "Bev" and put it on the message board in the break room at work with the hope that it will help improve the care and practice on our small impatient unit.
More than unprofessional...what about confidentiality? The nurse has a photo of your vitals, is there a photo of you also? I would have immediately reported this to her supervisor!
