:chuckle Not neuro, but in the neighborhood: I've spent years trying to convince the rest of the psych nursing community that we should develop a series of Public Service Announcements for TV and radio on "Ways You Should Not Bother Trying to Kill Yourself, Because They Won't Work" ...
Had Anatomy with an EMT for a lab partner. We just don't see most of the gunshots to the head, only the ones that don't work. Not that I'm recommending it.
I start my psych rotation Monday. Hope it isn't horrible. Do look forward to seeing my friends in EMT, though. Most should be due for a little "rest".

You know that a "floor bed" does NOT refer to an empty bed somewhere in your ward. And you DO believe in them - you do you do!!!
You believe that there are patients who look on bed rails the same way that Hilary looked on Everest and with the same determination.
Bed rails just give them extra height to fall from.
Houdini had nothing on a Little old Lady with a chronic subdural!!!
When it comes to restraints some patients actually need to be superglued to the mattress and THEN they would still manage to escape!!!
