Quote from caregiver1977
I just see elderly dementia patients being sent to the clink. Of course something needs to be done with patients who are violent, even if it is because of a medical condition (known or unknown). I'm just not completely convinced that this will help. By the time everything is sorted out the person's name has been drug through the mud, they could have lost their job, etc...
Caregiver1977, if you consider the number one priority in the problem of health care workers being assualted on the job is that the perpetrator's name not be drug through the mud ... I think there are two possibilities. Either,
1. you only mean this hypothetically, and for some other nurse, not you
2. you're really willing to be someone's punching bag
Not sure what to say to either of these scenarios.
