I was looking at an old "ad" for thorazine.
why was it ok back then to treat these pts, but not now? We get blamed for them falling. They pull out their iv, foley, feeding tube, etc. they punch, kick and bite and scream att the top of their lungs. And we get blamed for their behavior. Bed alarm my butt- yep, i get a brief warning they are getting up just in time for me to get to their room to see them fall.
Things must have been better in the old days- when this stuff wasn't allowed.
