What kind of protocol exists (if any) on your units AFTER a staff member has been assaulted by a patient? Here is what I need to know. if you can help me with any parts, I would be thankful.
Is the patient removed and secluded for some time?
Is the patient assigned to another staff member?
Is the CNM/director notified?
Is there a debriefing?
Is there security on the unit? how many?
How does admin handle it?
