I am a nurse manager for a Behavioral Health Unit. Recently, I have found a more challenging group of patients enter our unit. These folks usually have dual diagnosises and cause an increased rate of recidivism which is extremely frustrating for my staff. The patients are coming in trying to sneak by contraband of all sorts. My staff are leaving which is causing short staffing. I do have the support of upper management. The patient population is so smart. Anyone out there experiencing similar situations?
