I have a few...
1. Not being ordered around by the pt or the family because of some "customer service" model of care that the hospital created. It's a prison, not a dayspa and it is well understood that you will get what you need and that it is not necessarily equal to what you want.
2. Real gratitude for the care I provide. Oddly enough the inmates tend to be more grateful for their care than the general population. Maybe because so many of them never actually had real health care until they ended up behind bars.
3. Lots of humor. Inmates say the darnedest things. Like trying to get their health care worked around their tv schedule, faking sz's, CP,being unconscious or other symptoms. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't laugh at least a few times at the level of ridiculousness of things that inmates do.
4. Actual consequences if they are being disrespectful towards staff. Yelling, swearing and being unruly is not tolerated. Sometimes, it seems that prison is a glorified day care. There is punishment involved and they know it.
5. A wide array of health issues that you won't often see in a hospital or nursing home setting.
That's all I can think of for now
