    i was the evening nurse for 60 psych patients as a new grad. first time i saw medication side effect of high fever. first time i had to deal with post lobotomy pts. you could get lost in all the delusional systems intertwined in those pts. one of our most paranoid tried to buy a gun through the mail. (you could back then). i have often wondered if we would have survived if the head nurse did not open his mail and deny his right to privacy.
