Sometimes I have put pt's on their stomachs. It is not always a way of doing this but I do understand your frustration. I have been in predicaments and I always call the "Alpha-Dog" on the unit be it supervisor, old timer, or just the person who can give you good advise. I do not know how your facility might choose to interpret your action but CYA ...most important thing as well as pt care. If this pt needed this treatment and was able to sign themselves in ...I would hope things would go in favor of his care. GOD BLESS!

foro the purpose of your paper you want to include what "rights" the family has in this case, if any at all. I wonder why the MD did not order a sedative or tranquilizer. Sounds to me like the assessment was not very inclusive.

And for the purpose of your paper, talk about A&Ox4. That is usually not descriptive of a patient who is continually pulling things out. Alert, oriented to self and place, exhibiting inappropriate behaviors, unable and/or unwilling to follow plan of care. As the above poster pointed out, there is something amiss with the assessment. Or the assessment was spot on, and now there's a HUGE change in MS.

I'm going to take all this into consideration. Didn't think I would get these many responses. Thanks all!
