I took care of a prisoner yesterday with her own personal guard. The guard requested a phone in the room so she could check in every hour with her facility. Several of the staff told me not to do this. They said our policy was to not let prisoners talk on phones and the guard would have to go to the nurses station to use the phone. There is no written policy. I felt that the guard should say what the patient was allowed to do regarding phone privileges and I really didn't want the guard at the nurses station Q1H. Any thoughts?
