    Mental health hospitalization

    Any nurses ever been hospitalized due to fleeting suicide ideation? I’m terrified. I was in a severely Abusive relationship for a couple years. I called 911 on my ex because He was going to kill me if I did not do something. He was taken to jail. Right away, I entered therapy. I’ve been going consistently since (Almost 2 years). I had a breakdown last month because he started harassing me and stalking me again. I called my therapist and spoke with her awhile, I told her it would be easier if I didn’t exist. She was concerned because she never heard me breakdown. She wanted the police to do a welfare check on me, however I wasn’t at my home at the time. They petitioned a 302 warrant. I cooperated. The police allowed me to drive back home and them go in the hospital. If they really thought I was that big of a threat, why did they let me drive? Never attempted, never had a plan. I was able to sign a 201 afterwards. This was an isolated incident. I’ve received legal counsel, now it’s a waiting game. Has anyone else been through this? My job has never been affected in anyway. Great job performance reviews and character references. No patient complaints, no medical errors. I’m in grad school with a 3.8 gpa. I’m terrified.
  2. If you are still on the site, what ended up happening? Did you have a lawyer?

    What does my future hold?

    I immediately went for an evaluation when this all started. I was told by rehab that I didn’t have an issue and they signed me off. I have been seeing a therapist for nearly a year at this point. Also, I’m taking a month of work to get myself straight. I think all of this would look good to the board and show them that I am on track. I simply had a bad breakdown.

    No, my hospitalization was recent.

    Thank you for your kind words, it means a lot to me. Do you happen to know how the Hospitalization could affect me? My lawyer seems to be more concerned with that than anything.

    A few questions...

    I was assigned **** ******. He is a new person apparently. If you don’t mind Answering, what kind of psych history do you have? I’ve been in therapy and have been doing better. I was thinking of having my therapist write a letter on my behalf. My attorney told me to say no to pnap from the start so that’s what I did. Also, is seeking health on your own such a bad thing? Did you give a written statement about your situation? We’re you actively seeking treatment ?

    Mental and Sub Abuse Eval in Pa

    Anyone go through this in Pa? what questions were asked, what was it like? I have a diagnosis of ptsd and anxiety which I have been in outpatient for months. I have a lawyer. I don’t drink or do drugs. I have outstanding references as well as a great resume. Can they really get me for getting mental help?

    What does my future hold?

    Hello all, I’ll cut to the chase. Please, don’t beat me up. I have been through enough. I had a positive drug test for thc. I know I messed up, I hate myself for it enough. I was extremely tired after working night shift and was questioned. I took the drug test because I thought I would be fine since it was a one time deal about a week prior. I have been fine since. This has been months ago. I do not drink or do any drugs. Never had any issues with medications, never had an error. I’ve been taking drug tests monthly to help with my case.. my attorney suggested it. I’m worried about disclosing my psych history even though I’ve been going to therapy since before my “incident.” I have a history of a voluntary hospitalization from bad ptsd from an abusive relationship and anxiety since my last license renew. I now have to sign over my mental health records. My work has never been affected by my ptsd or anxiety. If anything, it takes my mind off of it. I have plenty of evidence to show the board that I am a great nurse. Also, I have other healthy coping skills too; exercise, yoga, etc.  I am afraid that reaching out for help is what will screw me in the end. My attorney was veryoptimistic until I disclosed my mental health information to him. I’m in grad school too and I’m afraid that this will ruin school for me if they decide to do something to my license. does anyone have any advice? I’m an anxious mess and I did this all to myself.

    Cgritz77 I am going through something similar in PA and I’m worried about disclosing my psych history even though I’ve been going to therapy since before my “incident.” I have a history of a hospitalization from bad ptsd from an abusive relationship and anxiety. Did you hire a nurse attorney? Or just a dui attorney? Did you report your dui or did you get a letter from the board? And just curious, what part of the state are you from.. trying to see if I may run into the same doc for my eval. I’m closer to Pittsburgh. I had a positive drug test for thc. I know I messed up, I hate myself for it enough. But I have been fine since. I do not drink or do any drugs. I’ve been taking drug tests monthly to help with my case.. my attorney suggested it. I am afraid that reaching out for help is what will screw me in the end. My attorney was very optimistic until I disclosed my mental health information to him.
