im a danish nurse working at a adulte pscyhiatry unit.
i would like to ask you, US nurses or nurses working in the US, whether you have a so called morning gathering with the patients, where one can meet new patients and/or staff, make structure for patients, inform them about what is going to happend during the day and so on.
how do you implement this?
do the patients must take part or it is up to each patient to decide?
if they dont want to participate voluntary, how do you make them to change their minds?
here in Denmark, or at least at my unit, morning gathering is considered a part of the nursing treatment and patients must/should participate, however sometimes is difficult...
