I work in an inpatient Psychiatric Unit in a large inner city teaching hospital. We have both involuntary and voluntary patients. We used the primary nursing as our model but now that we are 12 hour shifts that's really not working out for my unit. Please share your thoughts or what models do you use in your hospitals/units? My manager was thinking modular nursing model of care but I personally think that will not work as well because our patients are ambulatory and they are constantly pacing the hallways and for some reason I cannot see that working on my unit. Your thoughts, comments and recommendations are truly appreciated.
