I work in the ER and when we have a troublesome patient, we call security to watch the patient. The hospital contracts with a security firm and by and large the security guys (and a couple gals) are not very scary looking. The most imposing is a tall, retired cop who looks close to 80. The rest are out of shape fellows who aren't smart enough to ever get into the police academy.What really bugs me is when, knowing very little about the patient, they start being the patient advocate. Yesterday I had a psychotic schizophrenic sent by the psyche facility for medical clearance after he became out of control and started attacking staff there. This one little security guy began bugging us for pain medicine for this fellow's imaginary stomach cancer. Then he told the patient that we'd be bringing it. The fellow finally had a meltdown and had to be put into leathers.We have one security gal who we all agree has Stockholm Syndrome when she is watching a patient. She'll come reporting pain, symptoms, she'll start diagnosing, always siding with the obviously problematic patient, otherwise we wouldn't be needing her. She escalates any situation. Anyone encounter this problem?
