  • Wondering if anyone here has ever had to work with, treat someone with psychosis? They are often labile, violent, self harming or harming others due to the various hallucinations they are having. There are a myriad of reasons for their psychosis ranging from off their meds to taking illicit drugs. Do YOU think this person is able to have good judgement? Do YOU think their rights are violated when a nurse fills out an application for involuntary admission so they don’t wander outside walk into traffic or slice themselves to pieces because of the demons screaming at them? When they are living in apartments filthy with human excrement, should they go back from whence they came or should a facility attempt to make connections for a living facility? Should we let them leave AMA to be picked up by police & brought to ED again & again? Think before you make decision — Just because a writer is a PHD does not make them the “end all” authority — many perspectives must be considered.
