Mentalhealth MD5. Remaining Calm
There are times when a nurse must provide care for a client who is agitated and verbally or physically aggressive. The client may be psychotic, but the nurse must, in each case, remain in control of his/her own feelings, and intervene in the most appropriate manner.
After watching a segment regarding a violent client at Bellevue Hospital, answer the questions below. It’s not necessary to critique the staff in the video, just think of how you might respond.
· Describe a time when a client was rude or verbally abusive to you. How did you react?
· What skills were necessary to maintain a professional, caring, therapeutic relationship?
· How did you best communicate with this client?
· What did you learn from this experience?
