Protective Services and Restraints In-service
I was not very clear on what restraints we were allowed to use and how, in the event of encountering an aggressive or violent patient. This in-service taught me how to use the restraining devices safely, and how much restraint to use. This makes more confident in my ability to deal with an aggressive or violent patient. I am now confident that I will be able to use the restraints appropriately, with minimum discomfort to my patients while still ensuring their safety and the safety of others.
Self-learning through Research
In preparation of my first practicum in the neurosciences unit, I researched all the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology related to illness/trauma on a neurosciences unit. I used my school online database, and my anatomy textbook to obtain the relevant information. This enabled me to have a better understanding of the disease processes and illnesses to expect on the unit, and thus I was better prepared to handle the workload.
