Further assessments lead the psychiatric mental health team to recommendthat Emma agree to a 72-hour inpatient visit to stabilize her current condition. The team would work with her to ensure that her and her children’s needs are being met and to explore ongoing treatment options as well as social, psychiatric, and other services. Emma agrees and arranges for a church member to keep her children during that time. Later that night, though, she changes her mind and approaches the night nursing staff about checking herself out. The nurse on duty discourages her; when Emma then asks to take her cell phone back to her room to call her brother, the nurse says, “Why don’t you stay here at the station while you make your call.” Emma becomes very angry and anxious, so the nurse isn’t sure if she should hand her the phone in that condition. The nurse tries to give her an oral sedative to help her calm down awhile before making her call, but Emma pushes it angrily away and says, “I’m not leaving this spot until I can talk to my brother!” What should the nurse do in this situation? What recourse does she have when this patient will not comply with requests and, more significantly, refuses her medication?Health ScienceScienceNursing HUMAN SCIE MISC
