Psychiatric nurses provide direct care to their patients which include facilitating, supervising and dispensing prescribed medication and evaluating the patient’s progress.
Relatives are encouraged to visit often and to engage nursing and other staff members in treatment plans and expected outcomes.
Regular, sometimes daily community meetings chaired by patients are facilitated by the nursing staff. During these meetings, patients air their grievances, compliments or any other views they might have. Such meetings not only give a sense of ownership but also dignity to all the patients.
Relatives are encouraged to interact with members of staff as often as they can. Regular visits are evidence of love and affection and both promote healing.
