Feedback: a. Rationale: The nurse should meet with the client as soon as possible to determine the need for crisis stabilization. Clients with SPMI are at risk for acute exacerbations of an illness. This may be particularly true during times of stress or transition. In any case, this population requires access to acute assessment and treatment services as part of a package of community support including 24-hour emergency and crisis units and outreach programs. Rescheduling the appointment for weeks away may lead to other complications and the opportunity to assess the situation completely is lost if the client does not return in that time. There are no grounds for involuntary commitment (harm to self or others, inability to care for self). Canceling the client’s managed care plan without making other arrangements for the client’s health care is unethical and unnecessary.
