sinking (Johnson, N.D). This recommendation definitely could have helped us, providing a solid base for the ladder to bear weight on. Jason post There was a situation at my healthcare facility where we had a psych patient who has caused physical bodily harm in the past. This patient was extremely agitated quick to anger. One day the patient was trying to be physical with the nursing and therapy staff. The patient should have been left alone to calm down, instead the staff was unsuccessfully interacting with the patient. Luckily, no injuries were caused. The hazard existed because staff was not prepared or trained to work with psych patients, nor was there any procedure in place in case a staff member or another patient gets attacked.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
