> I am a nursing student currently doing a clinical rotation at a state mental hospital. I have searched far and wide for information on the legal aspects of Psychiatric Nursing. Any assistance in locating information on this subject will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Wayne

Wayne -
I'm very interested in your question. I am a graduate student in nursing at the university of massachusetts and for my final semester I will be developing models for teaching legal aspects to nursing students and nurses. I have practiced health law for 15 years and that helped shape my interest in developing a model. It's been my impression that nurses want information but lack resources. The ones I've come across tend to frighten and obfuscate issues. I am very interested in finding out more about what you want to know. Would you be willing to send me an email with your thoughts - what are the situations which trigger your concerns, what resources do you see in your setting, any other thoughts you might have. I look forward to hearing from you (and any other nurse or nursing student who might provide input. Thanks a lot.
