A psychiatric client asks, “Are we at my apartment in New York City? I don’t want to leave my room because I’m afraid of getting mugged!” What is the LPN’s best response?
“It sounds like you are feeling scared or anxious. We are not at an apartment in New York, we are at a hospital in Seattle, Washington.”
“Tell me a little more about how you’re feeling. Did you have an apartment in New York once?”
“No, we are in a hospital in Seattle, Washington. Why are you worried about being mugged? Have you been mugged before?”
“Are you feeling anxious? Don’t worry, you are safe and I won’t let anything bad happen to you.”
