Hi from NZ


Recommended Posts


I'm a Registered Nurse working in an acute psychiatric inpatient setting and love tattoos. I have 3 myself, working on adding another couple in the next month.

I joined this forum due to an awesome thread I read on here where everyone was (shock horror!) respectful and mature. It made my day. Had to join after that!

Hey Stacey. Great intro.

I'm from Brisbane, Australia. I too work Health Care, but as an industry trainer which includes restraint & seclusion in Acute Mental Health Units for 4 large Metro Hospitals here.

Hope ya staying safe!


I was scheduled to have Restraint and seclusion training next month but it conflicted with my graduation. They are trying really hard to not only minimise but to eliminate using seclusion all together in our DHB, it's a sticky issue. Lots of nurses are scared they will get hurt if they throw seclusion out... but then again lots of nurses use seclusion inappropriately because they are afraid.
