Psychiatric Patients Assaulting Nurses. I will get right to the point, if you are Nurse employed at a facility that is eliminating physically restraining dangerous patients, then get your health and life insurance paid. These ludicrous decisions are made by the leadership who are not in harms way. Did these facilities suddenly come up with a new method to deescalate psychiatric patient who is abusive, threatening and violent? I think NOT!
Your Facility Leadership May be Placing You at Risks
Psychiatric Patients Assaulting Staff. Your leadership obviously doesn’t give a damn about your safety and welfare. If during a violent patient altercation, you sustain a traumatic brain injury or lose your vision is the leadership going to be there for you? Some genius who is not in harms way has determined that it was cruel and inhumane to physically restrain psychiatric patients who are out of control. Staff are now going to be conditioned to try to use verbal de-escalation on psychotic patient who is outside his mind and a potential threat.
I don’t like having to restrain someone but it beats getting physically injured by a dangerous patient. I am not referring to an elderly patient with dementia. I am talking about the 6 foot 250 adolescent or adult male who was brought in by police following smoking Wet (marijuana laced with embalming fluid) or the same size guy who has been off his meds for three months. You can put up any claim you wish that physical restraints don’t work. But I will tell you from having worked as a Registered Nurse in inner city emergency departments, that sometimes it is necessary to restrain patients, and the method is effective. Of course the Nurse has to routinely monitor the patient and check the physical restraints.
The reasons to physically restrain someone was due to a patient who is violent or self-destructive or whose behavior jeopardizes the immediate physical safety of him- or herself or another person may meet the behavioral health requirements for restraints. Examples of such behaviors include:
- hitting, kicking, or pushing
- pulling on an I.V. line, tube, or other medical equipment or device needed to treat the patient’s condition
- attempting to get out of a bed, chair, or hospital room before discharge, in patients who are confused or otherwise unable to follow safety directions.
Before using restraints, always explore alternatives for keeping the patient and others safe. When considering such options, discuss with the patient any conditions that may need to be addressed, such as pain, anxiety, fear, or depression. If distraction and other alternatives prove ineffective at calming the patient and he or she continues to pose a risk, consult with other healthcare team members.

Violence Against Nurses
Psychiatric Patients Assaulting Staff. Violence against nurses is occurring in the news every week. I do empathize that physically restraining a patient is dehumanizing. But given the danger and risks for staff injury, the necessity to physically restrain a patient is far better then the Nurse getting their ass kicked by a deranged patient. It goes right back to the people outside of harms way who are making these stupid executive decisions. If leadership is not going to put in measures to ensure that Nurses are protected then they get ready to be sued.
Its a fact that Nurses are more likely to be injured by assault then a Corrections Officer and Police Officer. Imagine that you the Nurse is working to care for patients and evidence states that you are more likely to incur injury from patient then law enforcement.
Studies show over and over again that violence against healthcare workers has become a rising epidemic.
Violence Against Nurses Higher Than Most Professions
The prevalence of workplace violence in health care remains higher than most professions.
- According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 75 percent of nearly 25,000 workplace assaults reported annually in health care and social service settings.
- The National Crime Victimization Survey showed health care workers have a 20 percent higher chance of being the victim of workplace violence than other workers.
- The American College of Emergency Physicians reported that 70 percent of emergency physicians have reported acts of violence against them, yet only 3 percent pressed charges.
So many people don’t want to talk about it. They think they will be in trouble if they talk at work about being assaulted.
In healthcare, workers provide the safety and care for the patients. But they end up in a conflicted situation. They have to decide if they are going to protect themselves or their patients in certain violent situations, Simpson says.
Nurses feel like it is just part of the job to deal with abusive language, threats and the violence. But patients showing signs of agitation or aggression should be identified as high-risk to prevent an act of violence.
Nurses Say Violent Assaults Against Healthcare Workers Are a Silent Epidemic:
Nurses working in acute care facilities do not deal with steady stream of psychiatric patients and yet they are incurring violence. Can one imagine the frequency of violence that the Nurses working inside psychiatric facilities, which may incur with the advent of the new push to eliminate physical restraints?

James & Michelle Butler – need not be dead, had Federal Justice System competently performed its job.
Federal Justice System Incompetence. Husband and wife both found dead, buried on Padre Island Beach, Corpus Christi area of the State of Texas. James and Michelle Butler, went missing in October 2019. Adam Curtis Williams, age 33, arrested on 11/06/2019 in the State of Jalisco, Mexico. Williams traveling with Amanda Noverr, crossed into Mexico driving the Butlers 2018 Silver Chevrolet Silverado Pickup Truck towing a Cedar Creel RV, which belonged to the Butlers. The media reports that Amanda Noverr, was also traveling with her 3 year old daughter.
INCOMPETENT FEDERAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
William Curtis Adams
Federal Justice System Incompetence. Just Look at the list of the criminal events followed by the absolute incompetence:
(1). Adam Curtis Williams served 8 years in Federal prison for a 2010 Drug Trafficking and Weapons conviction.
(2) He was released from Federal Prison in December 2018.
(3) He violated his Supervised Parole Release 3 Times.
(4) In July 2019, at his Probation Revocation Hearing, the Judge ruled Williams could remain free under Supervised Release.
(5) In August 2019, in the State of Utah, Williams was charged with Domestic Violence and Assault of a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.
(6) In September 2019, Williams was charged with Rape, Sodomy a and Forced Sexual Abuse for an incident that took place in April 2019.
(7). In May 2019, Williams was charged with Possession of Heroin and Drug Paraphernalia.
(8). On October 8, 2019, Williams did not report to the Court Hearing in Utah, for the August 2019 Charges.
(9). Williams is in the Kleberg County Jail, Texas on $1 Million Bail
How could a Federal Judge in good standing, competently justify releasing Williams, after he has violated his Probation 3 Times? Then look what he has done. Where is the common sense and the ethical moral judgement in good faith to protect the citizens?

IN TEXAS, WILLIAMS HAS MET HIS MATCH
In Texas. Criminal Justice Will Be Served
Federal Justice System Incompetence. Adam Curtis Williams has met his match in the State of Texas where Criminal Justice is swift and certain. If convicted of Felony Theft Murder, Williams will receive a well deserved Lethal Injection Cocktail complements of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDJC). His goose is as good as cooked in the State of Texas.
Kleberg County’s Sherriff Department and Prosecutors Office has committed 100% of the efforts to bring all persons involved in James and Michelle Butlers deaths to Justice. One thing, I like about the State of Texas, is that the Criminal System brings its offenders to Justice to answer for their crimes.
Suspects linked to New Hampshire couple’s deaths found in Mexico:
Sexual Predation of Amish and Mennonites. An old world religious culture is a sinister life of secrecy for many of its women members. In this male dominated community where women and girls are treated as property. It is the perfect breeding ground for sex abuse and incest. The sole purpose is perseveration of the Amish and Mennonite communities, which has little exposure to the greater world.
How Sexual Abuse is Handled Within The Community
Sexual Predation of Amish and Mennonites. When a man is discovered to have abused his children, he is shunned for 6 weeks. No one will speak or eat with him in the community. After the 6 weeks of penance and silence, he is forgiven before God and taken back into the church community. He returns home to his house with the children and his spouse. Neither the children nor the spouse are offered any type of protections. Obviously he is not going to stop sexually abusing.
Mrs. Dueck, 48, a mother of five who until recently attended Mennonite churches, launched the organization to provide everything from public education to behind-the-scenes advocacy for abuse victims among the Plain People.
She said that since childhood — when she went to a small Mennonite church school in Kentucky where she counted as many as seven families with victims of sexual abuse — she has seen too many cases covered up by churches. Too many cases where victims were shamed, where girls were blamed as temptresses despite wearing the prescribed coverings and long dresses, where the abused were told to forgive the abusers who made a show of repentance.
She said she started this work “because I am a survivor. I knew that something had to change.”

Our Mennonite Friend
Sexual Predation of Amish and Mennonites. My family bought a Spaniel Puppy named Nigel from a nice Mennonite woman by the name (R). We found the ad online and she had a friend from the mainstream run. We called the phone number on the ad and made arrangements to come see the puppy. To make a long story short, we bought the puppy and he is great little guy. We have returned many times over a course of years. We got to know the (R), her sisters, brothers and parents. (R) is more gregarious and shared how she and her sisters are sexually abused by the male family members. (R) said that because of all the sexual abuse, her younger sister, left the community to go live in the city. Sexual abuse is very rampant in Lancaster County Pennsylvania among the Mennonite and Amish communities. The victims are both adults and children. The predators are family members and members of the community.
Some Predators Have Been Arrested and Prosecuted
The Amish do not educate the children on the basics of sex or good touch versus bad touch. So children are not aware of inappropriate touching or advances. Neither the parents or the community educate their children on known predators and rapist living in their community. One Amish’s story of abuse starting at age 4 and it lasted into her teens:
Torah Bontrager’s betrayal by those closest to her began at age four. In the shielded-from-view world of her Amish community, her ordeal started with severe parental physical and verbal abuse followed by uncles’ serial rapes. At 15, Torah fled to the false safety of a divorced paternal uncle in Montana who, shortly after her arrival, raped her more times than she could remember over the course of 7 months.
