Giving a shower to a cat
It will heal.
Management's response: "You shouldn't go near the patients."
Bedside care has officially ended? Now can I telecommute?
The other response: "Why don't you keep her nails short?"
See above response- I should not go near the patients. Manic, violent patients don't take well to having manicures or any personal hygiene performed on them. Have you ever tried to give a shower to a cat? Same idea. Also, this patient is violently out of control because she does not take her medication and you can't force a patient to take medication if they refuse. Same rule applies to the nail cutting, so that is why she can run around with dagger nails, clawing people.
