Nursing at Riggs is different from many other psychiatric settings. In this video series, Riggs nursing staff members engage in conversation about the challenging and rewarding work they do in a completely open and voluntary setting. 

In the video below, Primary Charge Nurse Diane Heckman, RN; Mental Health Worker Brian O'Gara; and Mental Health Worker Jennifer Morse reflect on the “special kind of relationship between staff and patients” the open setting requires.
