A Unique Psychiatric Nursing Approach

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 discuss the unique way in which nursing is engaged in “a partnership with the patients.”

Check back next week to watch Video 3 - Nursing Care at the Austen Riggs Center: A Relational Approach.
