It was an honor to lead a workshop this month at the Custody and Care Conference in Saskatoon. Participants reflected on the moral nature of their work and how to maintain balance in their nursing practice. As nurses in correctional and psychiatric facilities set aside personal judgments to provide care for persons in custody, they also set boundaries to ensure safety and security of their patients and themselves. The article, “Respect in forensic psychiatric nurse-patient relationships: A practical compromise.” by Rose, D., Peter, E., Angus, J. & Liaschenko, J. in a 2011 issue of Journal of Forensic Nursing, 7: 3-16 highlights the importance of protecting one’s own well-being in this work.
