STUDY ON THE MANAGEMENT OF ICU PSYCHOSIS AMONG NURSES- NIMS, HYDERABAD, TELANGANA

Supriya Ponnuru, Sailaja B.

Abstract


The objective of the present study is to assess the knowledge regarding management of ICU Psychosis among 50 Staff Nurses working in NIMS Hospital, Hyderabad. The intensive care unit leads to a variety of psychiatric complications. Their physiologic concomitants can endanger life. The special environment of these units can be quite stressful to patients and staff. The Intensive care units, which are sophisticated, mechanized and dehumanizing critical care environment is still remaining a challenge to the nurses. They have to monitor patients closely to identify subtle changes that warrant immediate interventions. Nurses should be able to interpret, integrate and respond to a wide array of clinical information. Nurses should have sound knowledge about clinical pharmacological, and environment factor in the Intensive care setting, as these are potential factors to cause dangerous psychological disturbances among critically ill patients.
