Responding to medical and mental health emergencies in the correctional setting is something that happens nearly every day. Yet, academia has yet to address special correctional nursing considerations to responding to such emergencies. This course will focus on the collaborative effort that is needed between medical and security during medical and mental health emergencies. The topics covered will include discussion on correctional nursing, vulnerable populations, responding to emergency basics, how to respond to ligatures, over doses, self-inflicted cutting, insertions/ingestions, seizures, anaphylaxis, reported sexual assaults, chest pain, fires, diabetic emergencies, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, restraint assessment, and ending with mass casualty and triage considerations and secondary trauma growth with clinical well-being.
