Mental health nursing students need to understand their legal duties towards all clients, including specific laws for care of detained patients. Yet these laws can be comples, confusing, and difficult to relate to the reality of nursing care. This book is a clear guide to the Mental Health Act and Code of Practice which explains the specific duties, responsibilities and powers of mental health nurses and the care of detained patients in particular. It explains the most frequently encountered parts of the Act and Code and clarifies common misunderstandings. It outlines dilemmas faced by nurses which may arise from possible conflicting responsibilities. It also gives an introduction to other major legal considerations that mental health nursing students need.
