With the recent restrictions on psychotropic medications, communities find themselves struggling with a resurgence in unwanted resident behaviors that in the past may have been managed more by anti-psychotics. In every facility across the country, there is in every unit, that everyone sighs when the light is lit or when staff is assigned to their care. It’s that one person that is hard to please… unreasonable… or has periods of yelling, screaming and throwing things.
It isn’t all of the time and there is no way that you can predict the behavior. Instead of avoiding those residents, a progressive approach can improve the situation.

- The best way to investigate to resolve the issue?
