Nursing instructor talks about dealing with an out-of-control patient

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, November 21, 2012

Ann Fallon, both a nursing instructor and psychoanalyst at The College of NJ, helps her students learn how to deal with a bipolar patient who has been brought into a hospital and is insisting on being released. In her lessons, Ms. Fallon uses a simulated patient dubbed "Andrea Warhol" to help her students learn how to deal with a bipolar patient who has been brought into a hospital and is insisting on being released. For the simulation, Ms. Fallon wanted to give her students a vivid experience of what it is like to deal with a patient who is talking nonstop, has grandiose ideas about herself and her importance to the world, and resists treatment.
