Personal space intrusion and PTSD.
1. Some clients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are sensitive to having their personal space invaded by health care providers. 2. PTSD patients may react violently to personal space intrusions, such as when a health care provider wakes them suddenly, grabs them without permission, or when they are cornered and staff moves toward them without warning. 3. Through careful assessment and identification of violence as a nursing diagnosis, the nurse not only has information necessary to provide therapeutic intervention, but also has the capability to prevent physical harm to patients and staff.
