User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I would be able to cope with a patient that overdoses if I follow all steps to assist patient accordingly.
2.
It has to be difficult, but I would remind myself of everything I did right rather than everything I did not do.
3.
Sometimes an overdose can be rock bottom for clients and the thing they need to make them realize they have to chose between staying out and face the strong possibility of dying or getting clean and learning to live. In the event the client does not survive the OD you grieve and recognize more than ever that you are dealing with disease none are immune from and share that experience to try and reach others.
4.
As in dying? I guess it would be sad. I would debrief with my coworker and supervisor. Give myself time to mourn and grieve. Mb fall back on my spirituality and art.
5.
Being from Chicago and working with children, its saddening for me, simply because they needed help and maybe our services was too late or I may feel something else could have prevented this, but it does happen.
