    Creepy inmates

    I've survived my first week in corrections. I've really learned a lot in just a few days. My facility has great officers and medical.

    I've been doing nurses sick call. Today was my first day solo. I didn't have an issue until one inmate from the camp came in. I signed his pass- he repeated my name a few times and asked how long I've been a nurse. I told him "for a while." He kept badgering and badgering me about the exact years and asked 'why are you here?'

    I don't know why- but I didn't feel comfortable giving him my history. It's public knowledge via the internet about how long I've been a nurse- it really isn't a big deal. But I just didn't want to tell HIM.

    This guy really creeped me out. It made the little hairs on my neck stand straight up. Is it normal to get this feeling?

    Uh yes. He is creepy. It does not matter if it is public knowledge or not, he should not be asking you. It is none of his business. If he REALLY wants the info, he will get it but at least make him work for it.

    Next time, tell him just that. I am a nurse. I am here to treat you. If you need other information you can get it later, but I am here to do ................... whatever it is he are there for that time.

    If he persists ask if he is refusing medical treatment. Because if he will not focus on his medical reason for being there, sounsd like a refusal to me.

    But then again, I am not a nurse. Nor do I work where you do. MIght be best if you talked to your supervisor. He is most likely feeling you out to find out how far he can gow ith you and if he can compromise you. Don't take no crap to begin with and you won't get near as much later on!
    Never argue with idiots. They will take you to their level and beat you with experience.

    (necessary to remind myself as I am encountering more of them lately)

    Tell them NOTHING.
    Go back and re-read Downing of a Duck--------------then put that question he asked into perspective.

    He has no business knowing anything about you other than your name.

    If the inmate doesn't "move along" after you have given him what he is allowed (his pills etc) and keeps badgering you after you have told him to move along-----------------------talk to either your supervisor, a line nurse that you trust, or one of the security staff assigned to the Infirmary.

    In my house--------------------a CO or Lieutenant would be having a face to face with the idiot telling him that he needs to mind his own business. There is no second chance here------------------next time he goes to lockup. If the hairs on my neck tingle when I am talking to him the first time-------he might go to lock up the first time!



    Remember you are NOT in the "public sector" anymore. Your job has changed dramatically since leaving a hospital setting.
    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

    I don't know it all, I know a little about a lot and a lot about a little. Forgive me if I fail to remain completely objective.
    All opinions are mine----only mine---and do not carry the weight of my department.

    Never argue with idiots- They just drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    Re: Creepy inmates

    Tell him to shut up and either take his meds or to screw off. When my convicts begin asking questions I lock them back up and tell medical to move on to the next one. They don't need to know anything that isn't related to their medical issue. Our convicts like to talk to new nurses to memorize their voices and I'm sure you can figure out why.

    Re: Creepy inmates

    Thanks you guys. I was alone in a room with him at NSC. I feel that I handled the situation appropriately, it was just the feeling I had. The CO in the infirmary was just outside the door- I felt safe... it was just creepy. I didn't let my voice sway at all and totally kept a poker face. Hopefully the creep won't come back for a while. I won't be assigned to camp duty until after I come back from the academy- by then I should have some more experience under my belt.

    Thanks for listening and not making me feel like a freak!

    Listen to the little hairs on the back of your neck, they will not lead you astray!
    When YOU are done with him, ie... when he ticks you off or makes you feel creeped out, tell him to kick rocks and move on to the next thug.
    Don't feel bad for them they are just trying to manipulate you and see how far they can go with you. anyone honestly seeking treatment would be all about that and nothing else.

    He was feeling you out, the first step in becoming comprimised. You stopped him good. Mention it to your charge nurse and maybe he can have some inside wire time. Remember the only difference between a camper and an inside inmate is usually the quality of the lawyer and what they got caught with. A felon is still a felon.

    Stand your ground with those idiots. Call the Lt. or someone else when it gets to that point but be sure to show them you are not going to be intimidated. He was trying to push you, since he probably knew you were new. Just keep going in the same direction!

    Re: Creepy inmates

    Prisoners will always try to find out information about staff. They are only human and most times its just innocent curiosity. However, you did the right thing as some have a darker motive. My advice is as already stated on here to just tell them you are not answering, in a polite manner. They will probably persist and take the hump however, thats the sort of people they are and thats why they are inside! Good luck.
