Late Stage Interventions

At later stages along the Crisis Continuum a person may begin showing signs of loss of self-control and problem-solving ability. Verbal and non-verbal interventions can still be effective but additional techniques and precautions should be taken. Your focus now turns to protecting yourself and those around you.

Don't go it alone, enlist the help of Security or colleagues. Be prepared to use your panic device and to physically remove yourself if necessary. Position yourself to exit easily. Remove other patients or visitors from the room. If the person continues to escalate, follow your organization's procedure for immediate response to violent behavior.
