We had a little bit with scenarios but nothing major on my course.

Fair question. When dealing with patients on secure pysch units, we're occasionally required to remove them from their rooms. For some odd reason, they're not always willing to cooperate with that plan, so I was thinking that learning some tactics would benefit our guys & gals.
Also, some genius decided that the psych room in our ER needed to be renovated, and it now bears a striking resemblance to a prison cell - stainless steel toilet, stainless steel sink, and a lovely stretcher that MH patients can use as a battering ram to try and crash their way out. Can't wait until someone gets their head bounced off the sink.....
The old room was completely empty except for the bed, which was bolted to the floor to prevent the aforementioned battering ram scenario.
Gotta love progress.
