Body image may be a complex phenomenon that emphasizes an individual’s mental perception and attitudes towards their appearance. Disturbances in one’s body image is a common outcome when undergoing extensive surgeries which result in an altered physical appearance.

Despite JB expressing his dislike of being placed in seclusion, nursing and medical staff agreed JB’s capacity to make an informed autonomous decision was impaired due to his current mental distress. Roberts (2004) states that the paternalism in mental health is rationalized through the concept that mental illness can inhibit a persons’ competency and ability to act autonomously in the governance of their care and therefore principles of beneficence and non-maleficence must be introduced to ensure that person receives adequate care. Prinsen & van Delden (2009) also argue that coercive measures such as seclusion can be necessary in reclaiming personal autonomy and control. However this paternalistic viewpoint of overruling a patient’s autonomy is arguable especially if a person is deemed incompetent due to their mental illness. Szasz believed mental illness was mythical and the introduction of a diagnosis was merely to label social deviancy from social norms.

In particular, sitting, lifting, extending, and moving the patient to the side of the bed were not done correctlyby the nurses.

CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND INTRODUCTION Physical therapists, or PTs, are health care professionals who can help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility - in many cases without expensive surgery and often reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.
