Some patients, especially Lisa, are able to hide the medicine she is supposed to take, although, in real life it is common for psychiatric nurses to make sure to do tongue checks so they are still taking their medications. Furthermore, treatment in the movie is portrayed both in realistic and non-realistic ways. Before a retired psychologist sends Susanna to the hospital, he makes it seem like hospitalization is the only option for her. The psychologist claims that she “need[s] a rest” and that she is “hurting everyone around [her].” Not only are there plenty of options for treatment, this makes it seem like the treatment is not for Susanna, but for her loved ones.

In some instances, the woman has to deal with postpartum depression. This was true for the narrator in “The Yellow Wall-Paper.” The narrator states, “It is fortunate Mary is so good with the baby. Such a dear baby! And yet I cannot be with him, it makes me so nervous.” (Gilman 77). The narrator is currently unable to take care of her own child, one of her main responsibilities in life, because of her postpartum depression.
Her language, especially when taking age differences into consideration, infantilized Dr. Rose and reflected a lack of concern for the wellbeing of the patient. Chrissy's socio-emotional skills need immediate attention if the practice intends to retain her employment following this incident. Though, it could be argued that the problem began at the level of the receptionist, as well. Dr. Rose carefully listed her allergies on her intake form, including her recently discovered allergy to chlorhexidine. This allergy should have been noted on her patient history regardless, given that her allergy was discovered in-office the previous summer.

Nurse did not pay attention when patient came to the window and cried. Nurse keep focusing on her work and she ignore her so I felt like I should talk with her. Therefore, I choose her for the patient interview. Later I got to know that she is suffering from the severe bipolar disorder with acute delusions, so she kept forgetting things.

Extensive testing was done, to the point that she had been pricked enough times for her scrawny left arm to bruise so badly she couldn’t move it. After days of waiting anxiously by the phone, it rang, the husband picked it up and answered. A voice that sounded much like the nurse they had seen at the doctor’s office said, “I am sorry sir but after extensive testing we were able to conclude that your wife does indeed have Alzheimer’s, we believe the best way for her to get treatment is if you check her into a nur-“ The husband of the little old lady cut her off, “No, no that’s fine.
