Too much fun!

Then I read this piece from Maria. Here's a quote:
"Consider striking the word “manipulative” from your vocabulary. Just describe what people are doing. “She says that she will kill herself if I don’t give her Vicodin” is a lot more informative than “She’s manipulative”. Furthermore, brainstorming ideas and conferring with others (including the patient) to solve this dilemma is much easier when everyone knows the specific details of the dilemma. How does one solve a problem around an adjective?"
Aha! Of course. You can't make a measureable outcome in the care plan for manipulation. :)
