Ethics speaks of morality and appropriate behavior, but may not be binding on a individual. However, when it comes to medical ethics, those standards are necessary (not desirable) on the basis on which a practitioner is required to act. Country-specific laws dictate the ethical aspects of health care, which in effect are regulated by medical ethics. (Bipata R., 2019). There are few ethical principles to be followed by psychiatric nurses to safeguard themselves. Nurses should value the rights of the patients and take right intervention as well as decisions at the right time. The knowledge of the nurse related to legal issues in advanced practice and minimizing risk of litigation in psychiatric nursing is essentials.
