Abstract: Nurses in psychiatric settings have an important role to play in the application of seclusion, a measure that continues to be a frequently used intervention for the management of disturbing patient behaviours. Albeit a controversial measure, isolating patients remains a common institutional practice that has received widespread attention from a political, ethical, legal, and clinical standpoint.

“…As isolation can potentially be used punitively, many countries regulate the use of seclusion rooms to protect against the risk of abuse. Patients' experiences of seclusion in mental health units have been reported to intensify their feelings of being less worthy, of being abandoned or rejected (Holmes et al, 2004). It is worth emphasising that isolation does not require the use of a seclusion room.…”

“…La plupart des études restituent la parole du patient de manière descriptive et rétrospective; par cette démarche, elles apportent des éléments nécessaires à la compréhension du conflit des logiques qui oppose soignés et soignants. Dans la perspective du patient, l'aspect thérapeu-tique de la mise en chambre fermée n'est pas un acquis [5,9]; au contraire, l'isolement est souvent perçu comme une mesure punitive, un moyen de contrôle social où s'intensifient des sentiments déjà présents d'exclusion, de rejet et d'abandon [10]. La perception des patients au sujet de l'isolement n'est cependant pas univoque.…”
