Auditory hallucination is a real and unique experience that nobody would be able to comprehend except for the patient himself. Such unpredictable symptoms would often traumatize the patient, making them feeling at a loss. Sometimes, they could even hurt themselves or others since they can not distinguish hallucination from reality. Many of these patients would often go for psychiatric treatments, hence it is essential for nursing staff at psychiatric wards to understand and evaluate auditory hallucination. Moreover, healthcare providers should know how to use cognitive or self-help techniques to help the patient to overcome the disturbance from their hallucinations. This would relieve the patients from their suffering and improve their quality of life.
