Nursing Styles

As hospice nurses meet client’s during end of life care, there are different approaches needed for different situations.

One approach is the wait and see, gain their trust and go really slow in recommendations of care.  Beating around the bush can help facilitate seeing the elephant in the room.

Another approach would be the direct, cards on the table, address the facts and answer the questions.

What’s beautiful, is when you see both of these styles wrapped in compassion.  It’s truly amazing.  You would see a vulnerability and a crucial turning point for dying clients and their families.
