MICU Nurse Patient Advocate
I'm Ashtyn, a student nurse. One of my roles as a nurse is to advocate for the patient to ensure comfort when he or she is dying.
"As a patient advocate, the nurse acts as a change agent and a risk taker. The nurse speaks for the patient, but does not take away the patient's independence" (Finkleman 2019).
I agree, he should be able to spend time with his family during this time.
Dr. Scott, as a patient advocate, I think we should change Mr. Smith's care to be less invasive, and allow Mr. Smith's family to be with him as he is dying so he is comfortable and not alone.
As a patient advocate for a dying patient, the nurse must act as a leader, and case manager to make sure the patient's wishes are met, and the patient is as comfortable as possible.
As Mr. Smith's advocate, I will notify his family of his illness, and let them know that they should come be with him to make him more comfortable.
