Definitely! I usually get a gut feeling like sleepeyes just described, can't explain it, but just know what to do.
I also can usually tell when a pt is ready to cross over. For example, we had this sweet lol who had been paralyzed after a MVA, had her on service for years. I was not her CM, but I had, over the last three years made a few visits here and there, also admitted her husband to service after his surgery, but the last time I went, I greeted her, as I always do, and she made direct eye contact with me and say, "Fine, thank you." She had never spoken to me, or the other nurses before! She had that look of peace that I think people get when they have had a message from the other side, or have been called by a loved one who is already deceased.
But, I can definitely say in my case, this wasn't a gift I had right out of nursing school
, most definitely not! But, maybe after a few years of practice, I learned to listen to my gut feeling.
