Hi. This topic is in response to the topic "Angry Nurse" posted by goldilocksrn. Is it reasonable for facility administrators and the public to continue to expect nursing to be a "one man show" in light of the fact that patient care is much more complex today, staffing levels are low, and rules and regs by different entities add additional pressures? Is is fair for families to completely "drop the ball" once patients are admitted to a facility? Parents are held accountable as primary educators for their children in most countries even when the children attend school. How should family participation in patient care be approached? How can nurses solve the problem of passive family involvement in patient care? Please post your opinion.
