There is a saddnes in the death of a loved child, but I see this story as very uplifting. This family though the actions of a nurse and other heath care professionals was given a spiritual peace that can help them mourn and (sorry to be trite) "get on with thier lives".
I have no right to feel this way be a I'm proud of the fact the patient here asked a her nurse to complete this important mission for her & her child.
I see that we (nurses) CAN make a difference and not just in the patient LOS.
Spirituality and nursing are a good couple. I cannot do my work as a nurse when there is no spirituality in myself. I think that spirituality is a very important issue for patients at the hospital. It helps to heal when spirituality is the leading issue for our work as nurses.
