That is an example of what my DON used to call "creative reality" or at least an offshoot of it. In this case you were caring for more than the patient, giving the family what they needed for closure. In short, what a good nurse is supposed to do.
I used to work as a staff/charge RN at a long term/rehab facility on the noc shift. I was picking up an item I had ordered from Walmart and from the back I heard an alarm that sounded just like the bed alarms that the facility used. I instantly got the same feeling in my chest I got while on the job. It got worse because it took at least 5 minutes for the alarm to be silenced.
