If a nurse had asked my husband whether he wanted me to be present with him when he had been medicated with morphine or dilaudid, he may have given a different answer to the one he would have given when he was not influenced by a mind altering medication.
I do of course recognize that not all patients want their spouse/family members to be present at certain times or any of the time they are receiving medical care, and that legally and ethically the patient's wishes must be respected.
