Is there any ICU's out there who sends letters of condolence to family of patients who died in the unit? I know of palliative-care units who does it but in a unit like ICU???
Our family-intervention commitee has come up with this idea that I think can be great if done properly but I was wandering if it's been done somewhere else. I would like to hear from you because I have a loooot of questions!!!
Like, do you send the same letter the everyone? Or do your personalise it with the name of the patent or significant commentary? Do you send it to every grieving family or those you've known for a while, say, a day or two? Who signs it? Any ethical questionning in the process?
I'll be glad to hear from your experiences and opinions.
