Hospice Nurse's comment. - Page 2Register Today!
- Apr 11, '12 by GadgetRN71What it comes down to for me is that nurses shouldn't be mixing their religious beliefs with work, especially when it comes to interacting with patients.If the patient initiates it, fine. But, to push your beliefs on a patient is selfish.

I have to say, though, even if the comment was directed at him, as a hospice nurse I would think you would be comfortable enough with your own end-of-life beliefs that you would have something more benign to say than some sort of defensive statement.
