Long term family vs long term nursing goal

  1. 0
    I am having a hard time figuring out what a long term goal the family wants and the long term goal the nurse would have are. What kind of time frame would these generally be considered in acute care?

    Today my client had Alzheimer's and there wasn't any family so I don't know how I'm supposed to know what the patient/ family goal is? I'm so lost!!

    The patient whether they know it or not would be to have dignity.
