I have to write a plan of care for a patient that is a jehovah witness with blood loss due to an MVA. Does anyone have any information that would help me. I think all the other care except blood loss would be the same. Most of the information about JW is very vague.
Any thing you can other then blood products! If the patient can't speak for themselves to tell you whether they want blood or not, you have to look for a will or advance directive, if he states no, even if the family tells you to do it, you can't! Now if the patient doesn't have a document or can't speak, then the responsible family member chooses!
