I have just started a new job as a hospice nurse. I have experienced a lot of deaths, as we all would. But tonight for instance, I was the one that helped someone on their way, per se. I spoke to one of the other staff nurses and she disagrees stating that the patient was already dying, but because she had terminal restlessness, I eased her pain and anxiety and made her calm. I do agree and feel that way too, but there is a part of me that feels that "I" was the one that ended her life. If you asked me to do it, I would do it again. I don't want people to suffer and this poor woman was doing just that. Do you ever get over that feeling of guilt? Or feelings like I'm having?I don't feel bad really, just different. Not sure what it is.Also, another thing...when do you learn WHAT to say to the family members. I only know the textbook answers. Or the physiology of something. It's hard to speak what I don't know what to say.Any suggestions?
