Needed: Feedback from nurses to complete assignment

  1. Hello everyone (waving hello) . I just registered today in order to complete a class assignment. I need your help.

    Here's the scoop:

    I am in my second semester of nursing clinicals. This summer, I am taking a required advocacy course, and the instructor has given us an assignment - to log on to a nursing chat room and obtain feedback about how people feel about nurses becoming personally involved with a patient.

    I know that this is somewhat vague, but don't want to lead anyone one way or the other. There is no wrong answer.

    Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. Look forward to chatting with you all.

    If you do a search you will find at least a couple of active threads on the subject. I have seen it discussed within the last couple of days.

    Good luck!

    It is sooooooo wrong. We are there to keep the patient safe. If they can't be safe from sexual advances when they are at their weakest point, what has the world come to!!!! How can this even be debated?
    What if it was a male nurse and a female victim? How would you feel then?

    personally involved??? I become inolved with all my paients. i work for a company that serves pulmonary HTN patients and generally speaking I am with them for a while and then they die. I visit in the hospital, I go to funerals, I send Mass cards, I put prom pictures in my cubicle, I give, baby gifts, I know their families. etc, etc, etc. Every text book says don't get personally involved but if a nurse is to treat the whole patient than how is he/she supposed to ignore the rest of the patient. If I wanted ice cold detachment I would have become a doctor.
