Patient advantage

Published

I currently have a patient in my care that's wealth and of course her family is fighting over her money. How does it make you feel when you experiences these encounters?

Unless you are one of the people fighting over her money it should make no difference to you.

Is this homework? Looking at your posting history it seems like you are using this board to do your homework.

This, and the other posts from the OP, have the vagueness and randomness of homework questions.

There seems to be an influx of posters with homework type questions lately. Did a new semester just start or something??

None of my business. I'm there to take care of my pt's health needs, not take part in family dynamics.

Ignore it, and resist family efforts to draw you in.

Nah, I think OP is just trying to stir up dust.

Also a distinct possibility. (although the subject of this "spoon" is kinda boring…)

Happens all the time in Hospice.

Not very interesting and a PITA when providing care.
