i recently started a new job at a pediatric hospital. during orientation, we watched a video about a child who died from dehydration at johns hopkins hospital (of all places). her mother, gave a speech to residents at grand rounds 1 yr after her childs death. every nurse needs to read this...it will make you a better nurse and pt advocate. i have cried on and off all afternoon. a printed version of her speech (which is heart-wrenching) can be found at www.josieking.org/speech.html go get some tissue first.
