I was curious what everyone's thoughts are on staying in contact with the family after you leave the case (to work a different area, take on a new case, etc.)? If you're a PDN, what have you done in the past? It seems to be the norm for this family for previous nurses to stay in contact with the family either by adding them on social media, phone calls, or some coming to visit the child and family at their home and becoming like a family friend. It's not the case for all nurses, but some. I have been debating leaving my particular case (honestly, possibly leaving nursing in general due to stress.. ) and I can already tell that the family is not going to be happy if I were to leave. (I would also be super sad as I've been with this patient a while). I'm not the best with boundaries (something I'm trying to work on personally/professionally) and I feel like leaving would be a messy situation so that's why I want to have a clear plan in mind of what to say regarding future communication with the family. At the end of the day, I want to be the best nurse I can be, but I have found that nursing is almost too overwhelming for me.
