I have been a Hospice Nurse for 15 years and this issue with turning a patient who is actively dying has always been very controversial among nurses, doctors and family members. I have seen doctors get mad at nurses for repositioning a pt who is actively dying.. I have seen family members do the same, as well as CNA's. I totally agree patients need skin care and gentle repositioning and it's a "pet peeve" of mine when patients go the entire shift without any repositioning. I couldn't agree more with the quote: " comfort care doesn't mean lack of care". I am so glad other nurses think like me!
