I am curious to know how my fellow nurses prioritize patient care and needs. Does anyone ever think about Maslow's Hierarchy of needs? First tier is physiological: like breathing, eating, and excretion.
2nd is saftey: security of body, morality.
3rd tier includes love and belonging.
4th tier is esteem including respect.
And last tier is self actualization.
Do you follow these tiers and do you believe the patients you care for are getting these needs meet.
