I am a Nurse working in a care home. We have a patient on end of life care. My Manager is appointing the patient’s daughter to work on my ward where her mum is a patient. I have concerns about this issue, am not sure what to do. My Manager has been ignoring us about it. Your views are appreciated.

NMC code of practice 20.6 (at least) would seem to apply.

20.6 stay objective and have clear professional boundaries at all times with people in your care (including those who have been in your care in the past), their families and carers (my bold).

Don't see how you can if you are looking after a relative.
