Grand Canyon University Nursing Care Isolation and Separation Discussion
I’m studying for my Health & Medical class and need an explanation.
It is a good point to emphasize that many patients are not prepared to accept the reality that he/she needs to move to a nursing home or move in with a family member for assistance. A lot of psychological and emotional support is needed by the patient. The patient may not be fully willing to listen to his/her family members because he/she considers their family members’ opinions as subjective. Besides psychological and emotional support, a nurse is in a good position to provide patient with education and objective and trusted professional opinions.
