What does the nurses point of view provide in the resolution of ethical dilemmas?
A nurses point of view offers a unique voice in the resolution of ethical dilemmas. Nurses spend the most time with patients and because they are involved in intimate physical acts like bathing, feeding and special procedures, pts and families feel safer or more comfortable with revealing information they may not tell doctors etc. Details about family life, coping styles, personal preferences and fears are likely to come out under the nurses care. This is a very valuable point of view.
