re: It's a lose-lose situation for all involved

Thank you for your well thought-out comments, Christina. We are all suffering through this. The family, the staff, and those of us that can only imagine what is really happening. The saddest part for me is the lack of trust the family has in the healthcare providers, but I can understand how that might have occured. We all need a way to explore the moral distress this has created in our critical care community. Ongoing conversations and exploration will help to ease it some. Also, trying not to feel bitterness at the family, but rather reaching the point that we can see and understand their point of view even though we cannot agree with it. Thank you for being at the bedside for your patients and continuing to provide compassionate and empathetic care.
