I strongly believe that just because we have the means of modern medicine, doesn't mean we should always use it... Why I find it important not only to have a living will but to talk to your family about your wishes!
I guess you'd have to be a nurse to know what nursing is all about. Even though I plan to do more with my life, deep down, a nurse is always a nurse! It's easy for family members to blame everyone in the hospital when things go wrong...sometimes illness just happens...sometimes people get sick and don't always get better because of their lifestyle choices or age or just because...it's not always the nurses' fault. Thanks for listening.
