You bring up a good point. We often fail to consider the fact that other patients and their families
are also affected by the deaths they witness or hear about during their admission. And unlike
healthcare workers and first responders, many of them may have never had to face death before.
Patients often ask me about the health of other patients, and they express concern about those
patients’ wellbeing. Of course, I can offer no information on the subject, but only an assurance
that we do everything we can to help. I imagine the stress of being at an inpatient hospice facility
or ICU or ER would make that scenario even more difficult for patients and their families.
