Hospital Reviews Bereavement Practises
A hospital wide directive has been sent to all units asking for a full review of all bereavement practices. I learned about this request when I checked my voice mail Friday morning and heard an invitation to share feedback on Sasha and our family's experience with one of the units that cared for her. My hope is that units will speak to staff and parents, identify best practices and barriers, deepen inter-professional education and competency and offer families more consistent and transparent palliative and bereavement support with particular attention paid to the ICUs. I applaud this directive from the office of the Chief Nurse Executive and Interprofessional Practice Chief.
