WHAT REALLY GOES ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN THE ICU? Whether you are a patient, a family member looking for information, a nurse in search of mentoring, or simply have an interest in medical drama, you will find the true stories in this book fascinating and intriguing. These real-life events provide an inside glimpse into what really happens in the intensive care unit of many hospitals. The author reveals what nurses endure on a daily basis in order to save lives. She shares what really happens when the doctors are not available. She describes her never-ending quest in assuring that the best interests of patients are secured. She provides the readers with information and knowledge they can use on a practical, real-life basis. Each chapter addresses a different, thought-provoking dilemma, based on real patients and true events. Jordan was brain-dead when his family made the dramatic decision to donate his organs. Peter, all seven-hundred-pounds of him, taught the staff a lesson in discrimination, caring, and respect. Ronald and Ivan were both dying, but each had a different end-of-life experience based, respectively, on their families differing wishes. These, and other accounts of real-life events, will bring the reader onto the front lines of the intensive care unit, and help provide insight for making health-care decisions for themselves, someday. This book will also entertain the reader who is looking for medical drama. It will capture the interest of nurses, new and experienced, and will encourage them to provide undiscriminating and compassionate care for all their patients. Finally, it will encourage all of us to think about our own choices in health care. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will remember. But most of all, readers will learn that what they do can make a difference, in life and in death, both outside and Inside the ICU. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Melody Stenrose RN, MSN, CCRN, has worked in a variety of intensive care units since 1980 where she has been a staff nurse, a charge nurse, a critical care educator, and a nursing supervisor. Melody was born and raised in California where she currently lives with her husband. Together they raised their three sons. Throughout her years of nursing, she has served as a mentor to less-experienced nurses and thrives on sharing her knowledge. She strives to maintain a high quality of care for her patients and encourages other nurses to follow her example. She has gained the respect of both nurses and doctors who she works with by providing unconditional compassionate care, even in the most stressful situations.

The Minister

The Minister

The Art of Hospital Visitation - a must for both lay and professional visitors - exceptionally helpful interventions - 'The perfect little gift' to give.

In my work as a hospice instructor, I received many questions from students who were pastors of the local churches. They said they yearned for feedback from nurses who witnessed the visitations of many Ministers. They wanted to know how Ministers were viewed as a member of the health care team. They wondered what visiting methods the nurses saw as being most helpful to patients. They wanted to know how they might best relate to the nurses to gain their confidence. Many also asked for tips about their personal concerns regarding their reactions to the hospital and trauma setting. At the same time, several of the hospitals I was working with asked me to prepare in-service material that would benefit pastors of local churches. To gather this material, I interviewed nurses in clinical areas for their insights. I felt the information they offered was remarkable and invaluable. I added my recommendations to the second half of this presentation and that is how this manuscript came about. The patient's Minister is based outside the medical complex. This makes difficult the Minister's inclusion into the team causing barriers to exist between the medical team and the personal Minister. There is lack of common turf, common language, and common interaction with the patient. As a result, the Minister often feels alienated. These same barriers make it frustrating for nurses to find, identify, and interact with the Minister about issues common to both Minister and nurse. Nurse supervisors were interviewed for their perspectives on the Minister as part of the health care team and to gain insights into what would help build bridges between the Minister and the other members of the health care team. These nurses came from specialty areas, as well as from medical-surgical units, and were usually responsive to the Minister's concerns. The following questions were asked: What is the Minister's role as a member of the health care team? What is the meaning of the Minister's role to you as a nurse? What successful methods do you see Ministers use to carry out spiritual responsibility? How do you relate to Ministers? How would you like the Ministers to relate to you? What would you like Ministers to do to relate more effectively to your patients? What can Ministers do when they feel repulsed by what they are experiencing?

In the United States, lung cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death. Even more devastating is its five-year survival rate of only 15.8%. Despite these dismal facts, lung cancer receives little national attention and research and funding for lung cancer lags behind other cancers. The intent of Contemporary Issues in Lung Cancer: A Nursing Perspective is to provide oncology nurses and healthcare professionals with in-depth information on the issues that surround this disease, so that they might impact both education and research and provide better care for their patients. Contemporary Issues in Lung Cancer addresses all aspects of the disease from incidence, risk factors, and the biology of lung cancer, to the latest modes of treatment. Also discussed are controversies in the detection and screening of lung cancer, and the special issues facing individuals with lung cancer.
