Patient Advocacy: Our Duty, Our Right, Kim McAllister, RN, BSN, CEN, January 27, 2012 #nurseup #amandatrujillo

Patient Advocacy: Our Duty, Our Right, Kim McAllister, RN, BSN, CEN, January 27, 2012:”It’s a no brainer.
Nurses are patient advocates.
It’s what we do.
We advocate for our patients
We help them advocate for themselves by helping them heal physically, mentally, emotionally.
We assess what they know about their condition and we provide information and resources so they can make informed, intelligent decisions about their care.
It’s such a basic tenet of the nursing profession, one would believe it unassailable.
Right?
Not always.”
