Purpose:  The purpose for this study is to evaluate experiences, attitudes, and stress of health care personnel, patients (if available), and family members who were present during resuscitation and/or invasive procedures performed on an adult patient in the ED. Background:  A need for a policy regarding family presence during resuscitation and/or invasive procedures performed on adult patients in an emergency department (ED) was recognized by the Policy and Procedure Committee of a large regional medical center in the northwest.  Following evidence-based practice guidelines, a literature review on the topic was completed and evidence critiqued and leveled.  Several publications focused on pediatric settings and fewer publications focused on adult patients in specialty areas.  A recent study by,, Abel, Koziel, and Szymanski (2007) found no completed studies about family presence during resuscitation and/or invasive procedures performed in the ED.  Due to this finding and encouragement from the ED nurse manager and ED medical director, it was decided that a research project would be used to validate the policy.  IRB approval obtained. Methods/Process: Sample and Terminology: (1) A family member is described as a person with an established relationship with the patient.  This may include a relative, significant other, legal guardian, care giver, or friend. (2) The healthcare team is composed of nurses, physicians, trauma surgeons, respiratory technicians, social workers, chaplaincy, and others as needed.  (3) Presence is described as being with a patient in an authentic relationship promoting mutual respect, honesty, and dignity. Design:  A quantitative non-experimental design was used for this study.  Measurement Tools:  Likert-style surveys were adapted with permission from a survey created by Duran, et al. (2007).  Three similar versions of the survey were created for patients (if available), family members present at the time of the event and the ED healthcare team.  All data collected from surveys are anonymous. Projected Outcomes:  It is anticipated that findings will show (1) nurses have a more receptive attitude than other health care personnel to family member(s)? presence during resuscitation and/or invasive procedures, and (2) family member(s) and patients have decreased stress and positive attitudes regarding family member(s)? presence during a resuscitation and/or invasive procedure performed in the ED. Funding:  A small grant from the Department of Nursing at provided funding for this study.
