In acute care settings across the country, the risks and benefits of having family members present during resuscitation of patients are debated. For the past decade, an increasing number of hospitals have allowed family members to be present during resuscitation efforts involving their loved ones, especially in emergency departments. Few studies have explored the opinions of patients regarding family presence during resuscitation. As policies are drafted and risks and benefits are debated, further study is needed of patient perceptions related to family presence. The primary objectives for this study are to answer the following questions: (1) What are participant's preferences regarding family presence during resuscitation efforts? (2) Which family members do participants want present, if they choose family presence? (3) What factors influence patients' preferences about family presence? and (4) What is the relationships between selected demographics variables and patients' perceptions of family presence during resuscitation efforts? The study design is exploratory. The sample for this study is drawn from three populations, specifically chronically ill patients attending an outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program, acutely ill patients who experienced emergent cardiac catheterization and/or cardiac interventional therapies, and patients who experienced resuscitation and survived. Data is being collected by focus group interview, individual interview, and a pen-and-paper survey. Methods and procedures vary slightly between the three populations sample. Interview data will be analyzed using narrative and thematic analysis. Other numerical data will be analyzed using correlation statistics techniques. This study will add to what is known about patient's preferences, thoughts, and feelings regarding family-witnessed resuscitation.
