The presence of family members in the resuscitation room is an issue
that is extremely controversial, with strong opinions for and against the
practice in both medical and lay communities. Routinely, family members
have remained in a nearby waiting room while resuscitative efforts were
performed on a loved one. Meanwhile, medical and nursing personnel, driven
by their desire to meet the needs of the patient, may not have considered
the needs of the family. Recently, a movement has begun that has
challenged and provoked a change in practice in institutions across the
United States, and beyond. The purpose of this integrative review is to
provide an examination and appraisal of the research available on the
subject. The studies were analyzed from a perspective of family-centered
care, recognizing that the incident is perceived to be a crisis for both
patient and family alike. Twenty-three articles, primarily survey
research, are included in this review with results compiled in six tables:
surveys of health care providers (HCPs), surveys of family members,
surveys of patients, surveys of both HCPs and family, and two
quasi-experimental studies. Research shows that a vast majority of family
members wish to be present, or at minimum, be given the opportunity.
Health care providers have rather mixed opinions, with more nurses in
favor than physicians. Patients expressed appreciation for the presence of
and support by a family member during the emergency. Family presence is a
difficult issue, presently there is no universally satisfactory
conclusion. Questions remain. Based on the research reviewed, an algorithm
for use in implementing family presence in clinical practice was created. Key Words: Family presence, resuscitation, ethics
