The American Heart Association 2000 guidelines, addressed the importance of family presence during resuscitation. No research has been found addressing the attitude of family members that are also healthcare providers. The purpose of this study is to explore the lived experience of healthcare persons who had been present during resuscitation and death of a loved one. A convenience sample of three participants 18 years and older were interviewed. The interview process was audiotaped and then transcribed for verbatim. The researcher organized the findings according to the major themes that emerged from the data. The first theme, responsibility for offering reassurance, emerged from the knowledge the family member possessed as a healthcare provider. A feeling of uncertainty evolved into the second theme surrounding, unexpected loss of a loved one. The third theme, trust in the healthcare system, emerged directly from an active participation of the family member, expanded role as a healthcare provider, and familiarity of the surroundings. The review of literature suggests a need for further research for comprehending the role of the healthcare provider/family member. Further implications are needed to create tools that can measure the emotional needs of the family/healthcare provider, to offer future support. AN: MN030005
