Abstract:
The benefits of family presence (FP) during resuscitation are well documented in the literature and it is becoming an accepted practice in many healthcare settings. There is sufficient evidence about healthcare providers (HCP) and families attitudes and beliefs about FP and little about the actual outcomes after family witnessed resuscitation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate FP at resuscitations at an academic medical center. Nurses, attending physicians, resident/intern physicians, and respiratory therapists, who participated in resuscitations where family members were present, were invited to complete an electronic survey about the experience. There were 106 codes during the study period and 65 (49% response rate) HCPs responded to the survey. Respondents indicated that family members were able to emotionally tolerate the code situation (59%), did not interfere with the care being provided to the patient (88%). In addition, team communication was not negatively affected (88%). Seventy percent agreed or strongly agreed that the family member benefited by being present during the code. A family facilitator was present at 70% of the codes and it was usually a RN (41%), chaplain (17%), or a combination of people (11%). Narrative comments were summarized to reflect benefits and difficulties of having families present. These study findings demonstrate that having families present during codes does not negatively impact patient care, is perceived to benefit family members and that a dedicated family facilitator is an integral part of the process. Continued staff support and education are necessary to effectively implement a FP hospital guideline.
