Abstract

Objective: To learn about patients' feelings, beliefs, and values concerning resuscitation and to suggest the role for nurses in discussionof resuscitation options with patients. Design: Prospective, qualitative, phenomenological. Setting: Midwestern teaching hospital. Patients: Ten patients hospitalized in a coronary care unit. Age range was 67 to 89 years. Results: Participants described beliefs about life-sustaining interventions, decision making, and patient and family involvement, nurses' and physicians' roles in the decision-making process, and desire to know the truth about their health care options. Subjects alsooffered definitions of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, resuscitation, and code in their own words. Conclusions: This study suggests that decision-making opportunities are important to patients. Because patientsfrequently feel comfortable discussing their feelings with nurses, nurses have the opportunity to initiate discussion of sensitive issues with patients.
