This chapter emphasize on the power of praying with a patient when possible. A family member states on page 115 “I was particularly touched when she prayed for Jonathan in the Hospital”. She was talking about being grateful to the nurse for praying.

Ethically, it is a nurse’s duty to prioritize patient care and provide alternatives when their wishes interfere with the doctor’s preferences. It is important to incorporate the patient’s beliefs into care that is best for them.

This provision discusses the importance of a patient’s right to privacy, being fully educated, the right to safety, and to be fully protected from impaired practices (American Nurses Association [ANA], 2015, p.471-472). A professional nurse should provide privacy and is a right to all recipients of care.
