Medical Opinion vs. Personal Opinion

Many times, as nurses, we are asked to give our opinion in certain situations. Do we think certain procedures are necessary? Would we be taking these risks if the person in the bed was a member of our family? As nurses, we can be put into very difficult situations. Our thoughts and feelings about a specific practice may differ from protocol.

What do we do during those times? Do we give our medical opinion or do we give our personal opinion. Sometimes it is a hard call.

Over atworkingnurse.com there is an article that discusses this very subject.

We don't always like being put on the spot but, as nurses we are there for the patient and nothing else.

What are your thoughts?
