Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Healthcare and Aging
The reality of health care in the UUS is that it is more a business than a vocation. The environment of a patient and nurse on a critical care unit is fast-paced, high-tech and cure-driven. Patient anxiety and stress is heightened in a critical care environment as is the nurse’s.
The imminent risk of patient death is very much a reality on a critical care unit and considered to be a failure. The families of patients on a critical care unit also experience the stress and anxiety of the environment. Nurses are burdened with additional stress in a critical environment since they are not only caring for the patient they provide care to the family as well.
