Helping survivors cope with sudden death

Helping survivors cope with sudden death

Health Care Supervisor 11(4): 41-47

Sudden death is extremely traumatic for survivors. Sudden death allows no preparation or special moments of farewell and thus leaves survivors with feelings of guilt as well as grief. Caring for survivors presents a challenge to the nurse and an opportunity to utilize strategies around a crisis intervention model that can assist survivors in coping. Helping survivors can be crucial in encouraging those who remain to experience successful bereavement and to cope with the loss.
