tips for dying #5: remember that the patient wins

Just because every member of the staff reminds you that his bed should be upright, doesn’t mean you must force the issue.  As our RN Joey said, “He’s the boss, this is his journey.  If he wants the bed flat, it doesn’t matter that it’s easier to breath with the bed upright.  He wins.  Put the bed down.”  Joey was firm, this applies to all decisions.  Each decision is his, there are no “shoulds”.  In a way that makes it really really easy.  From now on, it’s “WDFW: What does Fred want?”
