    At CHKD, we have a team that supports end of life care including social work, chaplaincy and child life. Our nurses take a 2/1 assignment

    when caring for a patient who is actively dying. Hope this helps.

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know a couple of things.  How do you manage your end of life care?  What Nurse patient ratios do you observe? Spiritual care?  Family support?

    Thank you for any feedback,
    Laura B. Ramos
