Emma Garwood Third-year adult nursing student, Buckinghamshire New University
When Emma Garwood cared for someone nearing the end of life, she made sure that the patient’s sister could be with her when she died
The final placement of my first year was on a cardiology ward where most of the patients were older people. One of the patients I helped care for was a lady I will call Elsie, who was nearing the end of her life. Elsie’s family had been called and were sat around her bedside.
