Mary Baine on Comforting Patients

One cannot help a man to come to accept his impending death if he remains in severe pain, one cannot give spiritual counsel to a woman who is vomiting, or help a wife and children say their goodbyes to a father who is so drugged that he cannot respond.


Patients cannot have peace of mind while they are in distress. (From: 'Principles of Symptom Control')
