Family Visiting Policies During COVID-19

Our guest this week is Shawn Kennedy who is the Editor in Chief of the American Journal of Nursing. Shawn, along with her colleagues Diana Mason and Kristi Westphaln published an opinion article in Newsweek about the effect of visiting policies in hospitals and nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictive visiting policies have sacrificed family-centered care and human connection to maintain safety, but these authors suggest that it is time to make some adjustments to support family visits.
