During the hospitalization of Mr. Wu, as he is unconscious, he is considered as a dying patient. The five stages of grief developed by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross is applied in taking care of Mr. Wu and his family. The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance (Kübler-Ross, 2005). It is a series of emotions that may be experienced by Mrs. Wu and Tim.Mrs Wu andTim may first go through the stage of denial. Mrs. Wu and Tim may respond at first by being paralyzed with shock or blanketed with numbness after noticing the dying situation of Mr. Wu (Kübler-Ross, 2005). They may reject and deny the fact of the dying situation of the Mr.Wu. and say that “It is not happening, Mr. Wu won’t die “. As a nurse, it is important to build rapport with Mr. Wu’s family by offering self and by their side to attend to their needs. Besides, a nurse should support the defense mechanism of denial by reassuring them that denial is normal and show by our attitudes that it is permissible to express grief and allow them to express their feelings so they would know that they can trust the nurse with his feelings (NursingCrib,2014).Mrs. Wu and Tim may move on to the anger stage after they discover that that denial cannot continue. Anger is necessary stage of the healing process, it may present in many ways which does not have to be logical or valid .They may experience guilt, when anger turn toward self. (Kübler-Ross, 2005). Mrs. Wu and Tim may emotionally blame the person who cause the fire accident which put Mr. Wu to the dying situation or even blame the god for taking away live of Mr. Wu who saves lives in a fire accident is not fair. Mrs. Wu told Tim that Mr. Wu had asked her to cook him breakfast at that fateful day, but she refused and go play tennis instead, Mrs. Wu felt guilty for her rejection to Mr. Wu and go to play tennis instead. At this situation, a nurse should allow them to talk and express feelings which helps the client to relieve distress.

She told Tim that she didn’t know what to do with herself and that she no longer had a purpose without Mr. Wu. One night, Tim had found her sitting on Mr. Wu’s favorite chair. Sobbing, Mrs. Wu told Tim that Mr. Wu had asked her to cook him breakfast at that fateful day, but she refused and go play tennis instead. Tim cried and told me that he needed his father back, he became angry and told me that his life was empty.In social aspect, as Mrs. Wu stopped playing tennisStrategies of therapeutic communicationThere are some strategies of therapeutic communication should be applied by the nurse when communicating with Mrs. Wu and her son.
