The article discusses the effect of patient deaths and dying episodes to palliative care professionals who have developed affectionate bonds with the deceased. Health professionals who are emotionally attached to their patients are noted to be negatively affected with bereavement episodes and experience the sense of loss. The lack of models for health professionals in coping with patient deaths is also mentioned.
