Explain how you would respond to the following situations:

Situation #1:
You have been assigned to visit a hospice patient to provide encouragement and comfort. When you arrive, the family thanks you for coming, but the patient yells at you, "I don't need any of your sympathy! Get out of here!"

Situation #2:
As a hospice volunteer you visit Frank, who has cancer. After each visit, he asks you when you will return and always begs you to come back more often than you have been assigned by hospice and have agreed to serve.

Situation #3:
When you go to visit an assigned patient as a hospice volunteer, the patient asks you why hospice has not delivered the hospital bed that he requested. He has been waiting three weeks for the bed and says he cannot sleep another night on his current bed. It is 8:00 pm on a Friday when you make this visit.
