Nursing, Assignment help

How would you respond to a request not to hand feed a patient with dementia who is able to eat and swallow but whose spouse wants no feeding assistance because “my husband wouldn’t want to live this way”? Is this being complicit in killing by neglect or an example of a health care team adhering to the spouse’s wishes? Discuss how to approach this dilemma from a health care team perspective incorporating ideas from your readings.
