CARDOSO, Rosane Barreto et al. Comforting practice for the hospitalized elderly in light of bioethics. Rev. Bioét. [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.4, pp.595-599.  Epub 10-Jan-2020. ISSN 1983-8034.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-80422019274342.

Bioethics raises discussions of great relevance regarding the values and moral principles that are present in the daily practice of nursing in hospital gerontology. Hospitalization emphasizes the fragility of the elderly, leaving them susceptible to suffering, vulnerability and discomfort. This fact can hinder their recovery, entailing the adjustment of the care provided. The objective of this article is to reflect on the promotion of well-being for the hospitalized elderly, based on the Theory of Comfort and the principles of bioethics. Thus, it is essential for health professionals to offer holistic and humanized care that addresses patients’ physical, psycho-spiritual, sociocultural and environmental needs, taking into account the comfort of the hospitalized elderly and the principles of bioethics.

Palavras-chave : Population dynamics; Health of the elderly; Bioethics; Patient comfort.
