STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING

I understand that the ministry of Morning Light Christian Science Nursing Service includes providing Christian Science nursing services consistent with the theology of Christian Science, and therefore I understand and expect that this does not include medical involvement.

The care of the Christian Science nurse includes:

  • Accepting a case with the expectancy of complete and immediate healing;
  • Giving care that is consistent with the theology and ethics of Christian Science;
  • Loving reassurance of God’s tender care, ever-presence, and omnipotence; faithfully and consistently acknowledging man’s spiritual perfection;
  • Christian encouragement of an individual’s expression of normal activity and natural vitality;
  • Reading to or with an individual from the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other writings by Mary Baker Eddy; also, additional literature published by The Christian Science Publishing Society;

  • Communication: maintaining an ethical, moral, and loving manner in all communications with the patient, family, friends, Christian Science practitioner, and others; observing ethical and legal requirements with regard to private information about the patient;
  • Surroundings: maintaining an atmosphere that is conducive to spiritual healing and supportive of harmonious care;
  • Personal care and bathing: assisting with all necessary care to meet the needs of cleanliness and comfort;
  • Mobility: assisting with mobility including assisting with standing, walking, moving, and settling with or without mobility aids or comfort items;
  • Nourishment: preparing and modifying food; assisting with feeding; giving appropriate encouragement to eat;
  • Cleansing/bandaging: cleansing, covering and bandaging, to provide for cleanliness, protection, support, and comfort;
  • Instructing the patient or others in providing care for meeting individual needs;
  • Being obedient to the laws of the land.

The care of the Christian Science nurse does not include:

  • Making a medical diagnosis or prognosis;
  • Assuming responsibility for making health care decisions for the patient;
  • Administering medication, drugs or using medicated, herbal, or vitamin-based products and remedies;
  • Using and administering medically oriented techniques or technology;
  • Manipulation, massage, physical therapy;
  • Intravenous or force-feeding;
  • Assuming responsibility for a patient’s financial or household business transactions;
  • Intruding on the private relationship between the patient and the Christian Science practitioner, or between the patient and his or her family;
  • Giving personal advice and counsel.

Fundamental to the ministry of a Christian Science nurse is an active, prayerful confirmation of man’s innate spirituality and responsiveness to God’s harmonious government. This spiritual witnessing undergirds each aspect of the care a Christian Science nurse renders.
