Abstract

Bedsiders' welfare is a neglected issue in the Zambian health system therefore, they are at risk of facing untold challenges as they care for the patient. With the current shortage of healthcare staff in hospitals, it implies that the clinicians may not be able to meet all aspects of the holistic health care approach i.e. social, mental, or physical aspects of health and that’s where the bedside comes in. Besides are arbitrarily defined as the informal caregivers including family, relatives, or friends for an in-patient of any hospital duration.
