    Thanks for recall but i think it was ITP instead of HSP as there were decreased platelets and no tummy or joint pain. Bruises were also widespread rather than only on buttocks.

    Ask pt's family what they know.
    Identify the issues/ concerns/ fears.
    Tell them what you know in terms of pt's progress and further/ current management.
    Offer to hold a family meeting with the senior team members.
    By the time you do all this, pt's family will be happy, ur job is done.
