It’s funny how we tend to forget the humanity of professionals.
And so here are our Acute Nursing Staff. Doing amazing things. Confronting pain and illness and death on a daily basis with some (forgive me for being an old fart) being so young in life experience.
There is reward in doing a job well, but it can be exhausting. A few words of thanks can go a long way to re-energise someone.
Patients and Relatives: help play a part in making the Worcestershire Hospitals better by give praise where it is due
Staff: We have a responsibility to one another. If you see someone doing something good, tell them.
These are our hospitals. They deserve and need our suport.
Oh, and I’ll start the ball rolling. I have already written to the Chief Exec about this but THANK YOU Staff Nurse Kathryn Norwood for the care and compassion I saw so evident in your care to the elderly lady patient M. Recognising her needs; calling me in to her, and treating her as you would, I suspect, treat your own family.
30 seconds to write; but maybe immeasurable in its value.
