I work as a nurse on a ward that deals primarily with medical issues
I know you are all like "what does that mean?" LOL
I will sum it up quickly
what it means is that we are a very busy place
with so many stressful situations every day.
I am the Clinical Resource...I know what does that mean? LOL
it simple means that when the staff have issues with patients, staff or procedures
I try to help them :)
However there are also so many times when my girls solve issues themselves.
They are awesome individuals who I have the pleasure to work with
and for many I have the pleasure of calling them my friends too.
We spend so much time together,
endure so many shifts without breaks
or just times when our hearts are broken
& our minds are overwhelmed.
I call them my girls/peeps
cause I think of them as family
and would not only want to protect them...try to everyday!
When I think of the little things I witness daily,
and huge things that have occurred at work
I always think of the amazing staff!
I think of all the tears,
and the happiness
I have been lucky enough to be part of.
I think of these times and wish I had a card to pull that new girl up after a med error, after a "code blue" when the nurse knew there was something wrong but couldn't prevent it, to help that nurse that gave 100% of her day to her dying patient (including her break) and then spent 15 minutes crying to me cause she felt she should have done more.
I wish I had a card for every single time a person unintentionally hurt someone's feelings,
yelled at someone out of frustration, or hugged a patient in the hall. I wish there was a card to make sure every single person I work with feels valued, appreciated and special...cause my word that is what these people are!!!
I made this card caddy to put at the desk at work, so when others notice someone or something special, they "can" grab a card & let them know. I want to try to prevent all this "awesomeness" from going unnoticed.
hope you like it :)
thanks for comin by
