MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL NURSES


Dear nures,
As we enjoy the Christmas season, which is a very special and joyous time of the year, I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

WHY DO PATIENTS CALL CONSTANTLY?


Hi guys,

We all know as nurses, that not every patient who comes ino the hospital has a family member or friend close by. It is not unusual to have such a patient call constantly. It can be very trying, on a busy day when we have many responsibilities,to keep answering the same call light. It is the Christmas season and it must be even harder for such patients as they witness gifts being brought in for other patients and none for themselves.
Have you any thoughts for this situation? Consider getting a small gift like a calendar for such a patient. It might help that patient feel loved. Or you may have a better suggestion. Please share your ideas.
Merry Christmas to you all!
