Today we celebrate International Nurses Day, amidst the pandemic they are crucial in the fight for survival of our country.
From my personal experience when I was in hospital last year, a nurse has to endure the most, they have to keep you calm when you feeling uneasy, they are there to explain the gibberish you hear from Doctors in simple language. Often times we disrespect or look down on a nurse in our impatience to see a Doctor not knowing that it is the nurse’s duty to prepare us adequately in order for the Doctor to do his/her job efficiently to move onto the next patient swiftly.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest accomplishment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo Buscaglia
Nurturing and caring this is one of the fundamental qualities these human beings possess.
Unselfishly giving their time and energy to keep us safe and comfortable.
Ready for any challenge in the workplace.
Superheroes do not necessarily wear capes; we have come to learn that they wear scrubs and surgical masks.
Executing their tasks with efficiency and care in order to keep their patients healthy.
“Nurses are the hospitality of the hospital.” – Anonymous
Today and every day we salute the healthcare workers on the front-line who work tirelessly keeping us healthy, let us listen to their instructions and stay safe.
