I Will Treat Others With The Same Compassion And Respect
That I Would Want My Family To Experience.
It's a privilege to be a nurse, and to have the trust and respect
of your patients. And I believe respect is something that goes
both ways. You have to see your patients as more than patients -
each of them is someone's mother, grandfather or sister.
As Christians, we learn that we're not here for ourselves, we're
here to serve others. I think of every patient like family. I
make sure they know my name, and if they call for anything, I
respond right away, because that's what I would want if I were a
patient. I'm attentive to their needs, and I explain what's
happening. Little things like offering a warm blanket can go a
long way, too.
Compassion and respect are important to me as I work side-by-side
with my colleagues, as well. I'm concerned about what they need
and how they're doing. They know that I've been where they are,
and I will be there for them when they need me.
