Nurses: Do you remember every patient?

“It’s you! You were my Nurse! You took care of me…”

What do you do… what do you say when you are approached by a former patient who wants to show their appreciation for the care you provided?

What happens when you don’t remember them?


Awkward silence

I don’t know about you… but I’ve cared for A LOT of patients in my short time in this profession. I barely remember what day of the week it is, let alone remember names / faces of former patients that I may have cared for from months (or years) ago.

Do you ‘play it off’ like you remember them…. or do you politely explain/apologize for not remembering them?

What do you say to them? What is your response?

You are sometimes not enough. Ask for help.

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of strength.

Ask for help and ask for feedback. Especially when human lives are on the line.

You are sometimes not enough for your patient.

Put your pride in your pocket and recruit the help of your team.

Your level of experience will not matter when things get tough, when you get overwhelmed. When you are ‘drowning’.

It’s about the patient. Ask for help.

Do not let bad things happen.

My saddest moment as a Nurse

twitter_5ef64765e8

 

What are my saddest moments as a Nurse?

When I fail my patient. When I fail to advocate for them. When I fail to speak for them when they are unable to speak for themselves.

The emotional roller coaster we ride has some pretty high peaks and pretty low valleys, but the ride never stops. We learn to develop insurmountable resilience.

Check out my video below. I get a lil’ deep on this one folks. Pull up a chair…
