Handling all the issues of life at once.
Thank you to all of you.
Dear Anonymous Reader,
I wrote this, because last night I had a patient that told his son that she wants to hold his hand. While the patient is holding his son’s hand she said, “I feel very sad, this is the first human touch I had today”. This lady is dying. As a nurse it breaks my heart, we used to be called the “Angel of the sick room” but why can’t we offer a healing touch anymore? Why can’t we spend 10 seconds of our time to let our patient hold our hand and tell them everything will be alright.
What happened last night is a wake up call to me as a nurse. It seems that we as nurses turned out to be cold and automated like robots, because of these too much pressure and standards that we are trying to meet in our workplace.
