Hey all...i was sitting with a patient the other night...and something popped in my head. How many patients usually are stuck reading the same magazines...or watching the same TV shows...or just sleeping because there is nothing else to do? Now what if actual hospitals had activity departments for in-room visits?
I have been an activity director for 3.5 years, and a RN student for 2, and a tech currently.....just trying to get some opinions about how you would personally feel about it? thanks.
Years ago at the hospital I still work in, there was a cart that went through the hospital manned by volunteers with gift shop items to purchase...magazines, newspaper, candies, toilet items , etc. I know this isn't the same item...just brought back a positive memory.
I like your idea. What I find in the system I work is less for more. Get them in and get them out! I hope your idea in your hospital system would be something they may entertain.
Good luck to you!
