    Absolutely beautiful story. Thank you for sharing your courage and strength. In a busy stressful world it helps to remind each of us why we became nurses in the first place. She certainly had an angel on earth to have you as a nurse. Thank you again!

    I think that too often we overlook what is important to the patient for their emotional and spiritual well being.

Great article, I have been in Hospice and Palliative Care for many years and we have difficulty also with SNFs accepting Hospice, most see it as a duplication of services as do many docs. God bless you in your continued work, you seem to be a genuine Hospice nurse.:redpinkhe

    I don't think I could write anything more beautiful... Most patients of mine always do seem to give more than words can express...

    I am a nurse
    You are my charge
    I will honor you
    I will stand by your side
    In your time of need
    I will not leave
    I am on your side....
