CNA's need recognition...

  1. hello all. some of the nurses and myself were discussing how we could thank our cna's for all the hard work they do. i must add, our cna's are awesome!
    i work at one of the mercy hospitals on the med-surg floor. we tried to brainstorm some ideas such as a gift, a meal, you know, the basic things. so, this morning, i sat down and started writing a poem. once i finished it, i contacted the publisher for our hospital newspaper and she had me e-mail it to her. it will be published this week. here it is, give me some feed back if you will:

    to mercy's nursing assistants:

    you have no idea--
    how you touch the lives of others
    with all that you do--
    for our sisters and our brothers
    and our mothers and our fathers--
    of our families and our friends
    you say it's just your job--
    but that really makes no sense
    it's all the extra things that you do--
    when you think they're all unseen
    like when you go beyond your line-of-duty--
    it's those things that i mean
    so i'm writing you today--
    to let you know just how we feel
    not just me, but from all the nurses--
    as their feelings i promised to reveal
    it's hard to put it all in words--
    i really don't know where to start
    so this poem i have to offer--
    as god gives you a place in his heart
    we really couldn't do our jobs without you--
    and i'm speaking on everyone's behalf
    god bless you all--you are appreciated--
    from the entire nursing staff
    thank you!

    even though i'm not poetic, it bears repeating that YES, cna's definitely deserve recognition and their laborious duties should be acknowledged so much more than they are...

    It rocks! I'm not much for poetry either but I would've loved this!

    Agree. That's is a great way to try to put into words your appreciation.

    I agree, I always feel lucky when I have great CNA. I alway make sure I thank them and let them know how much I appreciate their hard work.
