Had A Great Day

  1. HI everyone,just had to write about my great day i had today! been having quite a few lately but today was the best in a long time.

    I was off work for two days, when i got back tonight I had people the DON and nurse manager waiting for me and a patient of mine from a month ago with her sister. the DON and nurse manager went on to tell me how many letters and calls they have been getting about me. and that this one patient had called and wanted to thank me again in person. also they had set up for her husband to call me from Iraqi( which is the same place he was when she delivered) he thanked me for taking such good care of her and the baby and for allowing them to film it so he could see it when he gets home. he goes on to tell me how in debted he is to me for ever. (actually I feel indebted to him and other military personel and familes but that's another thread). it left me speachless and in tears. his wife gave me a nice little gift. and to top it off the sister told us she is delivering here just because of how she saw me care for her sister.

    nurse manager also told me I give great patient care ,and that the docs and midwives love me as well as my patients. she thanked me for all I do. and for being such a good representative for our hospital.

    then later in the shift i had a couple come in and ask for me, they introduced there self as a friend of a couple i delivered 2 months ago or so. and told me they wanted to meet me and see if i would be there nurse when they delivered and if i would she would change docs to come here. of course i agreed. lately I have been getting lots of positive feedback and it is sure making me feel good.

    I just love what I do, and am glad my patients give me the honor and allow me to take part of the most special time of their lives. hope this streak goes on for a while.

    Congratulations on a job well done and well enjoyed. It is unfortunately rare in nursing today to be in a position to enjoy your job w/o being run into the ground by your employer. It's nice they show their appreciation for you.
