It's a small world:)

  1. any one else ever notice how small the world seems at times wife just started a new job and when she meet the DON she asked if i was her husband wife owned up to it. and the lady proceeded to tell her i was the nurse that delivered her baby and how nice i was. she then took her to the office and intoduced her to another former patient of mine.
    wife seems to have achieved near celebrity status there because of it. I guess it was a good thing i was nice to them

    CONGRATULATIONS MARK !!!
    Oh yeah, we must remember that our words and actions during the rendering of healthcare can follow us...it is indeed a small world and we are all inter-connected...congratulations again to you for being an exemplary example of an excellent nurse to the general public and also being an excellent nurse to nurses...

    Fun, Isn't it? I was just talking with a friend of mine who told me she was tired of nursing ( me too some days), but felt that she had been a wonderul nurse. Isn't it nice to be able to say that and mean it without feeling cocky? I think that is great that both your wife AND you are sort of celebrities....How special to have meant so much to so many people....

    Yeah, Mark....ya' never know!!!

    My Sis was once talking to a friend who told her about the *wonderful, compassionate nurse* who took care of her. Long story short, that was me. Made me feel really great that altho she didn't remember my name, she remembered my *CARE*.

    Ain't it GREAT being a nurse??? !!!!

    So true, it is great being a nurse! I was taking care of a lady once w/ fx hip, very nice lady, great family. The son-in -law was so grateful to me because as soon as the pt came into the ED, I could tell she had a fx, I had her go straight to x-ray(came in by our local ambulance service,pt was stable) so she wouldn't be moved around so much(and increasing pain) Pt's daughter and I started talking, turns out she is in a Bible study group w/ my mother! The topic in the study group the nite before had been about the talents God had given to everyone,and my mom had told everyone that the greatest talent God had given her was being a geat mother, and she could prove it because she had 4 wonderful children! (You must understand, this is fairly typical of my mom) The pt's daughter said,"Your mother is right, I now know you mother raised at least one great kid!":imbar It is a small world!

    About 5 years ago I worked with a male RN, he was actually the manager of our unit briefly before it closed. At the time we had a few differences, but on hind site--I think he was a great nurse. All of the patients really connected with him. It was very surprising for a rural area. I wish we had more!!!!
