Good morning to Everyone.
Considering the thread has gone quiet I just wanted to say thank you to everyone again before I log out. Thank you again to Niamh and Mark for facilitating it.
I welcome all the input on here and I appreciate everyone taking the time to ask a question or comment. Thank you to those that have opened my mind a little more also.
As a nurse that always strives to do my best to deliver quality care I am saddened to hear of those that have had poor experiences. After my own poor experiences last year with a loved one I just wanted to say to never ever be afraid to ask questions or to question the care that you or a loved one receive. I can assure you that I am a nurse that is open to discussion of any type with all patients and their families.
I was asked about gifts I receive, what I didn't mention is that I receive drawings and paintings regularly from children. In all the pictures drawn of me I have a smiley face and that proves to me that I am doing something right. No matter how bad my day is, how sad or how tired I am, I always try to remain positive and have a smile on my face.
I am proud to be a nurse. I am proud to work with an amazing team of incredible nurses who go out of their way to ensure that our patients remain happy and well cared for. I am proud to work with an amazing multidisciplinary team who are all also under serious pressure but always do their best too.
Lastly I am thankful for the support and kind words received, not only over the past few weeks but in general.
