Probably one of the more depressing responses…. I was working on a mental health floor and was playing bingo with some residents. A new admission came in and sat next to me. I helped this woman for a while with the game and we chatted for a while. She appeared to be very content and cheery. I stepped out for a moment when the charge nurse thanks me for being so nice to her. I ask her “why wouldn’t I”? She tells me that the woman had attempted to drown her 3 kids just hours earlier…. Thankfully all 3 kids were okay. It really shook me up
This is beautiful but as a nurse I don’t know how one can get so close and attached without being affected! Every time I get closer to a patient I find myself hurting just a little more. What a beautiful skill to master. Xo
