Doctors Are Okay, but Nurses Are Awesome

Nurses, the unsung heroes of your hospital stay. They provide everything from getting your meds to helping you get cleaned up to answering questions to even things they didn’t go to school for, like getting your phone when it’s out of reach or a Sprite and crackers when you feel nauseous.

A doctor comes in for a few minutes and their role is quite important, but without that nurse who is working a 12-hour shift, at least, keeping several eyes on so many things a medical facility would not be able to function.

I am in the hospital for testing and without the fabulous team of nurses and aides who have helped during my stay I would not have felt so at ease during a very stressful time.

It’s all good, because I’ve got good nurses.
