I've had some tough days at work lately. We've been short staffed so lots of us are working long hours and extra days. There has been extra work because of the move to the new addition and the added craziness that goes with renovations in the existing building. We've been having a lot of admissions and discharges which means lots of extra paperwork. We've also had some very challenging patients. All that makes for hard days and feeling a bit overwhelmed. But then something happens to remind you why you do what you do!
Last week one of our therapists came to me in the morning and said she had something for me and handed me a piece of paper. It was from a lady who had spent 3 weeks with us after she broke a bone in her back. She improved enough to be able to go back home. I wasn't there the day she was discharged and she gave this note to the therapist to give to me.
Isn't that the sweetest thing? It made my day and is something I'll be keeping. What a nice thing to remember on those hard days!
