Nurse Lorree: I am Proud to be a Nurse
As a nurse,I use my hands everyday in countless ways. I use them to clean up,type,eat and yes even talk with them.(as my co-workers and family will tell you) The most important way I use them is to "feel" my patients. Not just physically, but emotionally.I can feel how they help relax an anxious patient. Or celebrate with a new parent, or patient who got good news. Comfort the family who didn't.
I've been honored to Touch people from the beginning of life to the end. All with something that costs nothing, but is priceless to that one person. My touch!
