Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth

The most fundamental tools of understanding; kindness, and compassion toward our bedside nurses & patients, is sometimes lost in the shuffle of administration’s concern to speed track medical and nursing care. What’s evident is that workers are expected to treat and street, juggle unsafe patient assignments - all the while covering breaks for fellow nurses, squeeze in time consuming in-services, while keeping one watchful eye on unstable patients, mentor new nurses without the proper supportive resources, and somehow provide high quality care. It comes as no surprise to any nurse, doctor, physician assistant, NP, LPN, or nursing assistant on the front line of care, when a colleague is exhausted to the point of burning out - yet administration sets unrealistic standards that seem to have neglected the most valuable components; the foundations of care and service. What’s needed, are perhaps leaders with a clear vision, an inherent character and courage to stand for what they know to be the right thing, the heart to follow through with what they profess, a solid understanding of the daily struggles of the workers on the front line, a caring and flexible mind that listens to the thoughts of those actually delivering the care, the kindness that recognizes some days it’s just not possible to be on point, the compassion of what it may potentially mean to be a patient or family caught in the middle of daily conflict, and a keen remembrance & respect of what it means to be a resident doctor, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, bedside nurse, or nursing assistant. What will it take to remember this?
