Simple gifts on the hospital floor
I think it’s safe to say that no one wants to spend the holiday season in the hospital. Whether you find this time of year inspiring, oppressive or a bit of both, the hospital tends to feel a little more alien than usual.
It’s a hard thing about the job of nursing. For many people December brings a slower pace to work. People and families come together. We open presents, eat too much and stay up late. Fireplaces get used, friends give gifts of cookies and neighbors take the time to chat despite the cold outside. In the hospital, though, it’s business as usual.
But that doesn’t mean it’s without its gifts.
