What is the value of patient care?
If you've ever been a patient you would know that answer.
Although nurses and doctors have to be sure not to get too close or
involved with their patients, there should always be compassion and
a soul within us that realizes the patient is frightened (often
terrified) may be in pain, may not have relatives coming up to see
them or are completely alone. Compassion with dignity towards the
patient is the key. If one can give compassion and relax the
patient then helping that patient as far as care-giving is much
easier. I don't know if you are asking for monetary value or not,
but, I sure hope it's because you want to be the best you can be at
this type of work and never lose compassion or take away the
dignity of the patient involved.
