Comment on: HIV cases doubled in past decade
When people feel loved and secure they become more responsive. There should be no form of discrimination against anyone with a disease condition.
Loving people would create a better place to live.
Comment on: Effective nurse leadership requires visibility
For one to be a good and effective leader, one must be accessible by the subordinates. You are alone if you do not carry your subordinates along in the scheme of things.
Comment on: Former nurse still helping patients at 85
Nurses' hearts are made of gold. It is this love for human life and well-being that motivates into giving his/her best in the care of a patient.
It's rare to see people like Nellie Noyce, who would still have passion for their job at well over 80 years of age.
Comment on: Give COPD patients the right to end of life care
It is unfortunate such a vast number of persons are involved, yet no comprehensive plan exists for for their care.
Government should focus more on the welfare of its citizenry than on defense and other issues that are not priorities.
Even if the patient has no hope of survival, he/she should be cared for in such a way as to make him/her die peacefully.
Comment on: Nursing: a wonderfully social profession
Nursing could be said to be a social profession especially considering the fact you have to meet a lot of people, talk with them, keep patients company, counsel them and their families, etc.
But I have come to see that outside the work place, a lot of nurses find it so difficult to socialize.
You hardly find nurses on facebook, bloggers, twitters, forum sites, etc talking or writing about themselves. They hardly participate in those social networks out there.
I think we really need to improve upon our social lives as nurses.
