Patients view smiling as 'best' indicator of nurse skill


I am currently in hospital and appreciate both the efficiency of the nursing and their friendly manner. No-one can smile all the time, nurses are humans too, and being friendly doesn't always require a smile. I feel it as important that I, as a not too poorly patient, communicate my appreciation for their care and attention and give them a smile to help lighten the load.
