'The most important aspect of this job is touch'

Comment

As an RN certified in healing touch, but more mportantly trained when touch and the art of nursing was important, it is a shame to see that we have to wait until patients are in hospice until we use are most gracious skill of 1:1 patient interaction. It has been well studied that patients who receive "touch" of a caring nurse use less pain medication and heal faster.
