Day 22: See the unseen

It takes an army of workers to make a hospital run. There are many, many unseen employees in every hospital working for the good of the patients. As doctors, we are often seen as the face of the hospital, but we know that we would not be able to work effectively without the help of so many others. Today, make a special effort to see those unseen workers. See them, smile at them and thank them. See the janitors, cleaners, porters, security guards, engineering, kitchen services, receptionists, switchboard operators, operating theatre sterilisers, lab technicians, etc. There are hundreds of unseen quiet workers in the hospital. A tap on their shoulders with the words, “Thank you. My patients and I appreciate your good work” may just make their day.

  1. I so love this post because I also feel that these workers work so hard and are not paid well. I do my best to smile and chat with these lovely people who also go out of their way to make a hospital run smoothly.
