Day 8: Thank a nurse

The original title was meant to be “Touch a nurse”, but as a surgeon, it is not appropriate for me to suggest that doctors should be touching nurses willy-nilly. So, instead, go thank a nurse. Thank one of your hardest working colleagues. Find a special way, rather than simply saying “Thank you”. Buy a little gift, clean up after your own mess, buy coffee for the whole ward, help walk a patient to the toilet, help make up a bed (though I bet you’ll do a worse job than them), etc. There are many ways you can thank the nurses you work with everyday. Do it well today and see how they respond.

@MissSeaPeaches Be kind to nurses, imagine all your patients are relatives, drink plenty of liquids through your shift
