Say hello to Olivia, a nurse whose positive energy radiates. As a nurse, she understands the importance of each and every member of a healthcare team.
“The healthcare industry has helped me understand the power of compassion, teamwork, motivation & communication. As an ICU nurse, I focus on improving the patient experience in a way that positively affects families and care providers. Being a healthcare worker can be stressful at times, both mentally and physically. It is demanding. It is far from a set routine — you begin a shift not knowing what will be tossed your way. But you learn over time with patience and practice, to adapt & think quickly on your feet. This is why all members of the healthcare team are crucial, we all rely on each other to produce the best possible outcome for a patient’s diagnosis.“
Anyone who chooses this path in life deserves a thank you; not only during times of crisis but every single day.
“Thank you for all that you do for me, for a recovering stroke patient, for a 300 g preemie, for a post-op athlete, and for all the other patients and their families. As Maya Angelou once said, “They may forget your name, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”
I’ve been the patient on the other side many times, so I truly can appreciate every nurse, CRNA, MD, RT, pharmacist, lab tech, and every individual that chooses their job each and every day. “
