Compassion doesn't only happen at the bedside.
Recently, after a long shift, two Baystate Medical Center nurses took the time to help a woman who was lost in one of the hospital's parking lots. Read what assistant nurse manager Casey Lackenbach RN had to say about Kimberly Korenewsky RN and Jade Littlefield RN.
“I would like to extend a congrats to you both. After a long shift, you took the time to help a lost woman in the parking lot find her car. During this search, she shared some of her story with you and how stressful her husband’s illness has been on her. As if her day could not get any worse, once her car was found, she tripped on the curb and fell. You both immediately returned to her side, called for help from the hospital, and stayed with her during her transport to the ED. While this was absolutely the right thing to do, what is most impressive is that neither of you thought twice about helping her in the first place. After a long day of work, we often try to leave work at work, but the truth is we are always nurses, every moment, every day. Thank you for being wonderful nurses.”
