Healthcare professionals have been lauded for their bravery and resilience throughout the pandemic. But what has kept them going through the most extraordinary of circumstances?
In recognition of National Hospital Week (May 9 - 15), MHA asked our members to share what inspires them as healthcare workers.
“I am inspired seeing how my nursing care can make a profound difference on patients and positively affect their wellbeing.”
-- Anna Zhyhymont, RN, Staff Nurse, Hebrew SeniorLife
“I realized how little non-native English speakers understood diagnoses and other information about their health conditions. I wanted to help them.”
-- Yin-Lai Tang, Interpreter, Tufts Medical Center
“I love to engage our patients and take their mind off why they’re here. They thank me not just for transport, but for the conversation.”
-- Annmarie Balthazar, Transport Attendant, South Shore Health
“Being able to support our healthcare teams during difficult and stressful times while also helping to support healthcare operations to ensure that patients are met with the best possible care provided.”
-- Sean Sullivan, RN, Nurse Manager, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton
Additional testimonials will be posted on MHA’s Twitter and Facebook pages throughout the week.
