Message from Christy:
From the time I was a little girl, all I can ever
to be was a nurse. I graduated from Miami Valley Hospital School
of Nursing and have worked there ever since. During my 40 year career in nursing, I have worked on virtually every floor/unit in the
hospital and have cared for thousands of patients, from newborns to those in their 90's and beyond.
I love providing bedside nursing care and doing the
like shaving the older gentlemen, giving welcome back rubs, and
just taking time out to listen or to hold a hand. I have loved being able to touch people's lives in a positive and caring way.
Nursing has changed over the years. The educational
process spends more
time on classroom and book material and less on actual
patient care. There is more emphasis on climbing the clinical ladder. Hospitals are run like businesses. Unfortunately, the patients are
sicker and the staffing is shorter, so that there is less time to spend at the bedside.
In this fast paced world of health care, it is easy
for nurses and other
care-givers to become "disconnected" from their patients. I hope
that this web site will help in some small way to "reconnect" people by sharing personal stories and poems about positive nurse/patient
I hope you enjoy my website!
