A touch of compassion

By Big John

I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Dr Neville for bringing this 3 wishes project to our unit and now our health system, as a bedside nurse in the MICU, this not only gives the patients and families a beautiful dignified end of life celebration, it allows for us caregivers to have an outlet for our moral distress. Since this project has started, I have witnessed the staff in the unit with improved morale with regards to the care and compassion of our patient population with many comorbidities. So Dr Neville, Thank you, for your tireless efforts and commitment to this project on behalf of myself, our patients and families, the current and future staff of 4 MICU who may not even know they are at risk of moral distress. This project was desperately needed on both sides of the bed. "This is why"
