In the hectic and crazy environment of the emergency department (read practice of medicine too), it is very easy to lose your connection with the human part of medicine. On daily basis we see pain, suffering, frustration, anger, hopelessness, and all kind of emotions reflected in the face and voices of our patients. We see diseases, they see a truncated future. We talk about treatment, they talk about how this is going to change their life.
Let's not forget why we went into this field, why we go back to that our second home called "hospital" day after day, night after night.... It's for them.
Watch these videos, then forward them to all health care professionals you know.
Have a good shift.
