Bringing Comfort to Patients and Families
BWHers Share Their One Shining Moments
BWH Bulletin’s year-end issue is a time to highlight BWHers’ proudest moments from the past year. We asked you to share one BWH-related memory from 2015 that was meaningful to you, and you offered touching stories about colleagues, patients, families, events and milestones that inspired you. We hope you enjoy these remarkable moments.
My One Shining Moment of 2015 was when a family member called the floor to thank me directly for helping her father pass away peacefully. Her father was very sick and was transitioning into the comfort measures only phase of his illness during my shift. It was my priority to make him and his family as comfortable as possible during this sensitive time. He ended up passing two days later, but I will never forget his daughter’s gratitude. I was honored to be part of this intimate moment in this family’s life.
