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.
I’ve never been more proud of our team. One of my patients, who is a mother of two, was unable to interact as she used to. Her one wish was to be able to interact more with her family: read bedtime stories, cheer at a game and chat over dinner.
My Shining Moment was a collaborative effort in caring for a very deserving woman. Our staff worked diligently to make our patient’s wish come true, including securing access to needed medical equipment and selflessly lending their expertise. Making this happen meant several staff members going above and beyond.
This effort was extremely meaningful to the patient. It’s an honor to work with such a hard-working staff who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our patients. Our team is thankful to work in a place where we can be of service patients in a special way. Operation bedtime stories: Mission accomplished.
