Gave a farewell dinner last week to one of the nurses who has left the department.
it's the usual occasion for best wishes to be exchanged, promises to keep in touch to be made and group photos taken.
so, i was most surprised when my colleagues & i each received a gift from the nurse concerned....
maybe we said, taught or did something or encouraged her in ways we didn't even realise. i remembered her from her student nursing days & have seen her pass thru the rite of passage from a blurry-eyed student to a confident staff nurse. even attended her wedding.
she will be missed much.
reminds me about the way our country is managed. there must be ongoing brain drain in every industry & the biggest beneficiary is the Little Red Dot down south.
but i digress.
