"...we're going to have to listen more..."
Melissa Lee, Health & Biomedical Sciences
TranscriptMy Philosophy of Healthcare is focused on 5 words which are love, peace, comfort and hope. And, I believe without these words the healthcare system will downgrade because I believe we should treat everyone the same. Also, healthcare isn't just about giving out meds or a high paying salary. I also believe that as a nurse I will experience challenges everyday that I will be called upon. And, we are going to have to listen to our patients more and not be as talkative. This will allow our patients to find their inner truths. I also believe that I should have hope in every patient and it's OK to sit and pray with my patients. I believe this will help them have faith and hope in their situations instead of just curing them because I want to heal my patients too. [My] Philosophy of Healthcare to me means teamwork. And, I believe people are basically good and want to change. Therefore, I believe medical staff should work together to make a difference. I know we can't do our best because the healthcare system already involves racism (example towards criminals.) But how I look at it as things do need to change and we should treat everyone equally. I say that we have a tendency to be selfish and do what's not right and bring out wholeness in our patients. Therefore, we shouldn't focus on this problem, we should all look beyond it and use our imaginations to find a solution. Let's choose to go into the healthcare field because it's in our hearts and I hope you enjoyed my Philosophy of Healthcare.
