"...it is my duty to render service to those who may be coping with brokenness. I am a mother of three children, and had to bury my son several years ago..."

TranscriptAs I think about philosophy of healthcare I believe it is my duty to render service to those who may be coping with brokenness. I am a mother of three children, and had to bury my son several years ago, due to him being stabbed and rushed to the hospital. Within hours of arriving to the hospital, he was pronounced dead. Hopeful that the doctors were wrong, and in disbelief I fell to my knees and started to cry. The support I received from my family, friends, and coworkers was phenomenal. It helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. As I deliver service to others, I must be considerate of their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, in order for their healing process to begin. This can be done in the form of sharing encouraging words, or just simply listening to what they may have to say. After all, patients entrust that we, as caregivers, will deliver quality care on their behalf. By allowing God to guide us, this will assure that they will receive the best care possible
