Sock it to me!

Sock CroppedMy patient was wearing some great looking socks with a colorful peace symbol on them.  So Sebastopol, I loved it. But, it’s my job to make sure our patients wear the non-skid socks we provide to help prevent falls. So, I had to ask her to take off her cool socks and wear ours.

“Hmmm,” she said, a twinkle in her eye, “You just want my socks.”

“How dare you insinuate I would take your socks,” I said joking.  “But, they are really cool.”

Today, I received a little package in the mail.  There was a pair of cool socks with the colorful peace symbol, and a note from my patient.

This is one of the reasons I am a nurse.  It fills my heart with satisfaction when I hear one of my patients appreciated the truly human interaction that we had, and the care we love to provide.
