Working on Christmas sucks, but not nearly as much as being a patient. Because we, as nurses, are so sensitive to that we tend to love decorating our respective nursing units. Please enjoy some of these lovely nursing unit holiday decorations and share yours!
I know nurses aren’t the only people working on the holidays! If you are a firefighter, police officer, paramedic, EMT, physician, or another public servant that has some holiday awesome decor, holiday outfits, or are just in the holiday spirit at work, please comment below with a picture or tweet it to me @NurseEyeRoll with the hashtag #workfortheholidays or share it on my Facebook Page (search: Nurse Eye Roll) – can’t wait to see your holiday spirit!
Given all that has happened in the country recently, I think it’s especially important for us to support one another. Thank you to every single public servant out there. I will be working this Christmas and am thankful for all of you that miss time with your families so that you can care for others and keep them safe.Photo courtesy of Amber Dixon Photo courtesy of Amber Dixon Photo courtesy of Amber Dixon Photo courtesy of Jennifer Iversen-Curry Photo courtesy of Kim Christensen
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from my nursey home to yours. If you’re home this Christmas, I pray that you will have a joyous time with loved ones. If you’ve lost a loved one over this last year, I pray that your holiday season is filled with loving memories of them and support from those around you. If you’re working, I pray you have a delicious carry-in and that you and your patients have a smooth shift.
I would be regretful if I didn’t mention how thankful I am for this holiday. Gifts and decorations aside, I am humbled and thankful for the birth of Jesus. I pray that you are filled with his holy spirit this holiday season.
