I'm sure you've read in one place or another about the impending nursing shortage, or the number of doctors being forced out of certain areas because of the rising cost of malpractice insurance. I can't do anything of real merit to address those issues, but here's something, at least. This blog is an open call for stories about the doctors or nurses or CNAs or any other healthcare employee who deserve recognition for their outstanding care.
You can email your story to
or you can write your story up on your own blog, and then email me the link.
Keep in mind these don't have to be anecdotes fraught with the drama of highly complicated emergency situations. In fact, sometimes the care taken in the every day things can mean the most to a patient or the patient's family. Your submissions can be as short as a single sentence, or go on for several paragraphs. You can submit your stories anonymously, or with identity revealed. If you let me know the name and location of the healthcare employee involved, I'll do my best to make sure they or their place of employment get sent the link to your submission.
