B positve fell short of delivery,
Anaesthesia is such a luxury,
Blood on the gloves forget,
‘Patient’ tears haven’t brusied me yet,
Dabbing the wounds,left a stain,
Scraping the gut, hasn’t started the drain,
Sinking beats slipping by,
Drying eyes search the sky,
Yet to see my life unfold,
Afterall I’m just 5 deaths old.!
Gyanban thoughts - The Doctors are still revered as next to God - but ask yourself - when did you last thank the Nurse ? Who stood by you till you recovered.Who took over when the Doctor was unavailable. Who kept awake because you needed the medicines on time ? Mostly they are ridiculed,and joked about,with sidey comments and senseless remarks more so, if it is a male nurse. It's time we evolve and give them credit.
The Nurse. These lines attempt to share the pain of these professionals,whom we very easily criticize or undermine.Rarely do we take a moment to see life through their eyes.Rarely do we take a moment to understand their mind.This post is dedicated to the countless medical professionals, who go through death, despair, pain on an everyday basis, and yet are expected to maintain their sanity.As if this was not enough - they additionally deal with ignominy.People just ignore or forget their contribution completely.
Think about those nurses who are new to the job.What are their emotions, their thoughts ? How do they get adjusted to death around them ? How do they manage to stay positive amongst this gloom? Sadly,many become insensitive or mechanical as a defense mechanism.How else does one not get affected ?
This post is a tribute to all those unsung heroes, who stand behind the scenes and yet play such a crucial role in our lives.
