I think the nurses I work with are really awesome.
They have a really hard job. I think every single one of the nurses I work with does a really great job and is incredibly kind and considerate.
So here's my dilemma....
Nurses week is coming up and I don't know what to do.
In an ideal world, I'd get every nurse I work with a nice present or little gift bag and that would be enough. However, I work with a LOT of nurses. There are probably eight or nine regulars, then a few more nurse supervisors, then a bunch of nurses' aides that I also wouldn't want to leave out. And then there are nurses that don't usually work with me but sometimes do. All told, this could be thirty people. And I suspect if I do individual gifts, no matter how hard I try, I'm going to leave somebody out. And as somebody who has gotten left out in these situations, I know that's the worst possible thing.
Another dilemma is that each nurse only does three shifts per week. So if I, say, bring in bagels or pizza one day, only half the nurses will get to partake.
In the past, I've bought two big cakes and done it two days in a row on days that as many of our regular nurses are around as possible. I guess I could do that again. I don't know... I just want to make sure I'm appreciating the nurses enough. Because they deserve it.
