"...which ultimately gave him peace..."
Michael Griffin, Nursing Student
TranscriptMy Philosophy of Healthcare can be based on two words: Dignity and Clarity. Although a patient's experience in the hospital may create a level of fear or uncertainty, my philosophical approach is to provide an environment that is conducive to the process of healing and curing. Dignity is significant for the fact that a patient should feel that the care provider is acknowledging the human element and treat them accordingly, rather than as an experiment. To keep from passing judgment and treat them as they are. Clarity can be derived from curing and healing an injury, or it can be accomplished by the support from family members or other loved ones for a terminally ill patient. A lifelong friend of my family was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, and is currently on his last days. He is like a brother to my father, and the love and support he gave to him on his last days provided a blast of clarity which ultimately gave him peace.
