"...through healthcare, we make great contributions to change, a change for the better..."
Karen Isaza, General Studies Student
TranscriptMy philosophy of healthcare is based on equality among others, quality of care, and wholeness of the broken. When it comes to helping others, especially through healthcare, we must offer nothing but the very best of us. We should offer more than what is needed. We should understand pain and brokenness. And if it is not possible to understand it, we must at least learn to cope with it. Physical and emotional brokenness brings out the vulnerable side of an individual; it brings out the side that needs a hug, the side that would love a simple warm smile of support when all hope seems to be thinning out with time, the side that yearns for company, for love, and for compassion. Personally I think that, as a healthcare provider, we carry on the responsibility of making a difference in our patient's life. I will make a difference. I will make my patients feel valued and show them that I, not only as a healthcare provider, but as a human as well, actually care. Only by the simple fact of their existence and my capability to help is more than enough of a reason to be their for them and make a difference. I will provide them with 110 percent of effort and positive disposition. Most important of all, my philosophy states the reasons we must act this certain way; because, through healthcare, we make great contributions to change, a change for the better, spreading God's love and compassion, which at the end of the day, is what matters and touches our patients the most.
