Caring for the Caregiver

 We have 2 excellent nurses (I want use their names without permission) at Baptist South involved in the Jean Watson Caritas Coach Education Program. A goal for all three of us, along with the hospital administration has been to create a caring room for staff. My job was to do a painting that would help decompress, if for only a brief moment, the stress level of being an Intensive Care Nurse.The staff voted on a topic (seascape) and I painted a very large 4'x4' canvas which was hung yesterday in the Caring Room. I am so happy to be a part of this project and think so highly of this caring staff. I will get a photo of the room after its completed and post on this blog so you can tell me what you think.
