How do you try to make a difference in the lives of your patients?
I believe that the smallest act goes a very long way. As a PA who solely works in the operating room, I do not spend a lot of my time with conscious patients. It is because of that fact that I always make sure to introduce myself to everyone in the preop area. When I am in the OR waiting for the nurse to bring in the patients, they are always glad to see me since I am a familiar face. Since the concept of surgery and the general atmosphere of an operating room can be overwhelming, I know I have made a difference in my patients lives by giving them some comfort. If the roles were reversed, I would appreciate the gesture. As the saying goes, "Do onto others as they would do onto you".
