In the last 2 ½ months the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many of us an opportunity to declutter. The sanitation workers who collect the trash are busier than ever.
My husband Tom has a great sense of direction. You can plop him down in a city he hasn’t been in for 15 years and he’ll lead you to the nearest movie theatre or restaurant we liked through all sorts of detours without a pause. He’s even gotten us out of the woods (literally) with just a topographical map and a cheap compass after we missed a trail in a wilderness reserve.
We’ve been celebrating nurses this week and it’s fitting that Florence Nightingale’s birthday always marks the end of Nurses Week. Florence is legendary for being the pioneer of handwashing and hygiene. What is obvious today was not so obvious during her lifetime.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers of the world. When I think of my own mothers (I’ve been blessed to have two) words cannot capture their meaning.
Today marks the beginning of Nurses Week which always holds a special place in my heart. I love nurses and I love that for a whole week (not just a day) we all get to express our gratitude for and awe of nurses. After all, nurses give so much of themselves. What other profession, in the normal course of performing its job, doesn’t get to eat, use the bathroom or take a break and sometimes even gives its lives for the very people it’s serving?
While many Certified Legal Nurse Consultants and attorneys are still on COVID-19 lockdown, it’s even more important than ever to communicate with your clients. The courts may be closed, but attorneys are still getting new cases, working on existing cases and advancing the discovery process on all of their cases. And they need to hear from you as the CLNC® consultant during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I hope all is good and that you and your loved ones are healthy. Like you, Vickie Milazzo Institute wants all Americans to understand the risk of COVID-19 to the frontline providers and the healthcare system at large.
When it’s your first time, everything is exciting. Sure you’re nervous, but that’s a good thing, like the way you feel waiting in line for a roller coaster. Your knees are knocking and you’re thinking “I don’t know if I really want to do this.” Then you go on the ride and squeal, “Wheee! That was fun! Let’s do it again.”
