Empathy and care from the nurses can help your patients to cope with very difficult situations. I love to keep my patients upbeat and use sense of humor when appropriate. For example, if my patient begins to walk after surgery, I might say hey, you did great. In no time, you can run a marathon. Or if my patients had an accident in bed, I can say, well, it's better to get it all out then keeping it in, or hey, you had a good one. By laughing together with the patients, nurses can help them put them at ease. Also, sharing care and humor with your co-workers can do a great deal in taking care of one another's minds, body, and spirits.
