When Nurses Cry

The viral picture of a doctor grieving after a patient died resonated with me. It has struck a chord in every other person who works in the medical field. A poignant image that happens all the time, it is replicated in the privacy of the staff lounges, in the restrooms, in the offices, anywhere nurses and doctors are able to escape for a few moments to grieve.

I have cried many times in my nursing career. After I cried, I went back to work. Such is the life of those who work in the medical field. There is always someone who needs our help, someone who needs his Dilaudid. But there are also times when I cried for joy.
