Is Norma your Daughter?

A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph ‘s Hospital.She timidly asked, “Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?”

The operator said, “I’ll be glad to help, dear.What’s the name and room number of the patient?”The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said, “Norma Findlay, Room 302.”

The operator replied, “Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse’s station for that room.” After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, “I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood test just came back normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow.”

The grandmother said, “Thank you. That’s wonderful. I was so worried.God bless you for the good news.” The operator replied, “You’re more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?

“The grandmother said, “No, I’m Norma Findlay in Room 302.No one tells me at all”

Moral: We never give our sick ones moral motivation. Most of the patients are more mental than physical patients. Positive statements have a remarkable effect on the patients. So, always give your patients physical treatment as well as mental motivation.

    its true !!!. comforting words are more effective than the medical treatment. I requests the doctors and other medical attendants, please comfort the patients with positive words and give them confidence. this mind easing psychology is effective in most places…Parrents Vs. Children, Teachers Vs. students….and more….. I hope Sara will also do (doing) her part……………..Thnx
