Do nurses appreciate Thank You cards?!

Question: Do nurses appreciate Thank You cards!?
My father was recently in the hospital for 8 days; his care was exceptional, not just by the nurses, but by the aides, food service, transport and a student that shaved him!. How could I not send a card!. I wrote a short leter including all that were a part of his care!. Absolutely, if you feel a thanks is appreciated, by all means- write a quick note of 'Job well done- thanks!."Www@Answer-Health@Com

MOST nurses have hearts of gold and work their butts off and I imagine a thank-you note would be very much appreciated!. As you can see by SOME replies, we patients mean nothing to some nurses and we are forgotten the minute we leave!.!.!.

I prefer to believe that would be a minority speaking, for surely everyone would appreciate a genuine, warm "thank you" and an "atta girl" or "atta boy" for treating someone kindly while they were at their most vulnerable!.

Perhaps if such a genuine thank-you means so little to a nurse, it might be time for he or she to consider transferring to another section of the hospital!.!.!.!.I hear the patients in the morgue don't ring too many call buttons!Www@Answer-Health@Com

I am a nurse and I can honestly tell you "not really"!. We are so busy with so many people with needs and a million things to remember that they all just blend together and we even forget your names the minute you leave the hospital!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Certainly!. This is a job that goes unrecognized all too often!. They work very hard!. They appreciate your thank you and any form of generousity,Www@Answer-Health@Com
