February has flown by - It is hard to believe that March has arrived. I have been busy the last two weeks setting up my clinic (family nurse practitioner).
When it comes to picking out a color scheme, I usually head for the tans and yellows, but I think the colors in the clinic are perfect (green, cinnamon, and a pale yellow). My vision for the clinic - warm and comfortable. I want my patients to feel welcome.
I envision my clinic as a place where patients are more than a number. I want to know the patients by name. I want to remember to apologize if they have to wait. I want them to know they can ask questions. I want the patient to feel like they can call anytime they have a concern. I will always remember to say "thank-you" to the patient for allowing me to be part of their healthcare team. I refuse to forget the golden rule.
A little about my training - the last two weeks I haven't had the energy to get up and run in the morning. So, after working at the clinic, grading papers for the online classes I teach, I have been riding the stationary bike. I get a couple of miles a night.
