Nurse supports patient through painful procedure

A patient lying in a hospital bed while a nurse holds their arm and looks at some medical equipment. Text overlaid reads "Nurse supports patient during painful procedure."

“When I had to have a particularly unpleasant medical procedure, I couldn’t have sedation because of my meds. I laid there whilst it was going on and couldn’t help crying. The nurse immediately took hold of my hand and held it, all the way through, until it was over. A little thing, but it meant so much to me.

Little acts of kindness matter.”

We couldn’t agree more Kaye – thank you so much for sharing how much that nurse’s act of kindness meant to you.
