Nursing In The Fall

Nursing through the year presents challenges and learning experiences everyday.  The Fall season along with it's beautiful leaves turning colors, pumpkins and apples in the field, kids going back to school and the heat turning on at home brings along a whole season of additional medical problems.

In autumn there are less hours of sunlight and the crazy, almost unpredictable weather that ranges from freezing in the morning, warm in the afternoon and cold again at night lowers immune systems and sends patients of all ages off to the Emergency Room and doctor's offices with colds, the flu, ear infections and even exacerbates asthma.  People call out of work and students stay home from school.  A Nurse and their family may get sick and have colds too, but the nursing staff has to stay strong and keep on working so they can keep helping everyone else.


Nurses must be super angels watching over us and taking care of us when we are at our worst, and watching over themselves and their families all at the same time.  Through all the sniffling and sneezing, aches and pains whether from viruses or bacteria, remember to treat you, the nurse, with a little tender loving care, dress warm and be prepared. Don't forget to take your vitamins, keep hydrated and eat healthy too.

Keep a cozy blanket on the couch, the remote control nearby or even cuddle up in one of those cute blanket wrap warmers to keep the chill out of your bones and to take some time out just for you.
