I am a very spiritual person. I often have trouble separating my work, conversations with co-workers and my patient's from the ideas and ethical way my faith encourages me to conduct myself. My faith guides how I care for my patients. I try to pray often before I start my shift. I know that it positively impacts the way I feel and changes the course of my shift and care of my patients. Glad to know that studies have been done on such a touchy subject for most workplaces.

This was very informative. I have to be careful to be supportive of faith practices without giving the impression that I am favoring one faith over another.

This was a very good article. I encourage other people to read this. Patients are about healing, mind body and soul.

Great article. I think many units could benefit from this practice. I know inclusivity is a big issue, but prayer can be non-denominational. Just the quietness of such a moment can prepare you to face the storm before you.
