ONE MINUTE OF HAPPY

Apr 16, 2020 | St. Francis News


One of the ways we are keeping patients connected to others while visitation is limited is through “One Minute of Happy.”  Each day our Patient Advocate reaches out by phone to patients in our care.  Along with a cheery greeting, she offers to play a patient’s a favorite song or to read a reflection or poem.  Often her calls turn into warm moments of sharing, with patients chatting about their pets, hobbies, special people in their lives, and what they are looking forward to.   Making the calls from her home as she practices social distancing, our Patient Advocate says she can feel the patients’ smiles across the miles and hopes they can feel hers too.  She says, “By making a genuine connection it becomes one minute of mutual happy and a brighter day for both of us.”
