Don’t dump patients on the floor!

the importance of proper communication

Thought to ponder:The hospital staff need to practice using dummies until they don’t dump patients on the floor:) Within the laughter this image invokes there is a serious point. In journalism I learned that for successful communication to occur there is a sender and a receiver. If you don’t take time to listen to the point the sender is seeking to convey, the message won’t be properly received. The hospital staff will need more practice sessions so they don’t have any other patients go off the table. Perhaps, they need a communication seminar.

Questions for reflection:

  1. When you had problems communicating your point to someone else, what did you do  to get your message across?
  2. Think about a time when you didn’t understand what someone was saying. Did you just ignore it and move on or did you seek to clarify what you wanted understood?
  3. How do you think we can be more effective communicators?

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
