I've debated whether to post this here but will, as I know the message is an important one.
I've worked in healthcare as an RN for 30 years (wow)-95% of that time at the bedside. As you move up the hierarchy in healthcare facilities there is generally little to be inspired to greatness by. However, I found a blog (Running a Hospital) by a guy a few years ago who I think really gets it. Paul Levy is the President and CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and has at his core a burning desire for what is best for the patient! I am continually inspired by his blog and know others are too.
Running a Hospital is where I found out about Engage With Grace. Click on the slide above for a more in-depth discussion of this simple, but oh so important, project.


  1. I appreciate this post. I, too, think it is a very important topic.

  2. happy birthday!!! thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

    this post is so timely for me as I just lost a friend to cancer. They are important questions and ones I now know the answers to-realizing that we never know when it's time for the next stage.

    thank you.

  3. Thanks for visiting, you 2 fine women and bloggers! I'm honored.
