Let's just say it outright: a hospital is a very hard place to work. Community staff care for people from every socio-economic and ethnic group, our patients and their families express the full spectrum of human personality and emotions, right here in our rooms and hallways.
Lewis Creek overflowed ... with hikers that is! January 3 was a beautiful day to enjoy Mother Nature with 65 (yes … 65) fellow hikers and their collective 8 to 9 dogs. Attendance more than doubled from the December group hike. I’m so pleased with the Community employee turnout and thank all that showed up. Every hiker did an awesome job and finished strong.
All gyms are cyclical as far as patron attendance goes and we are no different here in our employee fitness center. We have seen the usual tail off in summer time as school lets out and families take summer vacations together, followed by a spike in gym use in the fall when school is back in, which slowly declines in late October to early November and in turn gives way to a slow December.
Una de las cosas que más disfruto de nuestra cultura son los dichos y refranes. Uno de los más conocidos es, “Es mejor prevenir que lamentar.” Y este fue el dicho que vino a mi mente cuando se me informó que como empleada con el proveedor de salud más grande en la región central de California, se me requería vacunarme en contra de la gripe—para la salud de nuestros pacientes y la mía propia.
