Holidays in the hospitalCreated by:
I opened this topic because Christmas is near. I understand that not everybody celebrates Christmas so this topic is not limited such. As healthcare professionals, we spend holidays in the hospital. Traditionally, I spend both Christmas and New Years Eve in the hospital. Filipinos usually spend holidays with a lot of food! At Christmastime, we prepare food in the staff office, and we invite residents trainees from other services. We also invite nurses and other healthcare professionals to have dinner together. For New Year's, it has been tradition to watch fireworks together with other trainees, and 30 minutes before midnight, we gather in front of the emergency room to anticipate the fireworks. The camaraderie and festive environment in the hospital has made such holidays bearable for me. Please feel free to share your holiday experiences/ tradition in the hospital.
