Good Patient Care

We often discuss problems encountered in the clinics. However, we should also take note that there are a lot of positive things happening in our daily grind. One of them is often known in the Philippines as good patient care where patients bring a little something for the healthcare professionals (HCP). It usually often indicates that patients are very happy with the service rendered by the HCP. My favorite amongst the tokens of appreciation is fruits brought by patients from the province. Having experienced living in the province during the summer as a child, I appreciate the fact that patients bring in the best harvest as their token of gratitude. My most memorable good patient care story though is the sweet old woman who bought me a Big Mac when I was on duty on the eve of my birthday. What made it special was that the woman remembered my special day and insisted on taking her token of gratitude despite her financial struggles. It is the most special burger I will probably ever have. For the MIMS community, what would be your fond recollection of good patient care?
