Helping Hand


Daily Prompt :  Help

Helping someone always makes me happy,

Be it a parent, a sibling or even my puppy

My patient, my friend, my child or my hubby…

 

The radiant smile, that look divine 

Ups the brightness of the one on mine..

Many a sleepless night suited me fine…

 

Grateful I am to be made an instrument

Happy to help, happy to have meant

that lil extra in that little moment….! 

 

May  I always  have that opportunity

To be of help, in any place, any eventuality!

In my profession a small mistake or inability to rise to the occasion in whatever manner can affect and even cost lives. So if I feel the patient would benefit from better expertise either in my own field  or in a related one, I never fail to ask help. I have been a teacher and member of the faculty in a Medical College –  even so, I am not averse to learning the ropes from others. With the medical field evolving as it does at breakneck speed, I strive not to be caught napping and for that I need help. Its not about an “easy fix”  – I am acutely aware that I deal with lives and at any time if I feel that the patient’s interests are best served by another opinion or another pair of hands I would never let over confidence or ego come in the way.
