The Gift: An Inspiring Nurse Story

We all have our own nursing stories to tell our colleagues and even our children. But the greatest nursing stories of all are those that inspire others to understand why nursing is more than just a calling; why every experience can be considered a gift.
His name was Randolph and he was ninety four years old, according to the neighbor who found him early one morning.  He was apparently out for his morning walk to buy a newspaper when he collapsed on his front porch.When I first laid eyes on Randolph, he was lying helplessly, but conscious, on a gurney in the emergency area of our small local hospital.He was dressed in a grey tweed suit, white shirt and a bow tie.His eyes were bright blue and staring straight at me.
