Notice the ID badge


Another art journal page about hospital work. My handwriting is awful lately so it says...
Some people are just hospital people and some aren't. Mom and I worked in hospitals most of our work lives. We loved most everything about it. The hustle and bustle of the days and the quiet calm of the evening shift except the ER's. She did alot of transcription and managing. I did alot of clerical transcribing of doctors orders for the nursing stations. Try reading doctors handwriting all day,not easy! Mom went on to managing in Philly and I wound up in admitting patients. I know we both became burnt out when the hospitals became more about the money and not patients.

Great journal pages Joy. That's what so great about journaling; you can create art very personally - your thoughts, feelings, etc. Super!

Such a bummer when your vocation looses their sight on WHY they are there...some times I feel that in my job too...

I love the page...and handwriting always seems to show our hidden emotions!
