a slight sigh

“alot of professionals in the healthcare sector work with their heart. so when they see such a case, their head says discharge- because they see him during the multiple transfers and see how uncomfortable it is, because they see how others are affected, and wonder if we are fit to provide the best care for him. but then the heart comes in, and they worry about the many hours he will spend at home alone and the quality of care there and doubt their decision to discharge. but we need to use our heads to think, and so now we can map out the available services for her and ultimately it is her own choice.’

‘when you talk to a client you should already have a purpose and goal. if you have a hypothesis, then ask them directly to find out what you want.’

‘The scariest thing about a social worker is when they have no curiousity about clients’
