‘DO NO HARM’—–THE FIRST DICTUM OF PATIENT CARE

‘DO NO HARM’—–THE FIRST DICTUM OF PATIENT CARE
I am in the grip of a disease
I am in pain—-please
Do not harm;
Do not handle me with
Unskilled hands and
Knowledge half—please
Do not harm;
My life is at a standstill
I am worried
I am concerned
For my loved ones—please
Be courteous;
I am surrounded by
A ‘team of strangers’
I am afraid—-please
Help me to adjust;
I have implicit trust
In my ‘care-takers’
I am in your total care—please
Understand;
I am an individual
Give me privacy
Help me back to normalcy
I am grateful,—-thank you.
