Just a ……

Wow, I cannot believe how many times I have made this comment to people.  I have made this comment to patients, friends, and family. After what I have learned during the Telluride experience I will never make that comment again. I will expand that comment to include I will not allow any member of the health care team to refer to themselves as “just a”. Every member of the health care team has an equally important role in providing safe, high quality health care.  The patient, family, housekeeping, dietary, volunteers, maintenance….the list is immense and each person has a vital role in the health care team.  Words truly do have meaning!
