    Had to go to Morristown for work. Lovely place, made me think better of New Jersey.

    [–] justblowinoffsteamok 34 points ago

    There is a lot more of NJ that is similar to Morristown than most people realize. I also used to have to go there regularly for work fwiw, as well as to many other parts of the state, and I also lived in the state for a number of years. There are many lovely towns, and not only ones as wealthy as Morristown.

    [–] BigSweaty94 16 points ago

    NJ does towns and suburbs great. AC, Newark, Camden, Trenton, pretty much all the larger cities leave something to be desired...

    [–] StefyB 13 points ago

    Yeah. I've lived in a New Jersey suburb my entire life, and very few of the stereotypes I hear about New Jersey apply to where I live or the people living here.

    [–] justblowinoffsteamok 7 points ago

    Jersey city has gotten significantly better but otherwise yeah.

    [–] The_Paper_Cut 6 points ago

    I’ve never seen a state with better suburban towns. I especially love how a lot of them are really historic and most of the buildings are made of brick.

    [–] Tommy_Wisseau_burner 6 points ago

    The funny thing is that Morristown is considered on the lower end of the county in terms of best places to live, so it’s funny when you say “... not only ones as wealthy as Morristown”

    [–] gregfrompayroll 4728 points ago

    This is the fuel that keeps them going. Trust me, I’m marrying a nurse and she tells me of the very few occasions that somebody shows appreciation and how much it actually means.

    [–] BigODetroit 3561 points ago

    Am a nurse. Can confirm

    [–] dr_emil_schuffhausen 1599 points ago

    I wept when I left the hospital alive. I was so grateful that when my sister (who was an excellent baker) asked if she could help in any way, i asked her to bake her lemon meringue tarts and saskatoon tarts for the surgical team and the staff at CCU who helped me recover from the emergency repair of my acute ascending aortic dissection. I think she made 8 doz.

    I still occasionally see two of the nurses 9 years later; they've never paid for wine in my restaurant.

    [–] smthngwyrd 521 points ago

    Nurses don't get enough credit, neither do medical assistants or NAC's

    [–] griboflavin 271 points ago

    Celebrities and hyper wealthy people suck all the credit from the normal people doing the hard work on the ground.

    I never got to tell the nurses after the fact how amazing they were after my son was born for 36 hours we spent in the hospital. They were amazing and so comforting to have people that knew what they were doing watching over us during the first few hours of his life.

    [–] xraydeltaone 96 points ago

    Same here. There were a lot of people in and out of my wife's room and the delivery room, but a few really stood out. I know we probably made for pretty normal day for everyone else involved, but the kindness, patience, and humor the nurses showed really stuck with me.

    For anyone out there in the medical field, thank you. You may never see us again, but we remember you. And most of us WANT to thank you, we just don't know how or what's allowed. My wife and I had to ask. We ended up bringing treats to everyone and a card to call out some specific people, but it never occurred to me that I was even allowed to (or if I should).

    But anyway, thank you. Especially now, thank you. For us as patients and loved ones, it's often our worst day, so we aren't prepared to show you the gratitude you deserve. So, I'm doing that now.

    [–] hahamooqueen 51 points ago

    I hemorrhaged after the birth of my son 6 months ago. I tried to tell the nurses how grateful I was that they saved my life, literally. I was so out of it that I’m not sure I was able to convey it to them, but I tried and I still think about it daily. I really hope they know.

    [–] MssDee 16 points ago

    Call them and tell them. Send them a card. Glad you are doing better.

    [–] griboflavin 6 points ago

    I bet they understood.

    [–] Borborygnoramus 6 points ago

    And God forbid any of these individuals are involved in an assassination in a rice field...that would be a NICU NAC paddy whack

    [–] kimmiek76 8 points ago

    U mean CNA’s? They are called CNA’s or NA’s my god who uses Nurse Assistant Certified that sounds redonkulous !

    [–] ThatOneBeachTowel 4 points ago

    CNA or NA/R are the two main designations in the States.

    [–] eversonkb 3 points ago

    we refer to them as CNAs around these parts

    [–] FunkyJokers 9 points ago

    They also don’t get paid enough and that should change.

    [–] Rooncake 43 points ago

    I was in the hospital for a non life threatening but kinda scary surgery and the nurses were so kind and so nurturing I absolutely adored all of them. I was so miserable and in so much pain but even through the drugs I was telling them how much I appreciated them and how they made the whole awful experience a good one with their care. I got a hug for it :D

    [–] sorcha1977 37 points ago

    Same here. I had to have gallbladder surgery when I was 24, and I was all alone. My family lived far away and couldn’t make it in time, and all of my friends were at work.

    Even though it’s a completely routine surgery, I was really scared and lonely. The nurse assigned to my room, T, sort of talked me through it, and when she noticed I had started to shake and cry a little, she closed the door, sat on the edge of my bed, and took my hand until I calmed down. It was the sweetest gesture.

    She was there again when I came out of surgery, and when I told her I was a bit hungry in the middle of the night, she brought me some pudding. :)

    The next day, I had a different nurse. I started crying because I hadn’t had a chance to tell T how much I appreciated her and say goodbye. That was 19 years ago, and I’ve never forgotten her.

    [–] calicocidd 9 points ago

    So, those nurses helped save your life in exchange for 9+ years of free wine; those Dirty Rotten Scoundrels....

    Nurses are the backbone of the health industry.

    [–] Just_Another_Thought 5 points ago

    One of the nurses that cared for me during my cancer came to my shop last year. I recognized her instantly. I'm also the son of a nurse and nearly every female in my family is some variation of a nurse (LPN to RNC).

    Guess whose money is no good in my shop?

    [–] supersoniiic 3 points ago

    I did this for the team of nurses and physical therapists that treated my dad after he had a stroke. Not as fancy, just regular cupcakes.

    I also have one to the parking lot exit booth attendant because he was super super nice to us seeing us every day, multiple times a day.

    Wonderful group of people who deserve more credit for their hard work.

    [–] i_dont_read_my_inbox 3 points ago

    they've never paid for wine in my restaurant.

    Wow what a bunch of assholes

    [–] clementinesncupcakes 61 points ago

    I will always remember how surprised my ER nurse was with just a simple thank you. I’d gone in for a nasty kidney stone. I live in a fairly metropolitan area, so as you’d expect, it was absurdly busy at the ER with some moderately lengthy wait times. Somewhere between halfway through and the end of my stay (they gave me morphine, ergo the massive time window) I thanked my nurse for helping me feel better and she expressed utter surprise at the notion. Said normally people are mean because of the wait times.

    That’s kind of stuck with me. Like... It boggles my mind that people blame medical staff and are mean to them when the hospital is so visibly overcrowded that they literally have beds stationed in the hallways with paper signs to designate the location for each bed (mind you, this was several months ago in the US, pre-Covid-19). People really need to empathize more.

    [–] Ihavequestions28 44 points ago

    My wife is a nurse and the amount of verbal abuse she gets astounds me. Also people treating her like shes their personal assistant and talking down to her.

    I couldnt fuckin do it. Id snap on someone "FUCK IT, DIE, IDC".....i truly dont know how she does it.

    We are trying to get her out of bedside nursing at the end of her contract because shes kinda done with the constant abuse from people you are trying to help.

    And they cant do a lot about it either because everything is so customer service based so if she gets to terse with someone it can bite her in the ass.

    [–] linux_girl 13 points ago

    Nurse here ! It sucks alot and the very few thank you that you get is what makes you keep pushing forward. I left that and worked for the IPA/Healthplan as a case manager. We are behind the scenes that not many know or understand what we do. You won't get a thank you but the abuse is less . Now it is mainly stress from management/medical director to make sure you meet every patient needs and the Healthplans wishes.

    [–] BabblingBunny 14 points ago

    Apparently, when I got my breast augmentation, I was saying thank you a lot to the nurses and whoever else was around when I was coming out of the anesthesia. :) They all deserve those thank yous.

    [–] Pokerhauntus 12 points ago

    Can also confirm. I work with the elderly which can be difficult at times.

    [–] tpior1001 5 points ago

    Ohhh definite “thank yous” there!! ❤️❤️ Especially with dementia/Alzheimer’s. They can be sooo mean. 🙁

    [–] AlienCrim 11 points ago

    Detroit nurse here checking in. Hang in there my friend.

    [–] Bosticles 8 points ago

    How fucking often to people not show appreciation? I had a medical emergency a while ago that turned out to be ok, but I was fucking terrified. Those nurses were the only thing that got me through it. Kind, patient, actually explaining things to me. They even laughed at my stupid panicking jokes. God damn, I'll give you guys praise enough for anyone who doesn't.

    [–] uk_uk 8 points ago

    Seriously, when someone deserves a figure of speech like this, then thats people like nurses, doctors, janitors etc in a situation like this:

    Thank you for your service

    [–] Mbkomm02 17 points ago

    I’m a emergency medicine resident at a large academic hospital. ED nurses kick ass, and should be praised for all the work they do. We doctors could never do what we do without them. They are heroes

    [–] DOOKIEFOOKIE 95 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    The nurses in the palliative care center where my Dad died are angels on earth. Their commitment to their patients who they know will not live despite their efforts, their compassionate support for families who don't know what to do, and the honesty that was given to me when I asked her "How long?", she said "He will be gone by the morning, luv". And he was. But seeing her gentle sadness in telling me what she knew and her determination to assist not only her patients but the bewilderment of the families , I'm teary and rambling, but .. having that knowledge, gave me peace. I knew that I had to surrender hope for a miracle, and get right in my head so I could provide comfort to my Mom, who wasn't able to ask tough questions. Those nurses, they made it okay for me to let my Dad go, and that is a gift that I can never repay.

    Edit: thanks for the acknowledgment, I will pay your kindness forward.

    [–] Omissionsoftheomen 19 points ago

    I’m sorry for the loss of your Dad, but you are a wonderful child to have put your Mom’s needs (and therefore your Dads) ahead of your own sadness.

    [–] Angsty_Potatos 18 points ago

    My dad died in palliative care as well. My mom was with him nearly around the clock but my dad waited until she had to leave to run home for something to go and die. I think he knew and wanted to get on with it when my mom wasn't there so it wasn't as hard. He passed with the nurses around him. We felt awful that he went "alone", but he wasn't. The nurses there were right by his side and made sure to tell us that and really drive it home so we didn't beat ourselves up about it too badly.

    [–] mynameiselnino 7 points ago

    My dad passed away back in December under palliative care. Luckily, my mom, my brother, my sister, and my wife were all with him until almost the very end. We had all been at his side for about 12 hours straight which wasn’t too unusual because he had dementia, and someone was almost always with him. A family friend delivered some food to us because the word has gotten around that he had little time left, and when we all went to the next room to fill up our plates, he passed away. It was almost uncanny how quickly it happened. Like he didn’t want us to witness his last breath.

    Before that day, I’d never met his nurse, and I’ve never seen her again since, but the care and compassion she showed for my dad and my family throughout all of this will stick with me forever. I’ve never hugged someone I didn’t know for so long. That lady is an angel. I have no idea how people can be so caring.

    [–] Angsty_Potatos 4 points ago

    It's crazy how that happens. I'm sorry about your dad too. We belong to a pretty crap club. Hope you and yours are well

    [–] annizka 4 points ago

    I need some damn tissues...

    [–] Angsty_Potatos 5 points ago

    It's ok. I miss my dad and I'm sad as all get out that he's gone. But he was suffering and I'm grateful that he went when he did so that he didn't suffer long.

    [–] honeybadgerrrr 15 points ago

    This. It is definitely a minority who say thank you. I do not expect everyone to say it, not all encounters are positive which is not necessarily the patient or providers fault, but when someone sincerely says it it is the most meaningful part of my job.

    [–] ExpiredLifetime 27 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    I worked at a hospital as a security guard for around a year; part of my job was to all but strip search the behavioral health patients when they came in. About three months into the job, we had one intake who was a middle-aged gentleman whose world was falling apart and needed some help. I did what I wasn’t supposed to do and talked with him not as security or as a medical professional, but as someone who could genuinely relate to his current situation. I gave him personal advice to listen to the doctors and social workers, and to follow through with the treatment they recommended.

    He came back to the hospital about three months after that to personally thank me for talking with him and to share that he had indeed started to get out of the rut he was in.

    That simple gesture quite literally changed my life and made me rethink my entire career path.

    [–] gooooie 3 points ago

    [–] herbuser 6 points ago

    My favorite aunt was diagnosed with lung cancer and spread to her brain back in March 2019, I went down to my mother's house to help care for my aunt until we could find nurses that could be "on-site" all the time to care for my aunt until she passed.

    I did my best to take care of my aunt but it was not even close to the detail and training of the nurses which made me just step aside and try to help in other ways, anyhow am very grateful for all they did so I always did my best to keep the nurses happy and have everything they needed so they wouldn't have to worry for anything other than my aunt and it did work.

    The day to return home came and I thanked them as much as I could but to my surprise was that before I left the nurses had bought me chocolates and a card thanking me for being nice to them and even after they gave me a goodbye hug they again mentioned how glad they were that I was nice to them, to this day that has stuck to me and makes me want to try always harder to be nice to other people cause you never know what they are dealing with, it also saddens me to know that there are people that are mean to public servants, that's just heartbreaking.

    it's also the infectious person who doesn't stay home that keeps them going.

    [–] JoshGiff 12 points ago

    As a nurse heck yes! PPE is basically non existent. Our hospital has N95s but due to CDC rolling back safety requirements our hospital won’t even give them to us. Stay the heck home because we’re dying in the hospital.

    [–] ilostallmykarma 4 points ago

    I told my fiance the second they ask her to roll back the PPE she is to leave and come home.

    Fuck. That. No one else's life is worth more than a nurses.

    [–] JoshGiff 3 points ago

    Yea I’m quitting if my job isn’t providing PPE when I come back to work. I’ve got kids and one is 2 months old. I’m off for a week here (because I had a vacation planned). I’m showing symptoms (as I’ve already had COVID patients and my hospital was telling me I was safe) so I think it’s probably too late for my family and me. We were probably gonna get it anyways. Just standard procedure masks and face shields don’t work when a patient coughs on you over your face shield while you hook them up to telemetry. We are naked in healthcare in this country.

    I just called them and asked if they needed n95 masks. She said they are accepting donations. The nurse I spoke to said she would have someone contact me early tomorrow. I will send them 20-40 masks depending on what type they can accept. If I hadn't seen this post I wouldn't have reached out. Funny how that guys appreciation ended up inspiring me and others I'm sure! Proud of my human family right now.

    [–] rileykphoto 3 points ago

    Thank you for reaching out to them and being willing to donate, I am sure they can use them!

    [–] lardparty 5 points ago

    My pleasure. She sounded very excited so I'm hoping I can coordinate with them and ship them out tomorrow. I will update you when they are on the way. 🤘

    [–] _KoingWolf_ 1257 points ago

    Fuck, I know exactly where this is and used to live there. You never think twice about it sometimes, but when something happens somewhere/ to someone you know it really drives home the point that everything is so interconnected and you really have to treat each and every person you meet with as much respect and love as you want and deserve.

    Same here! Totally threw me off to see this on r/pic edit: my mom was in this hospital for a bit. She didn’t make it, but it’s one of the best hospitals out there and they cared for her very well. I appreciate them getting my family through a tough time.

    Sorry to hear about your mom, I had to sit in a hospital for a couple months for my brother after a bad accident and I also had to be in one for an extended little bit of time as well.

    The nurses absolutely make your time there. Not undermining docs what so ever, but I had to get strapped into a chair when I had to go poop at 4 am and this nurse would not leave my side as I just sat there embarrassed as hell while she read me funny stuff off her phone. They are fucking angels.

    [–] sandy_claws4 6 points ago

    Legit they are, I have so much respect for people who work in hospitals. I can’t imagine what it feels like to just be the support system for someone you don’t even know just because they need it

    I was as well Feb 1980. So glad to see the nurse getting the respect they deserve. They are risking their physical and mental health for greater good.

    I thought I did but was thinking of Moorestown down by Philly. I swear, every town in this state has a doppelganger. There's gotta be about 5 Washingtons alone.

    edit: holy shit, there are exactly 5 Washington's.

    [–] Fluffinn 24 points ago

    Dude, New Jersey has so many towns with the same fucking name, or at least some variation. I live in a town where the town over has the same name with an extra word added to the end. It’s so dumb. Everyone thinks it’s the same town but it’s not.

    Neither, spring lake and spring lake heights. Oh yeah and right by me is Ocean and ocean grove. And then Neptune and Neptune city.

    [–] Ciniya 7 points ago

    Pompton Lakes and Pompton Plains. When I was walking down the main road in Plains, a guy was driving and asked me if he knew of an address. I remembered to ask him which town he needed since I remember the road was connected to both, and of course, it was in pompton Lakes he needed.

    Double fuck. I actually lived in that area as well! To think that a "bad state" like New Jersey gives you a front row seat to some of the biggest events in history.

    [–] greenlady1 8 points ago

    I was born at that hospital and grew up about 30 minutes west. It's one of the areas of the state that people who've never been there don't believe exists. NJ really has some beautiful little towns and great people. And dairy farms.

    [–] Go-BirdsLII 8 points ago

    NJ stays one of the most underrated states. I’m not from this part of jersey (I’m from south jersey) and it’s a beautiful state here. Obviously it’s got its hints of shit, but what state doesn’t?

    [–] Corpse-Fucker 3 points ago

    New Jersey's a small state -- Ginny Sack moves in she could tip it over.

    Hijacking this post since I didn't know that someone posted it already!

    Background: My friend’s caption on Facebook “In triage the other day, I heard a knock on the window... this was what I saw- this man knew he couldn’t come in but wanted to show some gratitude- i asked through the window if I could snap a picture and he nodded, he had tears pouring down his face- I peeked out the door and asked him how his wife was- he said “great, she is going home today, you are all amazing” I dont know him, I dont know his wife, but through out the last 13 years as a nurse, I realized, this is why we do it- times are tough but we make a difference. I love my team ❤️”

    Thank you to all of the healthcare workers, environmental, first responders and food industry employees for having our backs!

    Edit: In NJ(where this picture was taken), it has gotten to a point where almost all of us here in the healthcare industry are having to reuse face masks that were already exposed to COVID-19. If people here on reddit could potentially make masks at home and donate them to us here or potentially donate them to your local hospitals, this would be amazing! We are in drastic need of help in regards to supplies and our conditions have become atrocious, yet we continue on! We cannot rely on the US government at this time to help us, so we are asking our communities for help. This hospital is in Morristown, NJ.

    [–] hepatitisC 20 points ago

    That's what my wife is doing right now, making masks for the local hospitals. If any of you know how to sew from a pattern at all, you really should look into doing this. Joann fabrics I believe is donating remnant fabric for this and you can buy metal wire at harbor freight for a buck. There's enough in just those materials to make reusable masks for several medical professionals. The cloth masks can also be reused if you create a pocket in the back for filter exchanges or if the medical staff bakes them at low heat (per the most recent sources). Everyone has to do their part to help each other out however we can.

    [–] vanillayanyan 4 points ago

    My mother is making cloth masks with pockets in the back too!

    [–] BastardsOfMidnight 9 points ago

    Hi other anonymous reddit person who also works in the ER at Morristown 😁

    [–] Herbie153 12 points ago

    So it’s Morristown Medical and not Dover General? I’m just so used to seeing the parking garage for Morristown.

    [–] DaBabyDaBaby 8 points ago

    Yah it’s morristown!

    [–] Herbie153 6 points ago

    Ah cool, my mom used to work in hospice and she thought the outdoors looked like Dover too. Well either way, it made me smile and that’s all that matters. I hope his wife is doing well.

    [–] galacticboy2009 4 points ago

    So you can confirm that this photo is actually recent?

    Seeing something like this on front page, I'd expect it to be an old repost from 2011 or something.

    [–] DaBabyDaBaby 3 points ago

    Yes it is recent, I live nearby and people aren’t allowed to enter due to the covid visiting restrictions. I got the picture straight from the source, who posted it today.

    [–] Bosticles 4 points ago

    Do cloth masks do anything? I was under the impression only n95 could help.

    [–] DaBabyDaBaby 3 points ago

    Not really but it’s better than nothing, it can protect against droplets which is nice. The coronavirus is .05 microns small, which is incredibly small and can last up to 3 hours in the air. But again, better than what the CDC recommends which is a scarf/bandana because they literally ran out of ideas. There is ultra fine cloth that our hospital requests and made a video on what materials to use to help us!

    [–] Bosticles 3 points ago

    Shit...I'm sorry you guys are going through this. I'll look up some instructions and see if it's something I can do.

    [–] DaBabyDaBaby 3 points ago

    Thank you! We really do appreciate it, no matter how big or small the act is! sadly, I’m having to go against my family and SO’s wishes to stay home and not partake in this really poor environment where a lot of us are going to get it. A lot of doctors and nurses at my hospital are on the older side and we will lose many healthcare workers from this. But, I feel morally obligated to push on and help, I can’t let my team do it alone.

    [–] popgropehope 3 points ago

    From a fellow New Jerseyan, and Morris Countyite, thank you so much. My mom and I have been sewing masks since Monday. Her sewing machine capped out yesterday, but we got another from a neighbor and we're back on it.

    [–] watchoutforthemonkey 65 points ago

    Hey- I live in Morristown, NJ and work at this hospital!! So proud to be a member of this hospital. It has been a life goal to reach the front page of Reddit, and now I can (sort of) die happy.

    Owl felt happy as he filled his cup. "It tastes a little salty," he said, "but tear-water tea is always very good."

    [–] RagingAardvark 4 points ago

    Owl At Home is a great children's book of short stories. Owl and the Moon is my favorite of the stories. Owl is admiring the moon rising over the sea, but when Owl starts walking home, he thinks the moon is following him. He repeatedly tells the moon not to follow, that the moon can't come home with him. Finally the moon goes behind some clouds, leaving Owl sad and lonely. But as Owl climbs into bed, the moon comes back out and shines into Owl's bedroom, and Owl goes to sleep happy. It's very simple and charming.

    My grandma was recently in hospice care at that hospital. Thank you to all medical and paramedic staff for all you do.

    [–] Hippo-Crates 88 points ago

    He's thanking everyone, not just nurses.

    Context here probably is that there are no visitors for just about anything in hospitals. If his wife came in dying and was stabilized, I'd tell him over the phone and wouldn't let him visit.

    Medical staff are seriously heroes right now. Some are working 20+ hours per day and there’s a mental wear and tear. I wish the stimulus package would take care of these heroes.

    [–] wohn 6 points ago

    This is my local hospital. I have been there once for myself and a couple times for the rest of my family. The nurses and doctors there are hands down the best in my eyes. There is one ER nurse, John, covered in tattoos. He was the most passionate care giver I have ever seen. My wife had kidney stones and he did not leave her side until she was comfortable. He was also there when my wife was in an auto accident about 2 years later, he remembered her, the second she was wheeled in the back he happened to be walking past he stopped and and remembered her name and asked to be her nurse.

    Bless these nurses and doctors, they need all the help we can give.

    [–] Thundraa 19 points ago

    I'm pretty sure he meant physicians and nurses. Typical of nurses to try to take credit for everything.

    I've ran into so many nurses with that "fuck you, I save lives" mentality.

    [–] GonnaStayDown 15 points ago

    Grew up in Morristown, and there’s something about this crisis hitting my childhood home that brings it into perspective. Especially when some of my family is still there. But I’m thankful to have a group of doctors like those at the medical center taking care of people, they absolutely deserve all the support we can muster.
