I too as a healthcare profession often times only see patients in passing. I quite often wonder how things turn out after I am gone. In my current position I only see each home health patients for a couple of hours before turning them over to their nurse case manager. I think every health care professional looks back. I thankfully live in a small community and run into family members, friends or even the patient's themselves. I think truly dedicated healthcare professionals have that compassion and concern about the lives they intersect with. Good job with that one Gavin!
