32. Compassionate Care: Empathy is crucial in hospital settings.

0 page


Imagine riding in a car with your friends, and everything goes black. The next thing you know, you are lying somewhere, but you can’t see. You’re in indescribable pain. You can’t speak. You can’t move your head.
Then you feel a soft touch on your hand and arm, and a caring voice explains that you were in a car accident. This person squeezes your hand and says, “I’m here.” Those two words make a world of difference.
This is the story of Marcus Engel. Marcus has used his experience to write books for healthcare professionals, teaching them how to better communicate and treat their patients compassionately. In this episode, I talk about some of Marcus' tips for compassionate care and why HSPs are well-suited to care professions.
