A Hard-Hearted Nurse

When my wife, Kathy, arrived at the nursing home, her mother tearfully said, “Please get me to the bathroom!” Kathy discovered that her mother had been overlooked by the nurse all day!

Her mother’s clothes were soaked in urine and she was not even fully dressed. Kathy asked for the nurse assigned to her mother.

When Kathy addressed her concerns, the nurse became defensive and combative, making excuses for her poor nursing care. Kathy was simply looking for an apology and some assurances that it wouldn’t happen again, but that never happened.

Proverbs 28:13 teaches, “He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.”

If you’ve made a mistake in your job, a simple confession and apology will heal many wounds.
