Recently, I was hospitalized several days for an illness. I was completely miserable.
After a full day in a crowded emergency room, I was finally admitted to the hospital. When I arrived in my room on Jefferson Ward, it was evident that the night housekeeping staff had poorly cleaned and prepped the room. In addition, the hospital bed was terribly uncomfortable. It consisted of an air mattress that was programmed to adjust the air pressure every minute or so. It was all a bit depressing.
The next morning, a very warm, attractive woman came into my room. To protect her identity, I will call her Grace. Grace was cheerfully talkative and offered to be of assistance in any way she could. She asked me why I was in the hospital and took an interest in my comfort. Full of joy and positivity, Grace energetically moved around in a jolly manner while performing her duties, attempting to uplift my spirits along the way.
