Hm, I don't have a "deathday" at my hospital. Actually, not many of my patients have died. I only know of one person who died, and that was yesterday when we had 5 trauma patients.


wow... never thought of labelling any day a 'death-day'.... I work in aged care and I'm very interested in palliative approaches to care. I did CPE to further understand the spiritual needs of the dying. "Precious in the eyes of the Lord are the deaths of His saints".... it is such an honour and privilege to be present in those final days/moments.


Yes. Weird. But at the same time -- interested.


Hope I don't offend anyone by this post. Its meant to be humorous. I always thought it was cliche when people said that you have to have a sense of humor when you work at a hosptial/morgue/funeral home, etc. But I do think it is a reality.

Death is truly an amazing thing, and I've experienced it as significant and beautiful in recent weeks.

Talk of deathdays is just one way to cope.

The weekends seem to be when a lot of patients her at BAMC (Brooke Army Medical Center) expire. I dunno, Josh. Sometimes a patient's death seems like a liberating and natural process, and other times it feels like it is premature and unexplainable...it is one of those great mysteries that we will have to grapple with for the rest of our lives.
