2. PeriAnesthesia Nurses Poem:  Submitted by Ann Hladky, Registered Respiratory Therapist, Royal Alexander Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta, February 2010:

 

"Recovery Room Nurses are the best,

Some would even say 'a step above the rest'.

A cool hand or a kind word,

Even drugs when the pain is absurd.

Having surgery without fear is rare;

It is a relief to wake up to people who care.

This is the week that you employ

Rightful recognition that I hope you enjoy."
