Knowing that I am backed by the LMP and having a good working relationship with management has enabled me to speak freely about my feelings and ideas. For example, when too many visitors entered the building, I was very comfortable talking with my manager about the current visitation policy which she took to the building manager. We are now informing patients before they arrive about the number of visitors they may bring. I really and truly enjoy my job and the people I work with. Every morning, the midwife and I pull a card from a deck called "Empowering Questions and Affirmation Cards." It helps us start our day on the right foot.
