A Place of Equality…..We Hope?

All things being equal is their mantra and their praxis.

Every room is somewhat alike,

Every bed is made the same way,

The linens and pillow smell alike,

Every patient is uniformly immodest,

These patterns never change.

Vitals, fluids, meals, and rotating personnel,

It all comes in the most equalitarian way.

There are those who demand more than some,

But, their cries are met depending on the triage.

A caregiver knows no difference by what they see behind hospital fashion,

All things are equal in the sick place.

Would we want it any other way?

Would we want to be cared for at the expense of another soul?

Would we want to be forgotten because another person had a title?

Would we really want it any other way?

All things are equal in the mending place.

Each person receives care not based on

  • color of skin,
  • choice of religion,
  • or usual discriminating factors.

They are cared for because they are sick.

For all things are equal in the healing place,

Would we want it any other way?
