Hospital staff always appreciate food or tokens of gratitude, whether you order a pizza for the staff, bring some donuts or prepare something snack boxes (pictured below) – it doesn’t hurt to sweeten up the staff particularly as they work such long hours! A little bit goes a long way.
But building relationships with hospital staff doesn’t stop there. Get to know their names, be prepared to make some small talk and remember that they don’t know you just as much as you don’t know them. Some familiarity helps particularly in the tense, stressful and difficult moments.
