Highlighting the importance of smile in the life of a nurse, the Minister said everyone in this world, even the most powerful or famous people, we humans can never be in the fullest or perfect form. Moreover, we don’t experience the fulfilment that is what we face every individual. We have different kinds of issues in life, so instead of becoming the victims let us overcome the issues or difficulties we face and rather live with a smile.
Dr Ranjan also appealed to the nurses to follow the philosophy of what they believe in.
Speaking about patient care, the Minister said that even when the patients were discharged from the hospital, they might never know their names but the love and care nurses provide while treatment will live with them forever. This is the most important part of the life of a nurse, Dr Ranjan added.
The minister further stated the temperament to be a nurse is there in Manipuri nurses, that is why our sisters are very popular and many of them got placement jobs in big hospitals outside our state.
