Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The purpose of this poster is to pay special tribute to the nurses who share their gifts and talents to the people around them as they uphold the integrity of the nursing profession with their indiscriminate healing touch. On March 5, 2010, surgical services of Chambersburg Hospital was given the opportunity to introduce the very first Blessing of the Hands as part of the celebration of Nurses Week. There were four well-attended sessions of non-ecumenical gatherings officiated by Chaplain Yuen. The effect was spiritually healing with no room for words, just a simple exhilarating experience. This activity was simultaneously introduced and embraced by our sister hospital in Waynesboro with similar impacting significance. Planning and implementation was a success through the support of talented and hard working secretaries (Tina Crawford and Nicole Gsell).Three of the operating room staff (Tim Mangan, RN; Rose Kane, RN; and Shea Sullen, ST) shared their musical talents singing and playing the piano as the nurses hands were anointed with oil. Chaplain Yuen used oil for it is one of the basic ingredients of medicine in ancient times. The oil's fragrance and texture were both pleasing and soothing as a small amount was applied to the nurses dry hands. The attendees have nothing but positive comments about the ceremony that led to the increasing number of participants throughout the day. Blessing of the Hands was a 15 minute service, a time for personal healing, and professional renewal. One needs to experience this to fully understand its benefit. Your heart will lead you to develop a program that will suit your organization.
