Oh, baby. This is humankindness in action.
The Mercy Maternity Center in Redding has started a Humankindness outreach effort for their patients.
The OB clinic staff started a monthly drawing for patients who arrive early for their appointments. Each month, staff members donate new items to be part of a themed gift bag, basket, or box. Each member of the OB clinic staff has contributed special items to the drawing.
“We know that so many of our patients struggle in life, and we want our patients to know that we care,” said Romi Uribe, RN, BSN, Manager of the Mercy Maternity Center.
October’s basket theme was “Something Pink,” and staff collected a bag full of pink goodies such as lotions, shampoos, a scarf, paper weight, gift cards, candle, journal and more. November’s theme was a “Bountiful Harvest” food box, and they plan on continuing the project each month.
