I just spent two days of my Fall Break filling in in the PICU at The Children’s Hospital. Doing my old job. I so enjoyed seeing my old friends. ♡
Since I only work there a few times a month or so as ECB (emergency call basis) status now, one of the things I have to remember to do each time I work there is make sure my eLearning assignments are all up to date and completed in a timely manner.
One of the lessons I just completed to be current on my assignments was a review of the emergency, disaster and Code Response procedures.
We have code blue, code red, code 99, code black, code yellow, code white, code Adam, code gray, code silver, and a bonus code green and code quick at one of our nearby facilities.
I passed them all with 100%!
But what about code pink?
I want to use those contact numbers for those in charge of the HICS (Hospital Incident Command System) and introduce a new universal code.
Anytime you’re feeling sad or down or unloved or abandoned or hurt or mistreated, just call a Code Pink.
I’ll volunteer to be the director in charge of making sure every Code Pink is handled with the utmost of care and follow up procedures.
The Code Pink cart would be pink. It would be stocked with chocolate. Lots of chocolate! And puppies. And bubbles. And tiaras and super hero capes.
It would rush to the scene of every broken heart with an instant repair. ♡
A listening ear and open arms.
A big dose of human kindness and love.
Can you imagine a life without love? I cannot think of a greater disaster.
Yet some people experience that kind of life each and every day.
Let’s show them differently. Show them our faith and give them some hope. Let’s show them love. God’s love.
Let’s call a Code Pink!
Three things will last forever–faith, hope, and love–and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Love and laughter,
