"In health care, we all have stories," said Mary K Johnson. Patients and providers alike. Providers' stories are often about the times when a patient or family member has touched their heart in a particular way. By putting the experience into a story, "they can carry it with them for the rest of their life," she said, "and use it as a reminder of why they do this and why it's all worthwhile." Mary K has amassed a lot of stories during the 26 years she has spent at HCMC as a registered nurse. She also knows that when patients’ share their own stories with her, together they find new and important information that can be used to guide their care. And in the process of sharing each of their stories, Mary K and her patients are creating a new story together.
