Find out which two six word stories have resonated with voters the most so far, and how to submit your own story.

We asked you to describe What I Do Matters in only six words, and you sure did. Browse the stories submitted so far and be inspired. We heard from virtually every corner of the organization and every profession: from Hope to White Rock to Burnaby, from nurses, physicians, social workers, executive and other leadership, administrative assistants, speech language pathologists, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, and so many more.

We got a glimpse at what our amazing people are doing in harm reduction, refugee care, operating room scheduling, environmental health, preadmission clinics, cardiac rehab, day programs for seniors, residential care, research and library services, volunteer resources, recruitment, diagnostic imaging, telehealth, home health, language services, the patient care quality office … the list goes on and on, six words at a time.

We also asked you to rate your favourite stories, and when we did our calculations using all our fingers and toes, we found we wanted to reward two stories with our six tokens of appreciation.

Racquel Cantada, an emergency nurse clinician at Surrey Memorial Hospital, submitted You matter. We care. ER 24/7. which garnered the most votes by far, with an impressive rating. And Erin McQuaig, a licensed practical nurse from Holmberg House Hospice, submitted Walk in someone else’s shoes today which got the most number of votes among the stories with the highest possible rating.

Congratulations to Racquel and Erin, who will receive six small tokens of appreciation for their contributions.

Remember that it’s never too late to submit your own six word story and inspire your colleagues with what What I Do Matters means to you. Email stories@fraserhealth.ca or leave a comment below.
