The Undercover Heroes
Today I was sitting in the Main Lobby eating my lunch. I work in a Veterans Hospital. I was wondering what am I going to write for my next story? I was sitting and wondering, then it hit me.
The Housekeepers. What wonderful people they are. I notice how clean and tidy everything is. The halls, the walls the bathrooms, Patients rooms, the offices, the eating area the floors etc. You know the Housekeepers are the hardest workers and the lowest paying workers in the Veterans Hospital.
I am a Supply Tech for the Operating Room. You should see them (Housekeepers) when the doctors are done with a patient. They join together and start cleaning that room from top to bottom.
They don’t complain. They just do their jobs with smiles on their faces.
When we had Covid patients going upstairs on the elevators, There was a housekeeper cleaning everything as they passed with the patient. The Housekeeper was on it, keeping everyone safe by cleaning.
There is one who works in the supply area where I dwell. He is very young and a sweet guy. He has a second job. I asked him what he does on his second job? He looks at me with a beautiful smile on his face and said with a great deal of pride “Housekeeping”.
To all you Housekeepers out there I want to say from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for keeping us safe. Thank you for keeping everything clean. You are the Undercover Heroes. Thank you.
