As sure as the indigestion after a holiday meal, it would be wrong to end the year without a Best of 2018 rundown. And because you’ve already finished everything on your list (or because you’re studiously avoiding your list, we don’t judge), tuck in and enjoy. In no particular order, other than being in the top 18, (click on the pics to jump to the stories)…
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed reading the rundown as much as we liked writing it. We will leave you with Ed’s poetry:
Bah Humbug! – An Operation TLC Energy Waste Grinching Turn It Off Before You Go Go holiday reminder
‘Twas the week ‘fore the holidays, and hospitals ‘cross the nation,
Were as busy as usual (healthcare takes no vacation).
There are buildings to run, patients to be fed and be nursed,
For at UHN, above all else, the needs of patients come first.
And though we all know that it’s better to give than receive,
Deep down inside I truly believe,
Our friends at Hydro would not call us Scrooges for giving them less,
‘Cause keeping more for our patients is really what’s best.
So for those taking time for some rest and some cheer,
A tiny request that I hope you’ll hold dear,
That before stepping out from the bustle and flow,
You’ll take the time to Turn It* Off Before You Go Go.
Have a safe and happy holiday, UHN…and a big thank you to all who will be working!
It* = lights, computers & monitors (if safe to do so), copiers & printers (if safe to do so), fax machines (if you still have ‘em…and safe to do so), LED snow globes, appliances, LED eggnog warmers…and if you have blinds, please close them.
And from the rest of us at Talkin’ Trash with UHN, have the best, most freerange, organic holiday ever!
