At the Upper East Side’s Lenox Hill Hospital, hearing “Hear Comes the Sun doo-doo-doo-doo” brings a smile to workers’ faces because of more than just the upbeat tune.
“That’s the song that my hospital plays every time a patient get off a ventilator or recovers and goes home,” nurse Claire Panke called in and told WNYC radio. “Some good news during the day.”
And they’re not the only ones who are embracing the power of music to celebrate the little (and big) wins and brighten their day!
Apparently Mount Sinai South Nassau in Oceanside, Long Island also plays the Beatles song when a patient is discharged, and Huntington Hospital (also on Long Island) plays it during shift change around 3pm, along with an inspirational note from the Vice President.
A little further upstate, at Northern Westchester Hospital, the staff cheers discharged patients as they’re leaving along with playing the song. This video of it happening below will melt your heart!
And a hospital in the Hudson Valley has started playing “Don’t Stop Believin” by Journey when patients are released.
In case you forget what that sounds like:
