I enjoy helping visitors find the people that they are coming to see because they are affected by what is happening to their loved one also. I feel like what I am doing by volunteering in the emergency department is helpful and necessary. The visitors are usually nice and just interested in finding their loved one, but sometimes they can let their emotions get the best of them, which is understandable. There was a man today who was very worried about his daughter and her treatment (so much so that the police had to come), but that shows you how much the family and friends of a patient are affected by the situation and that is something that needs to be understood to understand some behaviors.
