Blessing of Hands


“We are trying to do a blessing onto those who are being a blessing to our patients,”says Roland Perkins, a chaplain at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. “We are doing a blessing of the hands for Nurses Week. I tailor a blessing towards what people were doing or what their specialty is. I want the blessing to be more intimate and personal for each person. We really support and encourage those who are using their hands to provide care to those who need care, whether it might be the patient or their families.”
