"Did you know that the nervous system can transmit signals at 100 meters per second?  That's the reason why your hand will retreat fast enough the moment it touches a hot kettle.  This is just one of the many fascinating facts that keeps me interested in my work. 

Many people tend to address us as nurses or doctors because of the lab coats we wear at work.  Some of our elderly patients even thought they were here because they were diagnosed with mental health disorder as our department is called 神经科 in Chinese.

Being on the front line can be challenging as patients may be having a hard time dealing with everything, but I always greet patients with a smile on my face.  I want to give them hope and remind them that they are not alone in this journey."
