This approach is illustrated by the following parable:
An old man walking on the beach at dawn noticed a girl picking up a starfish and placing it in the sea. When asked why, the girl explained that the stranded starfish would die if left to lie in the morning sun.
“But there are millions of starfish on the beach,” said the old man.
The girl picked up another starfish and placed it in the waves.
Delivering qualtiy and compassionate care, one patient at a time.
