Keeping the nurses happy - gifts/goodies anybody?

With my surgery the day before Thanksgiving (and hopes for an overnight stay), I figure I may have some nurses who'd rather be spending that day with family instead of taking care of me. I was wondering about bringing a basket or jar of treats for them? Thinking of individually wrapped chocolates or something? Has anyone done anything like this, and was it received well? I figured I'd keep it in my room with me (and hope my room-mate didn't swipe them, lol). Any ideas of things that would be more appreciated than chocolate?

Although your nurses will appreciate your treats and chocolate is always good but dont feel obligated, remember those nurses are going to be there whether you are there or not.

A heartfelt "thank you", and a little pleasant conversation when they visit your room. Many times those who work holidays at a hospital do it because they want to -- it pays well, and they feel for patients who have to be there on those occasions when they'd rather be with family (generally hospitals try to discharge patients who don't need to be in the hospital on major holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, so often those who are still there are the more serious cases).

My wife was a labor nurse for a long time. Write a thank you note and copy their boss. If you want to send food, send something to the station, most hospitals don't allow employees to accept individual gifts.
