“Caring and love are synonymous. Inquiring about caring touches the heart and translates through the soul, the “speaking together” between the one caring and the one cared for, the shifting of consciousness from a focus on “they” or “I” to a compassionate “we.””

– Dr. Marilyn “Dee” Ray

Ray conducted one of the first research studies to illuminate the meaning, generate categories, and discover substantive and formal theories of caring in the hospital culture.
