Last summer, Patti Jurkus, director of Bedford Memorial Hospital, did something she would never normally do, and ended up with a trip to Australia as a result.
Jurkus was working late back in August. It was very late, almost 11 p.m when she went on Facebook to look at pictures of her grandchildren. An Oprah Winfrey fan icon popped up and she clicked on it. It asked her what Oprah Winfrey show had impacted her the most. Jurkus replied, listing the show and writing about how it affected her life.
