It’s National Nurse Appreciation Week and Sunways is thrilled to make a huge shout to all the nurses who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe and well. This week allows us to thank the nurses in our lives, and to recognize the nursing community as a whole. This year marks the 202nd celebration of the nursing profession, and the theme is “Nurses Make a Difference”. This theme acknowledges the rapidly changing roles nurses have taken on in the past few years, especially working on the front lines of the COVID19 pandemic. Our society has asked nurses to make tremendous sacrifices to help those in need. One positive takeaway from the pandemic is our understanding of the necessity of these skilled professionals.
Nurses drive patient safety and healing. They spend more time with their patients than any other healthcare professional. Nurses are responsible for keeping up-to-date medical records, administering medications, and talking patients through treatment plans. Doctors are often rushed, and nurses are tremendous advocates for their patients and families. For all of these reasons, and many more, we need to help nurses remain emotionally engaged in their work!
These gestures are inexpensive and remind nurses how valuable they are. Please consider making a nurse’s day this week! Boosting morale among nurses can even lead to a better environment for healing, and ultimately a healthier and happier society as a whole. To all the nurses out there, we are so thankful for all that you do! YOU ROCK!
