National Nurses Week: Why We Celebrate
We celebrate nurses this week to show our appreciation for their care and sacrifice over the years. These essential workers prioritize patients’ needs, ensuring that their patients are comfortable and happy. We are grateful for our team of nurses at Bonita Springs Healthcare Services and know that they contribute to our success in providing medical services to all those in need.
5 Reasons Why We Celebrate Nurses During National Nurses Week
Nurses should be celebrated year-round for the selfless work that they provide each day. Here are some of the many reasons that we want to honor our nurses:
- Medical Expertise: Nurses show their experience every day as they report back about each patient’s condition. They get the job done, no matter how difficult or laborious the day’s work has been. Nurses recognize signs in patients that others may overlook.
- Care and Understanding: A nurse not only brings medical expertise to the table, but they also offer comfort to the patient. When a patient is lost or disoriented, a nurse guides them to feel safe and secure.
- Listening Ear: A nurse attends to the patient, often taking note of something that may lead to a medical complication in the future. A nurse offers a smile and a hand to hold if the patient feels isolated and alone.
- The Frontline of Recognizing Concerns: Nurses spend a lot of time with their patients, learning about their daily routine and abilities. Nurses are the first to recognize when a patient starts to decline. They are on high alert to step into a plan of action for resolving a patient complication.
- Dedicated Service: Nurses persevere through emergencies, pandemics, and endless hours on their feet. They are always on the go, maximizing each shift. Nurses are dedicated to their job and are honored to serve their patients every day. A nurse is not an ordinary job – it is a dedicated service to those in need.
We count on our nurses to represent excellent service above and beyond a job description. We applaud nurses everywhere for their tremendous sense of compassion and work ethic. Nurses are always at the patient’s side through the ups and downs.
Our team at Bonita Springs Healthcare Services is honored to have top-quality nurses who are attentive and sharp. Know that your loved one is in the best of hands with our nursing staff.
