As Nurses week begins, I wanted to highlight the importance of this respected profession that I take so much pride in. Nurses save lives, every shift. Without our critical thinking and detective skills – you might not make it out of the hospital.
Thank a Nurse
We give you all your medications, we direct and plan your care. We are the eyes and ears of the Doctor. We are by your side when you come in not breathing, go into cardiac arrest, or have life threatening infections – then…. with our own two hands – we bring you back to a healthier state -out of that dark place. We shake your hand after we give you discharge papers and see you safety out the door. It’s a beautiful thing.
