To the editor:
May 6-12 is National Nurses Week and North Shore Medical Center would like to take a moment to recognize how much our outstanding nurses contribute to our organization. Whether it is at the bedside in one of our hospitals or in one of our many outpatient facilities or physician offices, our nurses are committed to providing high-quality compassionate care to our community.
Our nurses are truly at the forefront of both quality and innovation. Every day, nurses step forward, embracing new technologies, resolving emerging issues and accepting ever-changing roles in their profession. Their ongoing commitment to quality and patient safety is what moves health care forward. What often begins as a solution for one patient becomes an advancement that benefits countless others.
We honor and recognize our nurses for the invaluable role they play in patient care. These dedicated individuals make a meaningful difference in the lives of local residents every day. We are proud of our nurses’ standard of excellence in patient care, and value their commitment to caring for our community. During Nurses Week, and every day, we acknowledge and thank these talented professionals, encourage them to care for themselves, and extend our respect and gratitude for their extraordinary dedication.
