As we get ready for the holidays and for the joy of being with our friends and family, we are reminded of the very crucial role that nurses play in our lives.
From the nervous mother trying to calm her baby in the middle of the night, to the elderly patient worried about his heart condition, we all know that health is a gift. Nurses work to give us this gift every day – even when we don’t know ourselves how much we need it.
In a recent research using caller survey, we found that almost 10% of the patients thinking that they were “okay to stay home” when they called a nurse were actually having an emergency situation and in need to go to the emergency room. On a more personal note, my own father could have been with us today had he called a nurse about his unusual pain.
So in this holiday season, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the men and woman who have dedicated their lives to saving our health and helping others.
