May 7: Nurses' Week
What a great week at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center – Nurses' Week! Nurses are clearly the heart and soul of this amazing institution. Throughout my career, nurses have taught me a simple concept: The secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient.
They do this daily and selflessly. Moreover, nurses have always taught me the value of teamwork. If all health care professionals could practice like nurses – relying on each other, communicating and coordinating – imagine how much our outcomes could improve.
Our nurses are what makes Banner Good Samaritan a Place of Possibilities. Our prestigious Magnet Designation just validates what we already know, that this is a very special place cared for by very special nurses.
Thank you to each one of you. I look forward to continuing the journey of continual improvement with each and every one of our amazing nurses at Banner Good Sam.
