Banner Good Samaritan Salutes Nurses!
PHOENIX (May 4, 2012) In honor of Nurses Week (May 6-12), Banner Good Samaritan would like to thank all of our nurses for the incredible work they do everyday to provide excellent patient care.
Nurses are the cornerstone of the health care industry. Nurses:
- advocate for health promotion
- educate patients and the public on the prevention of illness and injury
- provide care and assist in cure
- participate in rehabilitation
- provide support
The nursing profession plays a critical role in improving patient outcomes, increasing access, coordinating care, and reducing health-care costs.
No other health care professional has such a broad and far-reaching role.
National Nurses Week is celebrated annually in May and includes National Nurses Day on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
Banner Good Samaritan is proud to recognize and truly appreciates the work all of our nurses do - each and every day.
