Honoring our nurses

Readers write

National Nurses week is this week, ending on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who founded nursing as a modern profession.

I would like to take the opportunity this week during National Nurses Week, to honor the many talented and compassionate nurses who serve the patients and residents of Golden LivingCenter- Oneonta. Many of our residents consider the nursing staff part of their family. These are the people that take care of their daily needs, listen when times are hard, and provide a lasting friendship.

Our nurses, and nurses throughout our community, make a difference every day not only through the medical care they provide, but also through the hands they have held and the hugs they have given. At Golden LivingCenter-Oneonta, we are truly appreciative of our nurses’ uncompromising commitment to providing quality care for our patients, their families, and our staff.

Please join me in recognizing and thanking our community’s nurses for all that they do.
