To Our Great Nurses:
Just a note of grateful recognition and thanks to each of you on this Nurses’ Day. The words “World Class” are likely overused in this era of superlatives; however the phrase is well-deserved in describing the quality and commitment seen in PVMC’s nursing team, especially over this past year.
We all know that what truly separates the good from the great are the personal, nuanced components of our daily patient care routine. Our patients expect high quality, safe care. But to have that care delivered with compassion and individualized attention to detail…that’s where we beat the expectation. So it’s really no surprise that the work our nurses do is of the highest regard by our community.
Sometimes we forget the higher calling that drew us to our profession, especially during these times of such dramatic change. As we often focus our collective attention on the hard numbers (attempts to quantify just about every aspect of the healthcare delivery process), I’ll take this opportunity to admire our nurses’ work as a human, social, and emotional entity. The heart of nursing still entails two people sharing a healing experience in one way or another. PVMC’s nursing team demonstrates this simple truth each day and night, something for which we have developed a unique reputation all our own.
I take great pride in our nurses and offer a gracious “thank you” for all you do. You’re the best.
Happy Nurses’ Day,
