This week, Wingate is proud to be celebrating National Nurses Week! Each year, National Nurses Week is observed between May 6th and May 12th, ending on Florence Nightingale’s birthday, the founder of modern nursing. All of us at Wingate are extremely honored to work alongside the dedicated nurses at our skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities. They care for our residents each day, and we’re thrilled to celebrate their hard work!
National Nurses Week celebrates the role nurses play in delivering the highest level of quality care to patients. In addition to the wonderful Wingate nursing staff that we recognize this week, we thank all the nurses who are part of our larger Wingate community.
This year, the 2015 National Nurses Week theme is “Ethical Practice. Quality Care.” This sentiment rings particularly true at Wingate, where our residents’ care is at the forefront of everything we do. We are committed to providing care that improves and enhances the lives of our residents, delivered by the best nurses in the business. And we know that at the core of this work is trust in our care and our staff. Thank you to our nurses who help us fulfill this promise.
There are celebrations and parties happening throughout the week at all 21 Wingate locations to honor our staff and we’re excited to share snapshots of those events, so keep an eye out for our posts on Twitter and Facebook.
Happy National Nurses Week and a heartfelt thank you to all the wonderful Wingate nurses!
