Please join Front Range Hospice as we celebrate National Nurses Week, which is held every year May 6 through May 12, which is Florence Nightingales birthday. The purpose of National Nurses Week is to raise public awareness of the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the vital roles nurses play in meeting the health care needs of individuals and families in our communities.
Front Range Hospice nurses exemplify innovation, purpose and dedication. Even when Colorado weather presents blinding snow storms, torrential rain, hail, floods or whatever Mother nature has up her sleeve, our nurses insure that all of their patients are cared for and safe. It is this type of commitment to quality care and compassion for those in need that is both heartwarming and inspiring.
Being a hospice nurse is a very special calling. Using some of the most advanced technology available and with the highest clinical standards, hospice nurses provide a full spectrum of nursing care, combining critical thinking, assessment and teaching in a variety of settings across our region.
All of Front Range Hospice nurses have a passion for their work, constantly striving, learning and caring for anyone in need.
In honor of National Nurses Week, we would like to take a moment to honor Florence Nightingale, nurses everywhere and to especially recognize the contributions of the nurses at Front Range Hospice. Your passion and desire to help those in need is remarkable and inspiring. Thank you for giving a piece of yourself to every patient you care for.
In closing a quote from Florence Nightingale.
“It is often thought that medicine is the curative process. It is no such thing; medicine is the surgery of functions, as surgery proper is that of limbs and organs. Neither can do anything but remove obstructions; neither can cure; nature alone cures. Surgery removes the bullet out of the limb, which is an obstruction to cure, but nature heals the wound. So it is with medicine; the function of an organ becomes obstructed; medicine so far as we know, assists nature to remove the obstruction, but does nothing more. And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him.”
