Today we celebrate international nurses day. Did you know 2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife in honour of Florence Nightingale’s 200 year anniversary.
Our MD Kim-Marie started her career as a nurse many years ago and became an RGN before she moved on 30+ years ago. She didn’t move away from the NHS completely as she continued in supplying staff in her new career. The NHS remains an integral part of her working life. International nurses day Kim-Marie believes is a great way of recognising the sacrifices and endeavours of all healthcare practitioners. This is especially true with the current COVID-19 outbreak.
Did you know that the 12th May is Florence’s 200th birthday. (Some of the staff joke that Kim-Marie knew her personally!). There is a museum that celebrates the life and work of Florence Nightingale which needs help. Why not take a little time and donate. Like all museums in the UK visitors are none existent. It would be a shame if the museum had to close. If you haven’t had the chance to visit the museums site please do.
Our NHS nurses are doing an incredible job on the front line fighting Covid-19.
To this day they are employing the nursing principles pioneered by Florence Nightingale of washing your hands and evidence based healthcare. In summary, they constantly put their patients first to save lives and they should be honoured for their sacrifice and effort. We should all ensure we do what we can to help them and keep COVID-19 at bay.
So, it’s no surprise that the simple steps we can take can have such an impact. All nurses follow these simple regimes and we can do too.
Finally all at uComply fully support all healthcare workers and hope that they stay safe.
