National Nursing Assistants Week June 13-23: Nursing Assistants at the Heart of Caring

HHQI would like to thank all the nursing assistants for the care and compassion they give from their hearts to their patients each and every day!  The assistants really have their fingers on the pulse of the patients and their families sometimes more than the other members of the interdisciplinary teams because you spend time with the patients and families routinely, where as visits from the rest of the team may not be as frequent.    We all know so many personal stories of nursing assistants going the extra mile for the patient and family, even on their own time.  We want to know you are a valuable part of the home health team and are appreciated by all.

WordCloud_forNursingAssistantWeekIn our busy day-to-day working environment, how often do we get to stop and thank the assistants for the great work they do each and every day?  Take time this week to reach out to the nursing assistants that are part of your team (and others) and then do it often!!

  1. I whole heartedly agree. Sometimes it’s all too easy to forget about the support staff in a healthcare environment. Without them, we would be in a pretty sorry state of affairs!
