On May 14, Green Hill celebrated National Nurses Week with special luncheons held each day for the nursing staff and their associates. Gifts were distributed and tributes shared to recognize the nursing staff’s contribution to Green Hill, and the lives and health of its residents.
“The nursing staff is an integral part of the Green Hill family providing much more than excellence in health care to our residents,” said Toni Lynn Davis. “Our nursing staff are truly family, and bring a lot of comfort and joy to residents, and their families”.
National Nurses Week was held across the country May 6 through May 12 to recognize the contributions nurses make to our society and to our lives. The original National Nurses Day was founded on May 12, 1965 to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, recognized by many as the founder of modern nursing. As of 2003 the date was changed to the Wednesday in the middle of National Nurses Week.
