OUR NURSES ARE KEY TO SUPERIOR PATIENT CARE
Our nurses are remarkable. They are the heart of healthcare—known and appreciated for their amazing dedication, compassion, and skill. Nurses have a gift to serve and care for others.Across the entire patient experience, and wherever there is someone in need of care, nurses work tirelessly to identify and protect the needs of the individual.
Our nurses are playing a vital role, devoting their professional lives to caring for our communities and families, during this Covid-19 health crisis.
Restrictions at Wellington Regional Medical Center kept Zach Threlkeld from being present in the operating room when his wife Amanda was delivering their son via Caesarean section, when nurse anesthetist Robert Stroud, CRNA, suggested connecting him from the birthing suite through FaceTime. “I was able to give Amanda some encouragement through the phone and Mr. Stroud was able to point the phone at Amanda where I could speak with her,” Zach said. “We thought it was extraordinary that he would understand our feelings and emotions and be sympathetic.”
Kathy B., RN has worked in healthcare for more than four decades, in critical and acute care, oncology, pediatrics, emergency medicine and now psychiatric nursing. The words she sets her professional life by come from a surprising source, John Lennon: “There are no problems, only solutions.”
Marc Kagan is a retired flight nurse for the U.S. Air Force Reserve who now serves as a cardiac catheterization lab nurse at Manatee Memorial Hospital. When he found out that a patient who had succumbed to the virus was a fellow veteran, his response was immediate and heartfelt. “I decided to give him a salute,” Kagan said.
Sometimes, Palmdale Regional Medical Center nurse Heather LeBlanc says, being a good nurse resembles being one of her all-time favorite TV characters. “I used to love 'MacGyver.' As a kid I looked up to him. And you really do have to ‘MacGyver’ situations, you have to look outside the box. You have to be your patient’s advocate in whatever fashion presents itself.”
