Emergency Nurses Week celebrated at HRHS

SoVaNow.com / October 10, 2012
Halifax Regional Health System is celebrating Emergency Nurses Week Oct. 7-13. This year’s theme, “Every Patient + Every Time = Making a Difference” reflects the dedication of emergency nurses in the United States and around the world.

Since 1989, the Emergency Nurses Association has celebrated the second Wednesday in October as Emergency Nurses Day, a day set aside to honor emergency nurses for their commitment to patient care. Starting in 2001, ENA expanded the celebration to devote an entire week to honoring emergency nurses, because one day is simply not enough to recognize all contributions made by emergency nurses.

“Thank you to all emergency nurses, especially Halifax Regional Hospital emergency nurses, for all of your hard work and dedication every day you walk through the doors of the hospital,” says Janelle Slabach, nurse manager for Halifax Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department. “Each one of you brings care, comfort, and compassion to patients and their loved ones.”
