Coinciding with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, International Nurses Day, held on Thursday 12th May, is a day to celebrate nurses and care staff around the world. Residents and staff at Hugh Myddelton House care home in Southgate, were happy to get involved by hosting a much deserved presentation for our amazing team.
In 2022, the International Council of Nurses is seeking to focus on the need to protect, support and invest in the nursing profession to strengthen health systems around the world. International Nurses’ Day is a day to give thanks for the dedication of care givers everywhere, who go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver extraordinary care and support.
Ramona Stanciu, General Manager at the home, said: “At Hugh Myddelton, our nurses and staff are hard-working, dedicated, and passionate about caring for others, and that compassion and commitment has shone through even more over the past year. They continue to work tirelessly, and I’m proud of the professionalism and duty of care they uphold. All their efforts are focused on delivering the best possible care for our residents, so it’s nice to take this time to show our appreciation in return. It is also lovely to celebrate our residents who were nurses themselves and thank them for all the hard work they did during their careers.”
Cristina, nurse at the home, said: “I have always wanted to be nurse from a young age and think it’s a great job for young people to consider. You make such a positive effect on other lives, You get to meet amazing people, find out about their amazing life stories and it’s an honour support them.”
