A part of the Matrix Continued Medical Education program rolled out by the hospital, the talk follows the international theme set by the International Nursing Council for the day; Positive practice environments: Quality workplaces = quality patient care. Dr Suresh Menon, specialist physician at Jebel Ali Hospital will deliver the talk.
In recognition of the tireless services provided by these nurses, Jebel Ali Hospital will also give out appreciation certificates and gifts. All nursing staff members from other hospitals and private organizations have been invited to attend. Stellar contributions will be felicitated at a special awards ceremony which will follow the talk.
“Nurses are a critical component of the health care delivery model. Nursing is a challenging and a highly responsible role which can be physically and mentally exhausting but also extremely rewarding. We greatly appreciate our nurses because they have dedicated their lives to all those who seek their care, and this gathering will be our expression of gratitude for their invaluable contribution,” said Mr. Advet Bhambhani, Chief Executive Officer of Jebel Ali Hospital.
‘Globally, the nursing sector has witnessed a tremendous downsizing, which means that fewer number of hands are doing more work. This dedication requires tremendous morale boost. Through this gathering we wish to pay a tribute to all the hours hard labour that they have put in.” he added
Fuelled by a larger share of aging population and an enhanced lifespan even for those with debilitating diseases on account of advances in medical expertise, the recent years have witnessed an increased demand for these practitioners. International Nurses Day celebrates the contribution and commitment of these untiring care providers. The day coincides with the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, who is widely considered to be the mother of the modern nursing.
