Today is the start of National Nursing Week 2022 (May 9 to 15)! This year’s theme is We Answer the Call, which was developed by the Canadian Nurses Association to showcase the many roles that nurses play in a patient’s health care journey.
From compassionately caring for our patients in the emergency departments, critical care, medicine and COVID units, and every other clinical area across the hospitals, to staffing our assessment centres and vaccine clinics and much more, SHN nurses continued to answer the call.
We Answer the Call
For the third year in this pandemic, SHN nurses have demonstrated commendable flexibility and leadership across all of our programs and specialties, including: Blood Services, Cardiology, Clinical Informatics, Critical Care, Emergency Services, Infection Prevention and Control, Medical Assistance in Dying, Medicine, Mental Health, Nephrology, Oncology, Palliative Care, Professional Practice, Seniors’ Care, Surgery, Quality and Safety, Wound Care, Women’s and Children’s, Workplace Health and Safety, Human Resources, and Telemedicine. SHN salutes and applauds our nursing team!
