Happy Nurses' Day

Recommended Posts

Turbocharged

In today's SUNDAY FOCUS of The Sunday Times, a full centre spread was devoted to Nursing. Rightfully so. S'PORE NEEDS MORE NURSES.

If anyone has been to the hospitals, as a patient, or, even as a visitor, one would realise the dedication of our nurses. The tender loving care they render to each and every one of the patients, the busy schedule, and now, the PPE they have to don, do not make life easier for them. We are grateful to have such committed professionals in our healthcare sector.

A high percentage of our nurses are work pass holders, and a source had recently restrictions on their export of nurses. It is not too late to train more of our local core.

Happy Nurses' Day! 

Philipkee, we have not forgotten you!

Happy Nurses Day.

Thanks for the loving care towards all the patients. It has been an extremely tough period in the past one and the half years, and no amount of word can ever describe the hardships you have went through, not to mention the fear and anxiety when dealing with COVID-19 patients.

Stay strong and healthy. [thumbsup]

Fun fact: Singapore is the only country to celebrate Nurses Day on 1 August. The other countries celebrate it on 12 May – the birthday of Florence Nightingale.

Healthcare in Singapore was generally weak up till 1885, with a distinct lack of nurses to support the work of doctors. A frantic call was issued for nurses, and the nuns from the local French Convent answered it. They commenced nursing at the General Hospital on 1 August 1885 – a date which has since spawned our own annual Nurses Day.

Agreed, nurses are what make the medical system work... too many hospitals becoming corporatize where only managers (doctors) get credit for work and everyone who actually does all the work is stuck in career endpoint hell

Happy Nurses' Day to all nurses, esp @Philipkee here.

Had worked with nurses some years back, and an aunt was a career nurse till retirement. All were very dedicated nurses.

When i had my surgery earlier this year, had felt the care of the few nurses who looked after me for that short period of time (I only stayed one night). Very appreciative of them.
