PCH celebrates nurse's week

Monday, May 10, 2010

GREENCASTLE -- National Nurse's Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurse's Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

Health care is a top national priority and is likely to remain one for the foreseeable future. Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants and unit clerks provide around the clock bedside care that is at the heart of health care in the United States and at Putnam County Hospital.

"Our nurses are the backbone of our healthcare system," said Joni Perkins, RN and director of nursing at PCH.

PCH will celebrate its local nurses this week. The nursing staff will be honored with a celebration luncheon Wednesday.

Seven nurses will be acknowledged at the luncheon with certificates of recognition from the Indianapolis Star's Salute to Nurses awards program. The nurses were nominated by a local physician for their selfless service and dedication to the community they serve.
