Atrius Health Celebrates National Nurses Week 2016

| Posted On May 12, 2016 | By:

National Nurses Week is May 6 – 12.

The 2016 theme is “Culture of safety, It starts with YOU,” and this theme is evident daily in the efforts of our nurses who engage our patients and their families in their care. The Atrius Health nurses are committed through their actions to deliver the safest, highest quality, and compassionate care to our patients and their families every day. We see this dedication in the comments from our patients describing how their nurse “genuinely cares for me,” “protects me,” “makes me feel safe” and “has made a difference.” We are very proud of our outstanding nurses who are valued and respected by their colleagues and patients.

On behalf of nursing and senior leadership, I would like to congratulate RNs Helen Donato, Sally Faggella, Mary Ann Frazier, Nancy Salonpuro, Jessica ZuHone and NP Janice Micale , who were honored in the annual Boston Globe “Salute to Nurses” for their outstanding care. The words used to describe these nurses captured the spirit of nursing at Atrius Health, “She embraces who I am;” “Her job is to keep people like me protected;” “She has an extraordinary capacity for empathy and compassion;” “I admire her sensitivity and resilience;” and “She is clinically adept.” We thank each of you for the difference you make each day in the lives of our patients.
