Medical-surgical nurses focus every day on caring compassionately for patients and families. The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) has designated a special week to shift that focus to the nurses themselves. Grand Strand Medical Center will participate in a national celebration of medical-surgical nurses during Medical-Surgical Nurses Week, Nov. 1-7.
These nurses are being celebrated for their dedication, skills and heroism.
“This is an ideal time to recognize the hard work of our medical-surgical nurses who provide expert care to our patients at Grand Strand Medical Center,” said Tiffany Keys, chief nursing officer. “Our nurses strive to continually improve patient care and support their families during recovery.”
Medical-surgical nurses possess specialized skills and knowledge of the entire spectrum of nursing care. They make a difference by building the profession of nursing and the medical-surgical nursing specialty, mentoring and nurturing each other, advocating for patients and families, serving their communities through care and education, and improving patient care.
We would like to thank all our nurses on units 1 East, 2 East, 2 North and 3 East for their dedication, care and support for our patients and their families. We appreciate all you do. You truly make a difference.
