Home Helpers would like to recognize all of the hard-working, dedicated nurses who make an impact on patients' lives every day. Take a minute to thank a nurse you know for all that they’ve done.
National Nurses Week is celebrated each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Nightingale is most remembered as a pioneer of nursing and a reformer of hospital sanitation methods.
It was a game we all played as a child
Then some of us made it a dream worthwhile
More to learn, not as much time to share
Because in our hearts we really cared
We have worked the late night hours
While others slept away
Handled a doctor's many moods
Then found time to pray
Critical moments that remain as memories
Some sad - then some are good
Then there are the tragedies
That will never be understood
We see a newborn baby smile
As we watch another slip away
And that completes the circle
The price for life's that paid
Sometimes not appreciated
When just a hug will do
We are proud of our profession
A gift from me to you –Paul Nickerson
