National Nurse Week, May 6-12

At Bastian & Perrott, Oswald Mortuary, we are proud to recognize nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6 – 12.  This week is set aside to recognize the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the vital roles nurses play in meeting the health care needs of the American people. 

While we respect and honor all nurses, we’d like to pay special tribute this year to those nurses providing end of life and palliative care in hospices, convalescent and senior living facilities.  Often, these dedicated professionals don’t receive the recognition and appreciation they deserve as they don’t work in hospitals or medical offices. 

End-of-life nursing encompasses many aspects of care: pain and symptom management, culturally sensitive practices, assisting patients and their families through the death and dying process, and ethical decision-making. In addition, nurses are patient advocates who actively listen, enhance the nurse-patient trust relationship and create a healing environment.

During National Nurses Week, we hope that you will join us in recognizing all nursing professionals who provide highly skilled, safe and quality care in a variety of settings, and who encounter increased challenges to their professional and ethical commitment to deliver essential health care, and encourage nursing students to continue their studies and embrace such a rewarding profession.

To all the nurses in our community and especially to those in hospice and palliative care, thank you for your dedication and service.

Abel Gonzales, Manager

Bastian & Perrott, Oswald Mortuary (FD#1198)
