Who is the true backbone of the American healthcare system? If you said physicians, you’re wrong. It’s nurses! They are also more of them, per a report from the American Medical Association there are ten nurses to every three physicians.
From providing comfort and care for those with chronic illnesses to advocating for better healthcare access and outcomes, nurses are essential in ensuring the quality of life. On National Nurses Day, May 12, TwelveStone Health Partners wishes to show appreciation for all they do.
Recognize the Impact of Nurses
Nurses do much more than deliver direct patient care. They also strive to promote improved health outcomes and provide comfort through emotional support. Nurses have a unique ability to connect with patients on a personal level building trust and creating positive relationships. Nurses possess an extraordinary capacity to form bonds with patients that go beyond what other healthcare professionals can achieve, enabling them to understand their requirements more profoundly.
In addition, nurses are essential members of multidisciplinary teams who collaborate with physicians, pharmacists, social workers, nutritionists, physical therapists, and others to coordinate comprehensive care plans for each patient’s needs. They work tirelessly behind the scenes advocating for improved access to resources like medication assistance programs or financial aid, which can make all the difference when it comes to managing chronic illnesses effectively.
Infusion Therapy Specialists
Nurses also play an essential role in helping people manage chronic illnesses such as multiple sclerosis or diabetes by providing life-enhancing infusion therapy services. And nurses and other licensed healthcare professionals play a vital part in delivering infusion therapies in both patients’ homes and free-standing infusion centers, depending on the medication. Our clinical professionals help ensure that infusions are safely administered so that patients receive the best care during this challenging process.
In both locations the TwelveStone nursing team offers compassionate care while ensuring safety protocols are always met making them an essential part of your healthcare team.
On May 12 and every day, we thank these dedicated professionals who go above and beyond every day.
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12
