Health News :: Every Patient + Every Time = VGH Nurses Making a Difference
Emergency nurses make a difference each day in peoples’ lives, both within and beyond the traditional boundaries of the hospital emergency department. Working in areas such as critical care, research, technology, flight and ground transport and injury prevention, emergency nurses combine state-of-the-art skills with heartfelt compassion for those they serve. This year, the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) is celebrating Emergency Nurses Week October 7-13. Emergency Nurses Day® is Wednesday, October 10. This year’s theme, “Every Patient + Every Time = Making a Difference” reflects the dedication of emergency nurses in the United States and around the world.
A reception in honor of the Virginia Gay Hospital nursing staff will be held on October 10, 2012 in the cafeteria board room from 1-2 pm. Please take a moment to stop and thank the staff for their compassionate care and dedicated service to the community.
Since 1989, the Emergency Nurses Association has celebrated the second Wednesday in October as Emergency Nurses Day, a day set aside to honor emergency nurses for their commitment to patient care. Starting in 2001, ENA expanded the celebration to devote an entire week to honoring emergency nurses, because one day is simply not enough to recognize all contributions made by emergency nurses.

ENA is the only professional nursing association dedicated to defining the future
