TORONTO, May 9, 2013 /CNW/ - This week is National Nursing Week and on
behalf of Ontario's doctors I want to take a moment to recognize nurses
for their hard work and dedication to patient care. On the frontlines,
nurses play a critical role in ensuring that patients across the
province receive the health care services they need and deserve.
As Ontario's health care system changes and evolves, it is imperative
that we all work together to ensure that we continue to meet the needs
of our patients. Nurses play a critical role across the spectrum of
health care in long-term care homes, hospitals, doctor's offices and in
the community and we are fortunate to be working alongside the best
nurses in the world.
I want to thank nurses for their important contribution. Ontario's
doctors and nurses will continue to work collaboratively to deliver
high quality services and provide timely access to every Ontarian
across the province. It is our hope that patients in Ontario will take
a moment to appreciate the work that nurses do not just during National
Nurse Appreciation Week but throughout the year.
