TORONTO, May 8 /CNW/ - It is National Nursing Week (May 9-15), and on
behalf of all of Ontario's doctors I would like to take a moment to
recognize nurses for their hard work and dedication to patients and the
health care system. Working on the frontlines, nurses have and will
continue to play a critical role in ensuring that patients across the
province receive the health care services they need and deserve.
Ontario's health care system continues to evolve at a rapid pace. All
health care professionals are faced with many challenges on a
day-to-day basis which is why it is important that we work together so
that we can better serve our patients. Working across the spectrum of
health care in long-term care homes, hospitals and doctor's offices to
name a few, we are fortunate to be working alongside Ontario's nurses.
By working collaboratively, we can 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.
