Riverside marking Nurses Week here

National Nurses Week is the perfect opportunity to thank and recognize the devoted, talented, and compassionate registered nursing staff that work at all Riverside Health Care Facilities, Inc. sites.
This annual tribute to nurses coincides with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern-day nursing.

Our nurses not only make a difference on a personal level with individual patients and families, but are instrumental in advancing quality, safety, and the overall effectiveness of our programs and services.
As with all hospital and long-term care home staff, our nurses support Riverside’s vision—to provide exceptional and compassionate health care, inspired by the people we serve, valued by our communities.
Nothing is more gratifying than the simple power of touch, a calming voice, a silent moment, or a kind word . . . all bringing peace, thoughtfulness, and healing to our patients.
These are our nurses; the highly-skilled health-care professionals who combine the art of caring with scientific knowledge and skills developed through their education and career.
Every day, even while under great demands, they step forward embracing change and new technologies while acting as leaders, coaches, and mentors for others.
Over the course of the week, Riverside will be hosting events at all of its sites, including a walk this Wednesday (May 14) at 4:15 p.m. in support of this year’s theme, “A Leading Force for Change.”
Everyone is welcome to join us at the waterfront entrance of La Verendrye General Hospital for our walk to Boston Pizza.
Come and help us celebrate!
On behalf of Riverside’s board of directors and the entire administrative team, we want to thank our nursing staff and all nurses in Rainy River District who deliver high-quality care while giving their time and talent to lead the way toward excellence in care.
