This annual celebration happens on May 12th, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. Known as “The Lady with the Lamp,” she was a British nurse, social reformer and statistician best known as the founder of modern nursing. This is due to her work during the Crimean War bringing in new sanitation measures which helped prevent unnecessary deaths. Here at PrimeLife, we have some of the best Nurse Managers, Clinical Leads, Nurses, Nurse Associates, Nurse Practitioners and Student Nurses working within Prime Life Nursing & Residential Homes. These roles are very complex, and it takes a tremendous amount of skill, caring and knowledge. They have wonderful relationships with our residents and ensure that each one in their care is looked after to the highest possible standard. They are multi-skilled and highly professional, yet not always championed the same way as the NHS.
All of our nurses are fantastic and we appreciate each and every one of them for the incredible work they do. We are sorry that we cannot mention every person by name but we do have a few special shout outs to make for nurse that have recently stood out to us. We would like to give a special mention to Sanjidah Akthar, who currently works at Barons Park. She is calm, approachable, and very professional, seeking out as much knowledge as possible to improve her skills to provide the best care possible for our Residents. Sanjidah is relatively new to nursing but is showing us all what passionate clinical care looks like. Thank you, Sanjidah. We would also like to give a big shout out to Claire Street from Barons Park, Hannah Foster from Seacroft, Heather Farrow and Abigail Cook from Lowfield for their continued hard work, dedication and for going above and beyond your duties to support Prime Life Residents. All our nurses do an outstanding job, so please use International Nurses Day to walk tall and shout from the rooftops how brilliant Social Care nurses are! Thank you to all our nurses for today and every day. We salute you!
