As part of our nursing team, we celebrated our Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) along with our Registered Nurses during National Nurses Week in May. We would like to take the time now to acknowledge and thank our CNAs during National Certified Nursing Assistants Week for the integral role they play in the care of our patients at Good Shepherd Penn Partners. Their contributions are many and are evident and recognized by the large number of BEE Award nominations received in their honor by patients, families and their peers every quarter.
Through a caring and compassionate approach, our CNAs form relationships with patients and families that fosters a trustworthy, safe environment to promote healing. Their efforts in supporting turning schedules to prevent pressure injuries and keeping our patients safe while performing 1:1 care are examples of how our Certified Nursing Assistants support our overall mission of advancing patients to meet their care goals in preparation for discharge.
Please take the time today to personally thank the Certified Nursing Assistants working with you for their amazing dedication and contribution to patient/family-centered care.
