PMH recognizes Emergency Nurses

Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is recognizing Emergency Nurses Week, October 6 – 12.

Emergency Nurses Day® is Wednesday, October 9. This year’s Emergency Nurses Week theme focuses on how powerful emergency nurses are. They have the capability to provide safe practice and care in difficult situations while remaining confident, strong and empowering their colleagues.

“We are so grateful for the amazing nurses we have on staff and the lives that they save,” said Michelle Deeds, Director of Nursing.

PMH’s emergency department sees 400-to-500 patients each month and is critically important to the health of our community and visitors.

Since 1989, the Emergency Nurses Association has recognized the second Wednesday in October as Emergency Nurses Day, a day honoring emergency nurses for their commitment to patient care. In 2001, ENA expanded the celebration to devote an entire week to honoring emergency nurses, because one day is simply not enough to recognize all contributions made by emergency nurses.
