National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. This year, on May 9thand 10th, Thorne Crest Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) delivered gift bags to the homes of the nursing staff to show their appreciation for the hard work they do.
The nursing staff was taken by surprised as they opened their doors to find gift bags full of their favorite treats. Linette Kleinschrodt, a Throne Crest RN said, “What a sweet thing for them to do. It made my weekend!” RN Jennifer Boots commented, “I was absolutely stunned. It brought a tear to my eye!”
Thorne Crest CNA Kayla Lee stated, “the nurses deserve to be recognized for all of the hard work they do for everyone at Thorne Crest especially during these hard times. So we wanted to make sure that they felt appreciated individually during the week that is dedicated to them.” CNA Lilia Almazan, expressed similar sentiments, “sometimes during a stressful time with so much going on, having to pick up extra shifts and extra work, it’s nice to feel appreciated. It makes my heart so happy to make someone else’s day by doing a kind gesture. It made me so happy that they all loved it!”
Thanks again to all the nurses for everything you do!
