The nurses are being celebrated for their dedication and skills the first week of November.
Medical-surgical nurses focus every day on caring compassionately for patients and families so the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) has designated a week to shift that focus to the nurses themselves.
Mammoth Hospital supports the national celebration of medical-surgical nurses during Medical-Surgical Nurses Week, Nov. 1 to 7.
Medical-surgical make a difference by building the profession of nursing and the medical-surgical nursing specialty, mentoring and nurturing each other, advocating for patients and families, serving their communities through care and education, and improving patient care.
The week is also meant to raise awareness of the medical-surgical nursing specialty among other nurses. One of the most diverse nursing specialties practiced today, medical-surgical nurses care for adult patients in a broad range of settings, applying their expert knowledge to all body systems and disease processes.
Mammoth Hospital would like to recognize the following medical-surgical nurses: Andrea G. Van Loon, Brittany Jolstead, Diana Bergstrom, Dori Leyen, Erica Wells, Jessica Day, Karrie Anderson, Kim Calvin, Lenka Rahmeyer, Lisa Marusicz, Omar Musa, Sandra Horna, Susan Wright, Terri Eckert, and Tina Allec.
