INTERNATIONAL Nurses Day is being hailed as a time to celebrate kindness and care at Mercy Place Mandurah as both staff and residents take time to thank the 15 nurses who care for seniors at the home.
The team of registered and enrolled nurses range in age from 21 to 61 and have countless decades of nursing experience between them, making residents at the not-for-profit home in particularly safe hands.
And in a turn of event on the day itself – celebrated around the world on May 12, the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale – residents plan to repay the care they receive year-around by recognising the team of nurses during a special lunchtime celebration.
Service manager Christina Venables said Mercy Health was fortunate to have a wonderful team of dedicated and professional nurses
“We think Florence Nightingale’s birthday is the perfect time to acknowledge our 15 nurses and thank them for their dedication and levels of care that are second to none,’’ she said.
