Saint Kitts and Nevis: The opposition – SKNLP party – St Kitts and Nevis labour party wished the nurses as the world celebrates International Nurse Day.
Dr Denzil L Douglas- leader of SKNLP- stated, “Nurses around the world have been a mighty force in leading the war against Covid-19. Without their sturdy, commitment, dedicated, caring, and life-risking ethics, our international healthcare infrastructure would have fallen apart.”
He added, “As a medical doctor,
I am thankful that here in our beloved Federation, nurses have committed themselves to take care of patients at home, in the hospitals, at our clinics, and in the wider community with limited resources and under tough conditions. A few nurses have lost their lives in the process. We pause to say how thankful we are for the incredible sacrifices made.”
“Our gratitude shows up in numerous testimonies. Some of us will confess that Nurses have brought back countless patients from the brink of death. Others will say that Nurses have helped our family members face the inevitable, and still, others will declare that Nurses have educated us, to embrace wellness practices through the wisdom of balancing a healthy diet, rest, and exercise,”- Dr Douglas asserted.
“The theme for this year’s International Nursing Day is – A Voice to Lead- A Vision for Future Healthcare. It captures the spirit and core values of nursing.”
He further concluded, “In St. Kitts and Nevis,
our Nurses are leading the future of healthcare by showing up every night and day, giving of their diverse talents in the most skillful manner, re-skilling themselves with the use of new technologies, and working with doctors and other healthcare providers, to ease the pain, and facilitate the healing of our sick and suffering.”
“To every Nurse who taught us, never to surrender our faith or peace of mind to diseases, we salute you. This is YOUR day! We shower you with respect and we give each of you our highest blessings and longest praise!.”
