330 National Skilled Nursing Week
National Skilled Nursing Care Week
Whereas, Established by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) in 1967 and always beginning on Mother’s Day, National Skilled Nursing Care Week, formerly known as National Nursing Home Week, provides an opportunity to recognize the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.
Whereas, Nurses are a key component of the health-care system and have an important role to play in people’s lives by nature of their keen judgement, compassion and clinical experience; and
Whereas, nurses are trusted health professionals and committed to preserving and protecting our public health-care system; and
Whereas, nurses advocate on behalf of their patients for an environment that promotes safe patient care, dignity and respect; and
Whereas, nurses also have the right to work in an environment that promotes safety, respect, and dignity for the nurse; and
Now therefore be it resolved, that we, the Commissioners of Warren County, hereby proclaim the week of May 12-18, 2019 as National Skilled Nursing Care Week in Warren County.
And be it further resolved, urge all citizens to join in celebration and recognition of nurses and their unique ability to have a positive impact on the lives of those in their care.
ADOPTED, this 8th day of May 2019.
