If you want to use the term ‘backbone’ then nurses would be the backbone of the healthcare system. Generally, in most hospitals the primary caregivers are nurses, and they also are a part of correctly diagnosing patients. Not only that, they spend their days serving patients, improving their health. But many nurses also go above and beyond, and their holistic approach to healthcare provision contributes to us in significant ways when we find ourselves at our physical (or mental) worse.
Hug a nurse this week for the annual Nurses Week! Healthcare wouldn’t be healthcare without them.
