Pune: Every year, International Nurses Day focuses attention on the diverse ways India’s fourteen lakh nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals. From bedside nursing in hospitals and long-term care facilities to the halls of research institutions, the depth and breadth of the nursing profession is meeting the expanding health care needs of Indian society. Taking this thread forward, Ruby Hall Clinic celebrated International Nurses Day today to honour the relentless dedication and passion of the twelve hundred nurses at the hospital.
Traditionally celebrated to commemorate the birth Anniversary of Florence Nightingale – a symbol of pioneering nursing, International Nurses Day salutes the noble profession of nursing globally. At Ruby Hall Clinic, the ceremony saw a cultural programme along with the felicitation of its’ longest serving nurses. Nursing superintendents Mrs. Elizabeth Simon, Mrs. Ammini Varghese and Mrs. Rose Seymour who have been associated with the hospital since 1969, 1970 and 1990 respectively were lauded for their service. Three nurses from the hospital who were honoured at the TNAI Pune City Branch and highest ranked TGINE students also won accolades.
Organised at the Kamal Nayan Bajaj Cancer Centre, the event provided a great opportunity for the hospital to celebrate the fantastic work of nurses at not just Ruby Hall Clinic but also the Wanowarie and upcoming Hinjewadi branches. Celebrating this day reminded staff, volunteers, patients and the public that nurses work hard and are committed to each and every one of their patients. Resonating with the global theme of International Nurses Week 2016 – Culture of Safety: It Starts With You, chief guest and Director of the Laboratory and NABH Coordinator, Dr. Nita Munshi addressed the gathering.
“Every hospital would come to a virtual standstill without nurses. They provide care and comfort to patients and their families, they advocate for their patients, and the entire health care system depends on them. Nurses are highly knowledgeable, skilled professionals, and are the heart and soul of health care. Every decision nurses make in their practice can make a significant difference in the efficiency and effectiveness of the entire system. And it is this resilience of our nurses that has created a true culture of safety for our patients and their families”, she said.
Mr. Bomi Bhote, CEO, Ruby Hall Clinic added, “With knowledge, courage, vision and commitment nurses are well placed to take a lead role in improving the health of our communities. The training in terms of quality education, facilities such as comfortable hostels in the vicinity and hands-on experience we provide, grooms nurses into innovative professionals with a wealth of skills and knowledge. At Ruby Hall Clinic, our nurses strive to make the intolerable, tolerable and to ensure that wherever possible people are restored to health and wellbeing as quickly as possible. In all settings, nurses partner with people to ensure their safety, comfort and dignity through all health challenges. Nurses truly are unsung heroes. We are much more grateful than words could ever express for the care provided by the nurses at the hospital.”
