Several hospitals in the city organised events to thank nurses and their contribution to healthcare sector on ‘World Nurses Day’ on Thursday.

While a few hospitals felicitated the nurses, others organised entertainment programmes for them.

This year’s theme at Fortis Hospital was ‘Nursing Care Bundle’ and an array of fun-filled activities like collage competition, essay writing, role playing, art competition, craft-making, etc were conducted. ‘Tug of war,’ ‘make or break,’ ‘hair-styling’ and
‘antakshari’ were also organised.

Nurses also had a fashion pageant where they walked down the ramp.
Several awards were also presented to them.

A felicitation programme was organised at People Tree Hospitals.

Recognition of service

Hospital CEO Dr Chandrashekar Chikkamuniyappa said, “We are very proud of our nurses who actually bring care to cure. They are the ones who bring hospitality to hospital and it is important to recognise their services as frontline caregivers.”

Nurses presented a fun-filled dance to create awareness among patients and medical fraternity on techniques of handwash. The nurses had choreographed the song and dance event.

Hemavathi, chief, Government Nursing School, said, “A nurse heals without prescription. Their efforts need to be recognised at least one day, if not every day.”

At Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), doctors at the hospital thanked the nurses.

Rajya Vokkaligara Sangha president Dr Appaji Gowda said, “Nurses hail from various backgrounds and play an essential role in delivering healthcare across our communities and the theme for the ‘International Nurses’ Day’ was - “Nurses: A Force for Change: Improving health systems’ resilience.”
