On Friday May 8, Bethany Village celebrated the dedication, hard work and compassion of its nurses through an appreciation event. It is only through our nurses that our Faithful Caring tenets are carried out each and every day for our residents.
“It takes a lot of compassion, knowledge and patience to be a nurse in Long Term Care and Bethany has the best of the Best!” exclaims Chris Soergel, Director of Nursing Services.
Florence Nightingale had this to say about nursing: “Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, It requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter’s or sculptor’s work; for what is the having to do with a dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God’s spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts.”
