A big thank you to all nurses

Posted by: on May 12, 2016 | No Comments

Today is International Nurses Day and I would like to express my deepest thanks to all nurses worldwide who have chosen this incredibly important job. I can only speak for the nurses that we work with in Diaverum, but their professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm impresses me every day. Only due to their care and attention can Diaverum patients worldwide live a fuller life despite having to undergo dialysis treatment three times per week. This special care and attention goes far beyond the medical treatment: it is the smile that welcomes the patients when entering the treatment room, the effort put into making the stay in the dialysis clinic as comfortable as possible and the commitment to improving the quality of life for their patients, for example by organising a revitalising vacation for them. Most nurses build lasting relationships and even friendships with our patients and they are just as excited as the patients themselves when they are, for example, chosen for a kidney transplant. In those moments this job is certainly rewarding, but very often it is very challenging and this earns my full and genuine respect. Thank you!
