Director Says Nurses Are Vitally Important To The Hospital



Nurses Week this year is celebrated from the 11th -18th May 2019 under the Theme “Nurses Rekindling Our Passion and Purpose for Healthcare Delivery.”

I would like to say that one of the best parts of my job is hearing kind words and receiving notes of praise about our staff from patients and their loved ones – I believe that is one of the clearest affirmations of the work being done by the MSJMC team. Very often the encouragement and commendations I get are about our nursing staff – And I wish to thank you for that.


The nursing profession is truly a gift. Our patients often come to us vulnerable and afraid, with more questions than answers. As nurses, it’s our role to be their advocate, confidant, and interpreter. It’s an honor that they trust us and it’s a privilege to care for them in their time of need.


Caring for people can be exhilarating and inspiring, but it can also be exhausting – An in today’s hectic, busy environment, we occasionally take for granted the many sacrifices of our valued nurses. The truth is your unwavering commitment to our patients and their care is what enables our hospital to thrive. So I want to offer my deepest thanks to all of you, for the amazing work you do every day to provide remarkable care to the communities we serve.


You are vitally important to MSJMC’s mission. Know that we would not be whole without the talent and special gifts you bring to our organization. You matter. The mission you’re a part of matters. I’m honored to serve with you and speak for myself and the entire MSJMC team when I say that we are truly grateful for each and every one of you.


Happy Nurses Week!

  1. Interesting headline. Jacqueline Jno-Baptiste should also note that BASIC HUMAN COMPASSION and DIGNITY are also vital for nurses to do their jobs. Especially the ones who man the desk in the waiting area. Don’t act like you are doing the patients a favor. You are there to SERVE with COMPASSION.

    “A nurse must be drawn to caring for the sick and injured. This includes having EMPATHY for the pain and suffering of patients, as well as a strong desire to make the hospital experience as positive as possible. “
