They are the people who open their hearts—and bare their souls— by doing things like:
And this year with the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to recognize—and thank— nurses for their selflessness, strength and dedication to helping and healing. Nurses are true heroes as they continue to courageously and selflessly serve on the frontlines during these very uncertain times.
And while the current pandemic events have brought global attention to the perils of frontline nursing, those dangers are something that the individuals who have spent their careers there know very well. They see firsthand the impacts of a lack of access to prompt care, disparities in the healthcare system, and the sometimes-tragic results of having to wait for treatment.

That is why year after year, they are unequivocally considered one of the most respected professions.

One thing that is consistent—regardless of job function, setting or location—is standing up for what is right and just.
At TeleTracking, we are honored to have many dedicated, devoted nurses on our team—and to be able to work with so many wonderful nurses at our client sites. We’ve featured a few of the clinicians at TeleTracking recently on the blog and will be featuring many more in the Spring issue of Patient Flow Quarterly.
Happy Nurses Week!
