“On behalf of the people and Government of St. Maarten I would like to say thank you for your care”
The Prime Minister of St. Maarten the Honorable Sarah Wescot-Williams congratulated all nurses and health care professionals for international Nurses Week celebrated from the sixth to 13th of May.
This year the celebrations will occur under the theme of “Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care,” and the Prime Minister emphasizes that the nurses and caregivers of country St. Maarten continuously strive to deliver quality health care to patients. “Our Nurses on St. Maarten oftentimes go far beyond what their job description entails; providing care for our sick and infirm and ensuring that those amongst us who are most vulnerable receive their much needed care. I must also commend our nurses for continually innovating to enhance the quality of patient care provided here on St. Maarten, whether improving conditions for one patient or solving a problem for many, their work is indispensible.
“Patients island-wide are benefitting from nurses’ leadership role in improving quality health care and in using their knowledge, compassion, and skills in helping patients maintain and improve their health, educate them about their treatment, and care for their bodies and minds throughout their lives. So once again to all nurses and on behalf of the people and Government of St. Maarten I would like to say thank you,” concluded the Prime Minister.
