Applauding Nurses Around the World!

Nurses

We are proud to be celebrating National Nurses Week from May 6 – May 12 together with National Student Nurses Day, National School Nurse Day, and International Nurses Day throughout the week. 

The COVID-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the vital role nurses serve in hospitals and medical centers across the country. Nurses have a multi-faceted role and one of their most important tasks is to help “understand their doctor’s diagnosis, and how to manage symptoms. This [diagnosis and symptom understanding] assists the patient to obtain a high level of quality information at discharge, so they fully understand the importance of following medical advice when they return home.” (1)

The basis for forming strong patient relationships is based on providing relevant patient data efficiently. Efficient patient data sharing contributed to the adoption of innovative solutions, such as cloud-based Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS).  The UltraLinq Solution, for example, allows nurses to access patient data from any location with an internet connection, including all patient demographics, pre-read notes, patient attachments, moving clips, still images, and physician comments. Whether our nurses are in private practice or on the hospital front lines, they can use current or previous exam information to inform their patients of the best treatment pathways.

Last month, the dedicated World Health Day honored Nurses.  The World Health Organization shared, “Nurses and other health workers are at the forefront of COVID-19 response – providing high quality, respectful treatment and care, leading community dialogue to address fears and questions and, in some instances, collecting data for clinical studies. Quite simply, without nurses, there would be no response”. (2)

Facts you didn’t know about nursing:

  • In 1873, the first three nursing schools opened in the USA. By the start of the 20th century, almost 800 nursing schools were in operation across the country.
  • Today, there are approximately 3.1 million practising nurses.
  • Nurses average about 4-5 miles of walking during each 12-hour shift. (3)  

In celebration of this year’s National Nurses Week, UltraLinq would like to thank each and every nurse for their dedication to patient care.  Whether on the front lines with COVID-19 or as professionals in offices around the world, we thank you.
