It is National Nurses Week from May 6-12 and as you probably know, all of us at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) love nurses. We have nurses working here at NAHC HQ (Executive VP Andrea Devoti and Vice President for Regulatory Affairs Mary Carr) and nurses have been central to our mission from the very beginning. Our conferences are full of nurses every year and we count many among them as our close friends.
Nurses have long been America’s favorite people and every year the country shows some appreciation for nurses by treating them with some freebies and discounts. We don’t want to recommend anything in particular, but have a quick search on the Internet and you’ll probably find something you could use. (Here’s a head start.)
When NAHC learned that one of our members, Androscoggin Home Healthcare + Hospice, had three mother-daughter hospice nurses working for them in Maine, we knew there was a story (or two) to be written. How in the world did not one, not two, but three mother-daughter pairs come to work for the same company – and all as hospice nurses? NAHC Report traveled to Lewiston, Maine to find out.
