  • Fighting Nostalgia

    It’s been more than a week now since the last time I blogged. I was interrupted by some social events in the workplace and by some activities at home. I also noticed that I easily get tired lately that I felt the need breath out and rest so I was asleep most of the time. And during my spare time, I can’t help but to watch television these past few days, and it seems to be that it is becoming a part of my routine before I get to bed or after coming from work. That could be a sign of homesickness, a separation anxiety that anyone who’s away from home has to deal with.Image Source: http://thepleat.com/

  • Overwhelming Response to BlogCritics

    From Technorati, only then I came across with Blogcritics which from my research, is an online magazine which offers writing reviews in all aspects covering all the contemporary culture and society with more than 3600 registered writers. Image Source: http://www.ryjennings.com

  • Friendster Demolition or Reinvention?

    The first time Friendster was introduced was the actual hallmark or the beginning of the interactive social media connection and "Friendster" being the pioneer was considered as the original and even the "father" of all social networks. Image Source: http://atothepandm.files.wordpress.com

  • Technorati: verifying the Claim Token

    In order to optimize my blog, I need Technorati to have my blog become more visible in search engine. Unlike here in Blogger.com, in Wordpress.com, blogs can be automatically visible from search engines by adjusting the setting without making too much effort to increase traffic, but since I migrated here, I had to register and claim authorization on my blog.

  • World Press Freedom Day

    What could have been with a world without freedom to express? It could have been a diversity of prisoners in detentions with no chance to claim the rights to be heard. It could have been a place where there is no room to break the silence and the use of mouth to speak is not possible in which the chain and the mode of communication seems to be weak and built without advocacy.

Nurse's Day Celebration: Making a Difference

Posted by Ma. Theresa Macabuag On 10:07 PM No comments

King Khalid University Hospital Celebrating Nurse's Day

Florence Nightingale's works and efforts had been greatly recognized for ages and the footprints she left and the image she established had been greatly remarkable from the history as the foundation she built marked the beginning of "Nursing Profession" that without her passion and enthusiasm in her labor to render care and to heal the sick, the so called "NURSES" today would not exist. 

Through formal education, the health care and nursing practice had been standardized, and today, competency is what nurses deliver through updated knowledge, solidified skills and proper attitude towards providing safe and quality services to clients, patients, significant others and co-workers and that is how nurses make a difference in their daily practice. 

Moreover, with all the efforts and supports of nurses, the system of care had been greatly achieved in every institution and the required organizational practice in the deliverance of medical and nursing care had been proven effective reflecting the improvement and the betterment of the standards of practice highlighting the patient's safety­ and the quality of service, thereby assisting patients or clients towards the optimum level of health and wellness, and towards the maximum level of functioning.

Patient’s safety is synonymous to quality care that is essential to a systematic and organized behavior in the standards of health care practice. It advocates all the life saving measures in terms of interventions and treatment that goes along with the patient’s plan of care, minimizing all the risk, avoiding errors and promoting a no blame culture. 

Celebrating today is the NURSE'S DAY with the theme of "Nurses: Making a Difference Everyday," and King Khalid University Hospital along with the other hospitals, organizations and other institutions had once again recognized all the efforts of nurses in order to achieve the level of competency in terms of quality of services.

Here are some of the photos taken from the event held in King Khalid University Hospital Auditorium
