Fox Run Senior Living Celebrates National Nurses Week

Category: Health & Wellness

Author: Rhonda Nelson, Business Office Director

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. These permanent dates enhance planning and position National Nurses Week as an established recognition event. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week (May 6-12) each year. The nursing profession has been supported and promoted by the American Nurses Association (ANA) since 1896.

Lana Lewis has been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years and has experience in many different roles. Her nursing career spans from floor nurse to unit manager, ICU nurse, and now Director of Wellness. Residents would say Lana is very nice to them and family members would say our wellness team is very friendly and always meets the needs of their loved ones. I would like to commend the wellness team for all the hard work they do daily for our residents and families. We are lucky to have them.

The wellness team stepped up to support the community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. They went out of their way to keep our residents safe and spent one-on-one time with them, because their families couldn’t. A few of our wellness team members stayed in the community for days on end to make sure our residents were safe and extra staff was on hand if assistance was needed.

I want to give an extra shoutout to all our nurses for all they do every day; they are dependable staff. Nurse Ide Marcum gives this advice, “Always follow your heart and you will always love your job.”

We are recognizing our nurses at Fox Run Senior Living Fairborn, OH during National Nurses Week with a special dinner and a gift every day of the week.
