DUNDEE KZN: Nurses honour colleagues who have succumbed to Covid-19

It was said that nurses are often the only health professionals accessible to many people in their lifetime.

International Nurses’ Day is celebrated annually by various countries on May 12, the anniversary of the birthday of modern-day nursing founder Florence Nightingale. Dundee Hospital also marked the day with nurses lighting candles and saying their ‘Nurses Pledge’ at midday.

Bishop Thulani Xaba led a guard of honour of nurses to the venue, where nursing manager NT Mkhize gave a motivational speech to the nurses. She focused on the pledge, which emphasises having ‘the utmost respect for human life’.

The day also served as a Remembrance Day for the healthcare workers and nurses who have passed away during the Covid-19 pandemic. Bishop Xaba gave a powerful spiritual message and encouraged the nurses to do their best at all times to save lives.

It was said that nurses are often the only health professionals accessible to many people in their lifetime. So nurses are particularly well placed and often the most innovative in reaching disadvantaged communities.
