01 May National Nurses Day
Nurses are increasingly important in healthcare, and with over three million working nurses, these men and women are the most significant contributors to the United States healthcare industry.
From hospitals to urgent care clinics, retirement facilities, and home visits, nurses work day in and day out to help those who need it most. We celebrate National Nurses Day as a way to kickstart National Nurses Week, which ends on May 12th each year. Florence Nightengale, best known for her hand-washing and hygiene protocols during the Crimean War, was born on May 12th, so it’s only fitting that we conclude a week honoring nurses on her birthday. Nightingale and her many volunteers helped decrease the wartime death rate from 42% to just 2%. National Nurses Day and National Nurses Week are a way to honor Florence Nightengale and all other men and women who have followed in her footsteps since then.
Regardless of the location in which a nurse works, they are responsible for caring for those who cannot care for themselves, whether by physical, mental, or emotional limitations. All nurses know the importance of staying safe and sanitary to keep their patients as healthy as possible. As many people in hospitals or other facilities have weakened immune systems, eliminating as many germs as possible is crucial in keeping them safe and healthy. We are proud to do our part to help keep nurses safe. By using shoe covers and other forms of PPE, nurses can stop the spread of germs and other contaminants and provide the help that their patients require.
Did you know that the average nurse walks more than three miles each shift? Our shoe covers, dispensers, and removers are seven times faster than the industry average, allowing nurses to get back to their tasks without missing a beat. They don’t have to waste time putting on and removing shoe covers to keep their patients clean and safe. With our hands-free dispensers and removers, they also don’t have to worry about balancing on one foot, falling, or finding a place to put on their booties. We are proud to do our part to help nurses quickly, safely, and efficiently stay on task.
Today and every day, we thank nurses who care for us, our friends, and our family members. If you are responsible for ordering PPE at a healthcare facility, reach out to us to see how our shoe covers can help nurses better complete their daily tasks and shifts.
