It's Nurse Appreciation Week. Caregivers are being honored around the world and here at home.
At Billings Clinic, outstanding nurses from each department are recognized by their peers. New this year, one exceptional nurse is being honored for providing excellent care to a patient during a surgery recovery. Registered nurse, Shane Salminen said the recognition came as a big surprise. "You never know what's going on in someone's life until you walk a mile in their shoes. I really accepted and embellished that role to do what's the best for my patients when I walk in," Salminen said.
"It was a great feeling know that these are the kind of nurses who are taking care of patients, and as nurses we don't get to be on the other end of the bend. So, to have someone taking care of you was just a great genuine honor," Registered Nurse, Kristen Loper said.
