Happy Nurses Week & Photo Gallery!

Posted: & Filed Under: Uncategorized

This year the ANA has designated 2017 as the “Year of the Healthy Nurse.” Join us during National Nurses Week, May 6–12, as we explore this year’s theme, “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.” It’s all about celebrating nurses like you who lead the charge for health and wellness. The CMS team was able to visit over 100 nurses this week (a new record, and we hope to visit even more next year) in hopes of recognizing everyone for their efforts and hard work. Thank you so much for all that you do, the care you provide, and the way you represent CMS!

Check out our Photo Gallery to view all the pictures and see below for some feedback from our staff:

“I cannot begin to tell you how touched I was when you showed up last Thursday at my Hospital while I was working my shift! The flower arrangement you presented me with is beautiful and I love the back pack with the goodies inside !! Since I began working for Chesapeake Medical Staffing, it has not only been a positive experience, but it has been a life changer for me !! I have developed new friendships with my new colleagues at my hospital, and I feel that I am part of the team! THANK YOU CHESAPEAKE MEDICAL STAFFING for making me feel so special and appreciated!! I am extremely honored for your recognition of my hard work and dedication to you, my hospital, and all my patients!!”

“Hey just writing to say from the bottom of my heart thank you all for surprising me with a rose and gifts for nurses week at work. It’s the simple gesture that matters. It was a busy day too, right after I finished cleaning my third Bm blast so that cheered me up and I sure did feel really appreciated and cared for. You know that’s all a nurse really needs on a busy crazy day. Plus I felt extra special because everyone one the floor is asking me what agency do you work for lol. Again thanks, been a pleasure working with you. I might just encourage hubby to come on board too because you all have been so nice to me. Well enjoy the rest of the week and happy 😊 Mother’s Day to you.”

“Thank you so much for the rose and the backpack! I have to say the flower is so pretty, smells wonderful, and was so nicely packaged I couldn’t believe it. The entire icu was admiring it all day. It really made me happy and brightened my afternoon of poop cleaning…the appreciation of such a thoughtful gift, that was so nicely prepared, that someone obviously put thought into, really made me feel special. Thanks!!!”
