How are others planning National Skilled Nursing week? What activities?
This is also the week we thank our employees for their work, what ideals can you give me? Thank you

A very busy week indeed! We highlight each department throughout the week of National Skilled Nursing Week, and our executive team comes down and helps serve food or takes on an aspect of that department's job duties for an hour or so, which always gets a good laugh! Be sure to honor all shifts - while it is late the 11 to 7 shift works just as hard!

In the morning we had medical items, old bed pans, etc in a display, and read a snippet of historical stories about nurses in the war years and had a morning tea for staff. In the afternoon I organised massage therapists to come in for a couple of hours in the afternoon and give free massages to nursing staff. The residents set the relaxing area up, with aromatherapy, fresh flowers, pretty table cloth, etc, I also did hand massages for staff and residents. We also made huge thank you signs and put them up everywhere.
