Erie Medical Malpractice Lawyers Post Nurse Award Info

May 1, 2011

May 2, 2011, ERIE, PA — Every day, committed health care professionals care for us in our most vulnerable moments. Frequently, the health care professionals with whom we spend the most time are nurses. If you know a nurse who has impressed you with his or her compassion and dedication, you can do more than just say, “Thank You.” The Pennsylvania Nightingale Awards are seeking nominations for exceptional nurses in six categories: Advanced Clinical Practice, Clinical Practice RN, Clinical Practice LPN, Nursing Administration, Nursing Research and Nursing Education.

You can find more information about the awards by going to their website, www.nightingaleawards.org and you can download or fill out on-line a nomination form HERE.

Seem strange to find a medical malpractice lawyer publicizing awards for nurses? It shouldn’t. We’re big fans of the community’s health care team. At Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. we have high regard for the many professional, compassionate, dedicated people who serve as physicians, nurses and other health care providers. As I’ve blogged about here before, many of my family members are or have been doctors, nurses and health care administrators.

Our goal is not to demonize the health care profession but rather to recognize that sometimes avoidable mistakes are made and that the victims of those mistakes deserve to be compensated.

So, if you know of a nurse deserving of recognition, contact the Nightingale Awards and make a nomination.
