Public Hospital in Abu Dhabi Marks International Nurses Day With Special Events

Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC), managed by the Cleveland Clinic, Abu Dhabi, celebrated International Nurses' Day with the theme "Nurses: A Force for Change: Care Effective, Cost Effective."

The International Council of Nurses decided their theme for this year to maximise efficiency and effectiveness in the industry is to bring out the potential of nurses and to reflect the continuous rising costs in healthcare.


"Patients may not always remember our names, but they always remember the 'nurse' who was there to hold their hand, share a tear, give them a hug or smile and kind word, celebrate their progress, or explain something they didn't understand," said Safa Al Mustafa, Deputy Chief Nursing Officer, SKMC.

Dr. Abdulmajeed Al Zubaidi, Chief Medical Officer at the hospital, said: "We are proud of the accomplishments that our nursing team has made in positive changes that promote safe, quality, evidence-based, and patient-centred care. Winning the Press Ganey NDNQI Nursing Quality Award, and being the only facility outside of the USA to achieve this, is a great accomplishment, together with the attainment of the Dubai Quality Award."

SKMC has conducted a number of planned activities such as role playing games, Nurses Got Talent, cake cutting, and delivered fruit baskets across the departments to all the nurses.

"We should not confine our gratitude to this day. We should be thankful to our great nurses for their hard work and dedication to providing exemplary care and an unforgettable patient experience every day of the year. We are proud and honoured to support nursing staff in ensuring the promotion of innovative nurse-led projects as well as supporting nurses in their efforts to lead change," said Dr Aref Al Shehhi, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of SKMC.
