Project “Looking for the Beloved Nurse”

 

The project campaign “Looking for the Beloved Nurse” was opened at Pauls Stradiņš Clinical University Hospital on 10 September 2015, in the framework of which the sincerest and the most responsive nurses from all the departments of Pauls Stradiņš Clinical University Hospital would be clarified.

 

The First Lady Iveta Vējone has undertaken to be the patroness of the project campaign “Looking for the Beloved Nurse”.

 

While getting acquainted with the hospital departments before the opening event, patroness of the project Mrs. I. Vējone tried to thank every nurse she met and she admitted that to get involved in this project was a true delight during the opening event. The campaign will result in the awarding cash prizes of 700 euro and certificates of recognition to 25 beloved nurses.


  
 

“I express my wholehearted support, the greatest respect, and the greatest gratitude for nursing work. Everyone wishes to be healthy, energetic, and active, but sometimes it does not happen that way in real life, and then it is very nice if you face understanding and helpful medical personnel. I admire selfless nursing work, inexhaustible energy, and their ability to find a sense of security. I hope that this campaign will increase the prestige of the nursing profession and that future medical professionals will choose this profession needed so much,” said the First Lady I. Vējone. The campaign is meant to draw attention to the nursing work, increase the prestige of the nursing profession, not forgetting that patient care and successful recovery depend on them.

 

The opening event of the campaign was attended by Ms. Inga Šīna, Chairperson of the Rietumu Banka Charity Foundation, Dr. Guntis Belēvičs, the Minister of Health of the Republic of Latvia, Ms. Anda Čakša, Member of the Board of Pauls Stradiņš Clinical University Hospital, Dace Kancāne, Head Nurse of Pauls Stradiņš Clinical University Hospital, and Gatis Madžiņš, Chief Editor of newspaper Diena.

  

 

The project was launched at Children's Clinical University Hospital (BKUS) in 2008, by choosing the beloved nurse for children. This campaign was based on the desire to bring the nursing profession into the light by showing how difficult this profession was, how often they were confronted with people who had some pain, but the nurses coped despite that, and their remuneration was not that high, as they would like.

 

The project “Looking for the Beloved Nurse” was initiated and supported by the Rietumu Banka Charity Foundation. Informative supporter of the project is newspaper Diena.
