Columbia Asia Hospitals launches initiative to salute nurses across the country

May 12, 2020

To celebrate and salute the selfless effort up put by the nurses across the country on the occasion of ‘International Nurses Day,’ Columbia Asia Hospitals have launched a week-long campaign #GuardiansOfcare on their Facebook page, an initiative to express gratitude and support the rigorous effort put by the nursing staff across the country.

Through this campaign, the hospital is urging the nurses to share their selfie in uniforms and let the world know and meet their GuardiansOfcare.The public can participate in GuardiansOfcare by posting a message by thanking and sharing their experiences on how a nurse touched their life.

This is a way to thank nurses for being the face of care in healthcare and honour them for their dedication, commitment and never-ending enthusiasm. As the hospital believes 2020 is the year of nurses and midwives and that together we should celebrate the undying spirit and effort put by the nurses. At this extreme pandemic situation of COVID-19, where the world is going haphazard, nurses are the "health warriors" who are standing at the forefront fighting against the situation and saving lives without the fear of the spread of infection.

Col Binu, senior vice president, nursing services, Columbia Asia Hospitals, says that "We want to pay tribute to the tireless work of nurses across the country through this initiative. All the nurses across the country are volunteering and are standing like a wall to fight the pandemic. Indeed, they are true-warriors. All the heroes deserve recognition, for putting themselves at risk. We thank all the forefront nurses and healthcare staff across the country for their tremendous effort in trying to bring back normalcy in common people’s lives. We want them to know that they are treasured and appreciated not just for one day but every day for their dedication and commitment."
