A month dedicated to nurses for their hard work
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Local nurses have something new to look forward to. Yuma County Board of Supervisors honors local nurses for their hard work during the pandemic by proclaiming this May as Yuma County Nurses Month.
Nurses are often the middle-ground between doctors and patients. They are there to help patients medically, but also to comfort them through a difficult time, big or small.
The announcement was made Monday at the Board of Supervisors meeting. Yuma County Public Health Services District Director Diana Gomez also chimed in, thanking the nurses for working with numerous patients during such a scary and unpredictable time.
"Publicly thank all our nurses throughout the County who have done an amazing job through this pandemic and in response to our pandemic response. Our NAU, AWC, and ASU students who really stepped up, helped us from day one with our vaccination, with our testing," says YCPHSD Director Diana Gomez.
The proclamation was signed by Board of Supervisors Chairman Marco Tony Reyes.
