In this age of technology, it is often the nurse who brings the human touch to health care. We are present with our patients at all times of the day and night. We help people to recovery and we help people to a peaceful transition at end of life. We are often the first hands to hold our patients and the last hands to hold our patient’s hands. Nursing is more than giving medications, changing dressings, collecting vital signs, assessing physiologic status. It is about understanding how medications can affect healing. It is understanding that wounds heal in different ways. It is understanding that vital signs and assessments represent a patient’s story of health or illness. We make a difference in people’s lives every day through building relationships with them. We care for people at their most vulnerable moments and they welcome our presence! What a privilege to be a nurse!
Nursing at High Point Regional is very special and the following Web pages will give you a glimpse of what makes our jobs so special. You will see descriptions of the departments where nursing care is delivered—this includes non-traditional as well as the traditional sites. You will also find information about our teams. The role of our teams is to determine why and how we do our work and how to reward and recognize that work. These teams have been established and in place for many years and we are very proud of the work that the members of these teams do.
