Nurses that support MHRI are not only helping our investigators and patients, some of them are investigators themselves. The committed efforts of these nurse researchers and registered nurses lead to innovations to patient care at the bedside have a direct impact on the patients who enter our system every day. The distinct perspective of nurses allows them to help redefine clinical care in our healthcare system and we appreciate their efforts.
During this Nurses Week, I want to say a sincere THANK YOU to all the nurses in the MedStar system who support research studies and clinical care. With over 8,500 nurses as part of the MedStar Health system, you are on the front lines of our community.
Of the 3.4 million RNs in the United States, we are pleased that you have chosen to make MedStar Health your community. Your commitment to safe and high-quality patient care allows you to help us map out the future of our healthcare system.
