Striking Nurses Week | Best Home Health Midland TX | Abilene TX 

Posted on Updated on

Best Home Health Midland, TX, May 11, 2016 Hands of Compassion Home Care, Top Agency Nationwide, had the honor of celebrating National Nurse’s Week with some of the most dedicated and hardworking nurses in the West Texas!

Nurses on Strike What!!!!

We came up with the name Striking Nurses this year to remind them of how talented and beautiful they are inside and out!

H.O.C. Striking nurses was held on May 11th from 1 until 3pm. The location was at the Bowlero in Midland TX. We enjoyed every minute of it!


National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.   

As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week (May 6-12) each year.

The nursing profession has been supported and promoted by the American Nurses Association (ANA) since 1896.

Each of ANA’s state and territorial nurses associations promotes the profession at the state and regional levels. Each conducts celebrations on these dates to recognize the contributions that nurses and nursing make to the community.  

 Here at H.O.C., it is no secret that we continually find special ways to show appreciation for all of our patients, doctors, partners and staff, of course our nurses are no exception.

For the past few years, Hands of Compassion Home Care has celebrated with their RNs, LVNs and CNAs during National Nurse’s Week just to remind them of their value and our upmost appreciation.

Steven Sanchez, MPT, owner of Recover Home Therapy for his generous contribution to our nurses event! 432-889-3916

Some heart attacks are sudden and intense — the “movie heart attack,” where no one doubts what’s happening. But most heart attacks start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often people affected aren’t sure what’s wrong and wait too long before getting help. Here are signs that can mean a heart attack is happening: •Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain. •Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach. •Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort. •Other signs may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness. As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain. Learn about the warning signs of heart attack in women. Watch this animation of a heart attack (opens in new window)Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you’re not sure it’s a heart attack, have it checked out. Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives — maybe your own. Don’t wait – call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number. Watch this animation of a heart attack. Calling 9-1-1 is almost always the fastest way to get lifesaving treatment. Emergency medical services (EMS) staff can begin treatment when they arrive — up to an hour sooner than if someone gets to the hospital by car. EMS staff are also trained to revive someone whose heart has stopped. Patients with chest pain who arrive by ambulance usually receive faster treatment at the hospital, too. It is best to call EMS for rapid transport to the emergency room. American Heart Association
