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.

Bloomberg Radio | The Price of Business | Features Larry Harmon- How Do Your Employees Know You Care? | Home Health Care Midland Tx

DSC03846Our very own, Mr. Larry Harmon, was interviewed for Bloomberg Radio this past week and we were jumping with excitement when it was finally published on The Price of Business webpage, #HOC has always celebrated in the capability they possess to stand out in the face of challenge and competition.  We are humbled and grateful that our efforts have not gone unnoticed and could not be more appreciative.

Mr.Hamon was asked a few questions, that he so eloquently answered, and here’s what was said:

Tell us how you show your employees that you care? We show employees we care by fostering a positive work environment where everyone has value and by recognizing achievements of each employee openly to further demonstrate our commitment to agency goals as well as the growth and development of the person in the course of doing what we do…We [also] have functions outside of the workplace in the forms of picnics (July 4th, Good Friday Easter Egg Hunt), special gatherings…” and this gives us the ability to show our employees, rather than tell them, how much we truly appreciate them and their hard work.


What mistakes do businesses make when it comes to cultivating a strong relationship with their employees? “Sometimes during the course of demonstrating commitment to employees, we tend to drift away from accountability by not stressing the importance of their being actively engaged in the things that make all of us better; proper work ethic, integrity, and compassion. Another mistake is not showing appreciation when goals are met or not holding everyone to the same standard, thereby negatively impacting morale (particularly the higher achievers).”


Why is it important for your firm to make employees feel valued? “When our employees feel valued we believe it has a direct correlation on their productivity. Also when people are built up on the inside it allows them to freely express outwardly what’s taking place inwardly.”

Nurses Rock | Home Health Care Midland Tx | Nurses Week 2014

Posted on Updated on


Of course they do, would we love them so much if they didn’t! Nurses work so hard to get where they are: nursing school, clinicals, exams and all the while juggling reality.  We know how proud they have to be of themselves, how proud their families are, but we also want to express how proud we are.

We know that the first one or two years after school can probably be the hardest for our loving nurses, but they wake up the next day, next month, next year, and keep going–they never give up! Perseverance is one character trait that we know every nurse must have, where they are in school, life and their careers speaks for itself


Here at #HOC, we are honored to be able to celebrate the #AMAZING, one-of-a-kind nurses that have been sent our way. We don’t believe in coincidences, so we know that our #compassionate #nurses were God-sent.  Thanks to our #super nurses, they have help pave the way for #HOC’s fourth year in a row as a Top Agency Nationwide. We couldn’t be more thankful, without them, we wouldn’t, we couldn’t be where we are and be headed where we need to go.


Every year at HOC, we conjure up the biggest celebration for our nurses, just to *show* our appreciation for them. In 2011, our theme was “Nurses in Hollywood“–elvis even made an appearance. In 2012, our nurses’ celebration was themed “Nurses Just Want to Have Fun” and we gave them a full-blown carnival experience with everything from game booths, vendors and, of course, caramel apples. In 2013, we celebrated our nurses by throwing them a “Nurses in Paradise Safari” celebration with all the fun accessories of being in paradise: straw hats, coconut drinks and what more than a zebra patterned cake!

This year was no exception. With the wild and crazy ideas of our administrator, and organizational skills of our Operations Manager, we put together what has to be one of the best Nurse’s Celebration to date. Take a look:


I seriously haven’t had so many emotions all in one day!  I felt like a kid again and I loved it! Thanks for allowing us to “feel” your appreciation for our hard work,” said R.N., Mayra Ramos (middle: photographed on ropes course).


I had a blast! I haven’t laughed like that in a long time,” exclaimed LVN, Anabelia Jasso (right: photographed during laser tag).


Thanks for the AWESOME time! I haven’t had THAT much fun in AGES!“-R.N., Melissa Miller (lower center on left: photographed before games).


To sum it all up, we love our nurses, we love what they do for us, for our patients and for the company. We want to wish all our special nurses across the nation a Happy #National #Nurses #Week. Have fun, and always remember, you ARE a Superhero in Scrubs!
