November 7-13 is National Nurse Practitioner Week. The American Association for Nurse Practitioner’s 2021 theme is “Going the Extra Mile” and their proclamation shares, “For more than half a century, NPs have been leading the charge to reduce health disparities and ensure that high-quality, person-centered health care is readily accessible to people in communities nationwide. During the COVID-19 pandemic, NPs have been on the front lines, leading efforts to test, diagnose and treat patients and to prevent the spread of the virus. NPs provide care to those who need it most — in their homes; in primary, acute, specialty and long-term care settings; and via telehealth — meeting patients where the need is greatest.”
At Hospice of the Piedmont, our NPs provide a comprehensive approach to patient care that benefits those we serve on a daily basis. Join us as we celebrate these valuable members of our hospice care team!
