Nurses have given so much - so company buys them lunch

In celebrating its 13th anniversary and a continued commitment to giving back to the Bahamian community, the Bahamas Striping Group of Companies plans to celebrate nurses and the work they’ve done during the pandemic and beyond, by treating 300 nurses to lunch at the end of the month at Manuelo’s Restaurant.

BSGC managing director, Dr Allen Albury, said it is an absolute privilege for the company to partner with the nursing community.

“What we do recognise at BSGC, is to whom much is given, much is required, and it has always been our mantra of giving back across the country, and we often overlook the contributions of so many who are out there on the frontline some of which have personal challenges, yet they have to deliver”, he said.

This initiative happens to coincide with International Nurses Month.

Traditionally celebrated from May 6 to May 12 each year, International Nurses Month is now a month-long celebration to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing.

Nurse Gina Dean, Acting Director of Nursing, expressed her gratitude to BSGC for reaching out to the nursing community.

“Over the last couple of years, we have demonstrated that there is so much value to being a nurse, and the profession, and to have a company remember us as nurses continues to make a difference while providing quality patient care,” she said.

While administration of healthcare has always been a challenge for nurses and physicians, Dr Dionne Dames, Internal Medicine Specialist, at The Princess Margaret Hospital said she would like to applaud the nurses for all that they do, as they have been challenged over the last two years doing many things that most of the community is not aware of and they have truly been a pillar to our country during the pandemic.
