Celebrate the power of nurses

During National Nursing Week (May 9 to 16, 2011), the Winnipeg Health Region is taking the opportunity to celebrate the important role of nurses in health care. We have asked Manitobans to share their stories about the impact nurses have had on their lives and on the lives of people they care about. Here are some of those stories:

LTI LTI's Story

When they arrived at the hospital LTI and his wife were excited and anxious knowing their baby was on the way. What they weren't prepared for was a sudden turn of events that triggered plenty of questions about baby Emily's arrival. LTI credits the nurses who helped calm him and his wife throughout their emotional journey and for helping deliver their sweet baby girl.

Natalie Stanger Natalie's Story

When Natalie Stanger's six month old daughter Abigail was staring off into space, her Mother instincts kicked in and led her to the emergency department.  Abigail was admitted to Children's Hospital where she stayed for a week while the health-care team confirmed she was having seizures and found a way to treat the condition with the right medication.  In addition to caring for Abigail, Natalie says the nurses provided much needed support to her too.
