National Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2021)

National Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2021) and International Nurses Day (May 6)

We thank all our nurses.  Who will you thank?  The National Nurses Week will raise awareness of the value of nursing. It will help educate about the role nurses play in meeting healthcare needs. The World Health Organization recognized 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse” to elevate and celebrate nurses’ essential contributions everywhere. #ThanksHeathHeros

As one of the most significant healthcare professionals within the U.S., nurses play a vital role in providing health services. They’ve become heroes during the global pandemic for their selfless dedication to the patients they serve. Nurses most often are the primary healthcare professional when it comes to tending to patient needs, providing medical care and tending to personal and spiritual needs. 

We can only imagine how much this work has increased in the last year.

As these frontline workers continue to care for the sick, suffering extended absences from their families and putting their lives at risk – we cannot just stand by and watch. Showing appreciation for all their strenuous efforts is a must!

What are some things you can do to show your appreciation or say thank you?

Donate what you can

Donations are a great way to show your support. Monetary donations or giving supplies – and we all probably know a local hospital or two that need help.

Could you provide them with the necessities they need?

Since nurses are risking their lives every day, it is essential to keep them safe and comfortable – supplying them with PPE kits, masks, gloves, sanitizer, lip balm, and more. 

If you are looking for any help in finding items to donate or gift – to say thank you – we are here to help you in any way. Customizing is always an option.

Call Marisa Banke today with any questions – 866.816.7823 ext.7752.

Earth Day – Looking for Ways to Protect Yourself & the Planet?

People are living in an ever-changing world – and just one year ago, the pandemic was a big one.

How has it affected us as a society? How has it affected our lives personally? The daily adjustments every one of us had to make to cope and live amongst one another was a definitive change – let’s all think about this during Earth Day. In this case, we adjust to three new practices – wearing masks, sanitizing our hands, and practicing social distance.   Each item protects yourself and the Planet.
The pandemic has not only affected the population but the environment too. Improvements in the air and water quality – due to quarantining – occurred in the latter half of 2020. Although significant, the haphazard disposal practices of organizations and society have created a negative impact. It makes one think, though.

What part can we play to lessen that negative impact?

A fundamental question as a person or business you should be asking yourself. In short, we can start with how the pandemic has worked its way into our daily living, as stated above.

For one, you are wearing a mask.

Choosing to use a reusable mask, such as fabric, is a start. Disposable masking offers a quick and easy solution to protect oneself – if not correctly disposed of, and it later can have negative impacts. Reusable masks will not be just safe for you and your community but the environment as well. You cannot only choose unique styles that suit you, but you can also relax in the knowledge that you won’t be adding unnecessary risk to the planet (source: Kalopsia).

Sanitizing is and will always be important going forward.

Hand sanitizers are green because most of the active ingredients are natural sources. A majority of hand sanitizers do not contain fragrances or dyes, which adds to the “environmentally-friendly” position (source: Clean link). Using eco-friendly brands is a must – and of course, if you do not have hand sanitizer at your reach – wash your hands!

Lastly, practicing social distance has been difficult for most of us, but it is necessary and doable.

If you are a small-business owner or work for a large organization – it can be not easy. The right signage – floor decals, wall graphics, window signs, or flags – can make this enforcement easier. Eco-friendly options are out there – and with the use of the graphics, it would not only protect your patrons but the environment too.

Vaccine Rollout – Are You Ready?

Have you reopened your business and are having trouble communicating that to your customers?

The last year has been one for the history books. Many states are phasing in or out of their reopening plans, and customers require factual and frequent business information. The digital aspect, including email and social media—can get you only so far. Signage is the way to go these days. A creative, attractive sign can help your business stand apart from the competition.

Exterior signs can draw attention to your business and aid in differentiating it from others in the area.

While interior signs help customers locate merchandise and lead them to impulse buy. Signs serve as a type of silent salesperson for your business.

Do you have limited marketing funds?

Signs can be cost-effective and a great way to advertise. Its potential to reach a large audience is very high—mostly local clientele. They are versatile and can also be useful for off-premises use. The pandemic has changed our day-to-day lives, and informational signs and graphics can help your business grow and get your message out—the opportunity to think creatively on how to deliver your message.

For example, will you or a business you know be providing COVID-19 vaccinations soon or just preparing for the new day-to-day? Get your location ready sooner rather than later. Help provide assurance and confidence with temporary wall graphics, window clings, posters, and banner stands that display helpful tips and vaccine information.

As they say, “stay ahead of the curve.”
