Memorial Regional Medical Center philosophy of nursing
Mission and Values
Our service to our patients demonstrates clinical excellence, compassion, caring, trust and respect for human dignity. We provide holistic care that recognizes the uniqueness of each patient. Our nursing philosophy is based on our Bon Secours Mission, Vision and Values and Jean Watson's Caring Theory. Patients and families are our top priority.
Knowledge and Evidence
Knowledge Empowers. Nursing is committed to maintenance of competency and skill. Nursing is committed to embracing innovation, technology, and lifelong learning. Quality nursing care is achieved and sustained through autonomous practice, implementation of evidence based practice and continual contribution to the profession’s body of knowledge through research.
We are blessed with many partners in the work that we do. Partnerships with multiple levels of caregivers, ancillary staff, administration and physicians allow for collaborative practice that benefits those we serve. Global partnerships celebrate the cultural diversity of our staff, patients and community. We also partner with those around the world through mission.
Safety & Comfort
Safety and comfort are fundamentals of quality nursing care. Nursing's primary role has always been that of patient protector, and advocate. Ensuring our healthcare system is able to continue to provide safe efficient and cost effective care will require that nurses participate in designing the future of healthcare. Our nurses are engaged and committed to the task.
Caring for one another is essential to our mission. Teamwork and belonging create support and encouragement for team members. A safe work environment, work-life balance, justice and equality and an opportunity to contribute are essential elements in caring for one another that ultimately result in better quality of care for our patients.
