Rubbermaid Medical Solutions Celebrates ‘National Nurses Week’

Mobile cart provider gives back to nursing community and announces latest winner of “Increasing the Capacity to Care” Nursing Award

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rubbermaid Medical Solutions (RMS), the leading provider of medication carts and mobile computing solutions for healthcare facilities, recently celebrated National Nurses Week by honoring nurses at different hospitals throughout the nation. In addition, RMS announced the latest recipient of its Increasing the Capacity to Care® Nursing Award, a program recognizing the accomplishments of individual nurses around the country. National Nurses Week is held each year from May 6-12 and focuses on highlighting the diverse ways in which nurses are working to improve healthcare.

Last week RMS honored nurses by sponsoring lunches for nursing staffs at various hospitals. In addition, RMS representatives presented nurses with specially designed t-shirts and gifts in appreciation of their continued commitment to patient care.

“Nurses have a multitude of responsibilities. We know they are constantly working to provide the best patient care and experience,” said Will Hornor, Director of Marketing for RMS. “At RMS, we are thrilled to be able to honor the nurses who do so much for their community. Nurses are the backbone of healthcare and deserve the week of recognition that they receive.”

In addition to celebrating National Nurses Week through giveaways and special events, RMS has also announced the latest winner of its Increasing the Capacity to Care Nursing Award as Jorge Toledo, RN. The award, which was most recently offered to nurses working at University of Miami Health System, asks nurses to nominate their fellow colleagues through an online application process. Toledo’s nomination focused on his commitment to the use of information technology to improve patient safety and workflow efficiency, as well as his dedication to making sure patients had the best experience possible during their stay. As recognition of his accomplishment, Toledo will be receiving an American Express gift card, and Rubbermaid Medical Solutions will be donating to the University of Miami Health System’s Foundation in his name.

“The nurses at our facility always display compassion for patients and the drive to improve the quality of care given. This award program showed the level of commitment our staff has and we are proud of the work that each nurse puts into making the University of Miami Hospital one of the top learning facilities in the nation,” said Stephanie Moss, MSN, ANP-BC, Executive Director of Professional Practice and Standards and the University of Miami Hospital.
