TANGLA, May 12: Along with the rest of the world, Udalguri also observed the 198th International Nurses Day under the theme ‘Health is human right’.
Under the aegis of the nurses of Udalguri Block PHC, the day was celebrated in a befitting manner at the Bordoloi Bhawan premises here in Tanglaon Saturday. Gracing the occasion as the chief guest, SDO(C) Bhergaon, D.Hazarika expressed his gratitude to the nursing fraternity for their tireless effort and sacrifices towards serving the mankind. Recalling Florence Nightingale, Hazarika acknowledged the strong commitment, compassion and dedication that nurses display in the practice of their profession.
“The day should be a source of inspiration for the people. Like the teaching profession, nursing is a social service. Nurses and medical workers are often vulnerable to hooliganism by attendants of patients. The police and civil administration exhort the government to formulate laws to deal with such instances and protect the medical workers in hospitals,” he said.
