Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Ill., recently recognized the role nurses play in peoples lives by screening a newly released film at the Tivoli Theatre in downtown Downers Grove.
Hundreds of nurses and their family members, hospital officials and others touched by nurses were invited to watch “Nurses: If Florence Could See Us Now,” a 90-minute independent feature documentary, on May 7.
The event was sponsored by Good Samaritan Hospital in honor of National Nurses Week.
“When I saw this film, I was moved to tears by its portrayal of what it means to be a nurse and the many ways nurses impact patients and their families,” said Marjorie Maurer, RN, MSN, NEA-BC, vice president of operations and CNE at Good Samaritan Hospital. “I wanted everyone I know to see it as well, which is why we decided to invite all of our nurses and their families to a screening at the Tivoli. Its a way for us to honor and support our nurses.”
Good Samaritan Hospital nurses were recognized on the historic Tivoli Theatres marquee during the showings.
The film includes interviews with more than 100 nurses from across the country and offers a look into the complex and challenging profession.
