AUSTIN (KXAN) — Nurses and staff at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center got a pawsome treat for the start of National Nurses Week.
Nurses and staff were visited Monday by Therapy Pet Pals of Texas. Former St. David’s volunteer Lynn Ashley brought her dog Sadie to the medical center to spread some joy to the nursing staff.
According to nurse.org, National Nurses Week “celebrates the effort, dedication, and sacrifice nurses make every day.”
The week is observed May 6-12 each year.
