Honoring the Unsung Heroes: Nurses Week

Honoring the Unsung Heroes: Nurses Week Recognizes the Heart of Healthcare

This week we pay tribute to honor the dedication and compassion of these unsung heroes who work tirelessly to provide high-quality care to patients. This year, Auxo Medical joins the world in celebrating the resilience and heroism of nurses.

From the Frontlines to the Bedside: The Impact of Nurses on Patient Care

Nurses are the backbone of the healthcare system, pivotal in bridging the gap between doctors and patients. Their expertise, professionalism, and empathy have immense implications for patient outcomes. They are responsible for managing patients’ pain, administering medications, monitoring vital signs, and managing overall patient care. They work long hours, sometimes double shifts, and provide care with a smile, even when stretched beyond their limit. It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic brought to light the significant role of nurses in patient care. Being true frontline warriors, nurses went the extra mile to care for patients and kept each other motivated despite the arduous conditions. The lengths to which they went to care for their patients during the pandemic emphasized that nurses are the unsung heroes of the healthcare system.

Celebrating the Compassionate Caregivers

Nurses have a vital impact on healthcare, and as we celebrate Nurse’s week, this is an excellent opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate the nurses among us. Through their compassionate care and lifesaving role, nurses play a critical role in making the world a better place. Auxo Medical is proud to take a moment to recognize the immense contribution of nurses to the healthcare system and we are please to be able to associate with so many in our day-to-day professional activities as well as in our own personal healthcare needs.

Thank you from all of us at Auxo Medical!

Healthcare Equity

Achieving Health Equity

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Equity is the absence of avoidable or remediable differences among groups of people, whether those groups are defined socially, economically, demographically, or geographically.”

The WHO goes onto explain, “Health inequities involve more than inequality with respect to health determinants, access to the resources needed to improve and maintain health or health outcomes. They also entail a failure to avoid or overcome inequalities that infringe on fairness and human rights norms.”

Systematic variances among different population groups have been in the news for years and is once again making headlines in recent weeks. Compared to other industrialized countries, the United States has historically ranked low on measures of health equity. Additionally, a 2017 report shows a wide variation of disparity in health status by state.

The economic strain of health disparities in America is expected to increase to $126 billion in 2020 and rising to over $350 billion by 2050 if the disparities stay the same.

Health gaps among different race populations in the U.S. is due in part to decades of systematic inequality — from housing to the economy, to the infrastructure of healthcare systems.

According to the Center for American Progress, in 2017, over 10% of African Americans or Black Americans were uninsured, compared to nearly 6% of non-Hispanic whites. Additionally, over 12% of African Americans (under the age of 65) reportedly had no health insurance coverage.
