International Nurses Day 2023 observed in Tripura

A mega blood donation festival was organized on the occasion of “International Nurses Day 2023” at IGM Hospital on Thursday. At the beginning of the programme, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State President Rajib Bhattacharjee, Dharmaguru Goutam Mishra and other dignitaries paid floral tribute to the portrait of Florence Nightingale.

Nurses Day is celebrated on the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), who is widely considered the founder of modern nursing.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State President Rajib Bhattacharjee said that Nurses play an essential role in our medical institutions such as giving safety or help in the recovery of patients etc. No doubt when some patient is in need of care then nurses work tirelessly to identify and protect the needs of the individual.

"If we donate blood, it would not just help the patients but our own bodies as well. Donation of blood is like servicing one's own system as it helps your body form new blood more often and so become more robust". There is no alternative of blood. The demand of blood could only be met through voluntary blood donation, he said, adding that one can save a precious life by donating blood.
