Kind deeds honour Prince Edward County hospital’s staff and nurses

Thanking Paul Massey, owner of Tim Hortons in Picton and Wellington (centre) were Briar Boyce, senior development officer with the PECMH Foundation, left, and Gillian Taylor, a clerk in the patient registration department.

In recognition of National Nurses Week and as part of the #TimsforGood initiative being undertaken by Tim Hortons restaurants across the country, Paul Massey, owner of the Hortons restaurants in Picton and Wellington presented the entire staff at QHC PECMH with Tim Hortons gift cards to help staff feel appreciated and supported during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s a small gesture to say thank you to those making a big impact during this uncertain time,” said Massey. “During a time when hours are long and stress is high, we hope this small token of appreciation will make even the slightest difference for the staff working at the hospital.”

The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary volunteers also took time to thank the nurses.

They joked that volunteer Helen Hotston was trying to bribe them to let her back inside to volunteer.

“The auxiliary realizes how hard it is for our nurses in normal times, but they now are working under such intense pressure. The auxiliary only wishes they could come back and help them,” she said.

Meanwhile, the nurses were thrilled to receive artwork, posters and words of encouragement and thanks from students at CML Snider School in Wellington. They are thanked for “doing an amazing job of making the week brighter for the staff at QHC PECMH.”
