“Each one of us, it doesn’t matter which department we work in, we are all committed to our residents here,” Francee Sviridoff, the lead social worker said.
Lamont gave a heartfelt speech and said, “It’s not just the extraordinary skill which you bring as amazing nurses, but it’s the love you bring.”
