Jackson Parish Hospital celebrating Respiratory Care and National Infection Prevention Week

Breathing is not something we generally think about, until we struggle to breathe. This week, October 24-30, some of the unsung heroes in the medical field are celebrated and that includes the Respiratory Team at the Jackson Parish Hospital who has been front line defenders of the COVID-19 pandemic for Jackson Parish residents. Sincere thanks and gratitude is given for the compassion, dedication, and selfless way you have strived to improve the lives of patients, one breath at a time. Thank you for all that you do!

The Jackson Parish Hospital also recognized Infection Preventionist, Sandy Kinman last week during National Infection Prevention Week which ran from October 17th – 24th. Established in 1986, IIPW aims to shine a light on infection prevention each and every year. This year’s theme was “Make Your Intention Infection Prevention.” Thank you Sandy for all of your hard work in keeping Jackson Parish Hospital and our community safe and healthy!
