The Office Of Health Standards Compliance pays tribute to nurses on International Nurses’ Day 2024

As the global health community and the world at large commemorate International Nurses Day, the Office of the Health Standard Compliance (OHSC), the regulator of healthcare services, joins in recognising and acknowledging the commitment and dedication of all nurses. This year’s International Nurses’ Day is celebrated under the theme “Our Nurses, Our Future. The Economic Power of Care”, as set by the International Council of Nurses (ICN). The Council set out the economic power of care, which creates healthy people and societies and drives healthy economies. Nurses are critical stakeholders of the OHSC; the entity shares the fraternity’s belief that investing in people leads to a healthy workplace, communities, and economies, all promoting economic and health security.
Nurses play a crucial role in creating a safe and healthy healthcare environment. With this considered, the OHSC will continue to work with nurses and other health professionals to ensure quality and safety in healthcare across all health sectors.
“Today, we celebrate our nurses for the invaluable role they play in improving the lives of our communities and their incredible power of care that heals our families; our nurses remain at the forefront when it comes to diagnosing and treating the numerous ailments that our communities encounter,” stated Dr Siphiwe Mndaweni, OHSC Chief Executive Officer, in observance of this day. As the regulator of the healthcare sector, the OHSC appreciates and thanks all the nurses for their resilience and compassion in health sectors.
