WASHINGTON — As health care workers continue to serve on the front-lines of the coronavirus pandemic, Nurses Week couldn't come at a better time. From Wednesday, May 6 to Tuesday, May 12, nurses will be recognized for their hard work.

The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists said it plans to expand National Nurses Week to a "month-long celebration in May to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing."

It makes one wonder how long "non-essential" medical care be put off before it turns into something worse.

Is the guy who just needed a few stitches in his hand going to show up in the hospital later losing an arm to gangrene?
