LOS ANGELES—Southern California nurses and other health care professionals are the latest to join in Shiggy’s viral dance craze, #ShiggyChallenge to Drake’s hit song In My Feelings—and it’s all in the name of patient care.
“We want our patients and our community to know that we are thinking of you, and we are doing everything we can to make sure there are enough of us to take care of you and your loved ones,” said Sarah Becaro, RN, BSN, at Kaiser Orange County, who takes the lead in the video, which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/unacuhcp/videos/2602423816450394/
The video, featuring registered nurses and pharmacists, joins Shiggy dance videos going viral featuring firefighters and other public servants. The nurses sing their own lyrics focusing on patient care. Year after year public polls show that nurses are the most trusted profession in the country.
“The public trusts nurses and health care professionals because they know that patient care is not just a profession for us, it’s a calling,” said Charmaine Morales, RN, Executive Vice President of UNAC/UHCP. “We are the team that makes sure you get what you need.”
The video is produced by and features registered nurses and other health care professionals who are members of United Nurses Associations of California/Union of Health Care Professionals and work at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California, calling on their colleagues to join the challenge and share their own videos at Facebook.com/HeartofKP.
United Nurses Associations of California/Union of Health Care Professionals (UNAC/UHCP) represents over 30,000 registered nurses and other health care professionals, including optometrists; pharmacists; physical, occupational and speech therapists; case managers; nurse midwives; social workers; clinical lab scientists; physician assistants and nurse practitioners. UNAC/UHCP is affiliated with the National Union of Hospital and Health Care Employees and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFL-CIO.
