Nurses Week: Blessing of the Hands

Chaplain Brennan Francois says a prayer with nurses at Georgia Regents Medical Center during one of many Blessing of the Hands ceremonies on National Nurses Day during National Nurses Week 2015.

Hospital chaplains roam the hospital floors each year walking from unit to unit to anoint the hands, offer a blessing, and pray with the more than 1,200 nurses who provide care to patients at GRHealth.
