LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Talk about a sweet Nurse Week surprise - officers with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department stopped by Southern Hills Hospital Tuesday morning with dozens of donuts to say thank you to the nurses.

Officers went to different departments to personally say thank you and deliver handwritten notes.

"We just want to say thank you to all of LVMPD for coming and thanking all of us. It means a lot to us. We really appreciate your service and we feel appreciated in return," said Adam Mathis, nurse leader at Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

And despite it being police week too, LVMPD says its officers wanted to show appreciation for nurses as the pandemic continues.
