Shamala D/O Govindasamy

I have been working in NUH for seven years. Every day, I meet people from all walks of life. I feel a sense of satisfaction whenever I help people.     

Once when I was on duty, I noticed an elderly patient who looked very agitated.  She was accompanied by her caregiver who seemed somewhat helpless. I found out that the patient has dementia. As my mother also has a similar condition, I was able to empathise with them. Together with her caregiver, I managed to calm the patient down. 

Being in a male-dominated industry, it can be challenging at times, but this doesn’t bother me. I believe that nothing is “impossible” – the word itself says “I’m possible”!
