Could you share a story which inspires you?
A patient’s father was under a lot of stress and in denial of his son’s condition. His son was bedbound and he had high expectations for his son’s care. When his son was assigned to me, I tried my best to make the patient as comfortable as possible and engaged the father in the care. He came to understand and appreciated the efforts rendered by the nurses.
Working as a nurse allows me to meet people from different walks of life.I have learnt to better support the patients and their families emotionally over the years.
What keeps you motivated at work?
I am happy to be part of a great team that is always there to support each other. My seniors are also there to teach and guide us whenever we are in doubt.
Teamwork is important as it improves staff morale.
