Nurses and Midwives Are With You At Every Step Of Life

Nadia Ventura, a Clinical Manager at Calvary Hospital in North Adelaide, South Australia said “Nursing is a privilege – the best gift is knowing you have made a difference at every stage in the patient’s journey”.

At Calvary, the COVID-19 situation resulted in the two surgical wards working as one unit,  sharing knowledge and skills to enhance patient-centred care which in turn developed a positive experience for the patients.

One of the patients who was a baker, showed his appreciation and gratitude for the care he received by donating 150 individually wrapped hot cross buns to the staff during Easter, which the staff loved and lifted morale on the ward.

This is the  second short story in our series celebrating Year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020.
