Praising our wonderful nursing staff

Praising our wonderful nursing staff

Southern DHB nurses are being congratulated and praised even more than usual on Monday (May 12), as they celebrate International Nurses Day.

DHB nurses will gather at awards ceremonies being held in Dunedin and Southland on Monday. The Awards celebrate and acknowledge nursing innovation, clinical excellence and outstanding practice in nursing across the region.

Southern DHB Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Leanne Samuel said that, "International Nurses Day is a great opportunity for us to celebrate the work of our wonderful nurses at the Southern DHB. We have absolutely extraordinary nurses and there are so many fantastic examples of our expert nursing staff going the extra mile to deliver the very best care for patients and our community."

New Graduate Registered Nurse, Emma Gibson who works on Ward 8B at Dunedin Hospital said that, "the chance to celebrate my profession is great. Nurses are not always the best at talking about the work we do and the difference we make to people's lives. I love my job, it's great to be able to help people, I love learning new things and no day is ever the same."

Emma's patient, Mrs Ngair McGroucher, praised the nurses at Dunedin Hospital for their care. "They're excellent nurses," she said. "They're very caring, thoughtful, they anticipate what I need and above all I feel really confident in them."

Southern DHB employs over 2000 nurses who all make the most significant contribution to improving the health and wellbeing of patients in the Southern District. Each year the invaluable role that nurses play in keeping people in New Zealand and around the world as healthy and independent as possible is recognised on International Nurses Day (12 May), the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth. It is a day for the community and the Southern DHB to say thank you.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
