THROUGHOUT 2020, Mayo Private Hospital is shining the spotlight on its incredible nursing team.
On Tuesday, May 12, the hospital held an International Nurses Day function to celebrate all of their wonderful frontline health care workers. Some of the nurses reflected on what it means to be a Health Care worker at the hospital.
Registered Nurse, Kay Adams began her nursing career in 1978 and has loved it ever since she started. It's not only the camaraderie with her colleagues she enjoys but she says seeing her patients improve from when they are admitted to when they go home is rewarding. "Being a nurse means being an advocate for my patients and giving the best care than I can deliver," says Kay.
From the age of 13, Registered Nurse, Rebekah McMaster, knew she wanted to become a nurse. She has worked for Mayo for two months and says she has enjoyed every minute.
"My nursing philosophy would be to try and make the patient leave a happier healthier person than when they came in. Also, to treat them as if they were your family and ensure they have the best care."
"I am really lucky to have the opportunity to work with such amazing co-workers that allow me to really immerse myself in anything new."
