Fighting COVID-19 looks like this: Sarah’s story

For Sarah Lim, a speech therapist at the National University Hospital (NUH), her day-to-day work saw her possibly coming into contact with respiratory droplets, which are known to transmit COVID-19.

Hear me out

People who are unfamiliar with audiology may think that audiologists deal with sound equipment, or that we only conduct hearing tests. We definitely do more than this!

Teacher’s Day: No dream too big

When Dr Jenny Loo first stepped into the field of audiology some 20 years ago, she had a simple yet ambitious goal: To nurture and build future generations of audiologists in Singapore.

#CouragetoCareSG: Behind the scenes with a medical technologist

Unlike some of my healthcare colleagues who interact directly with COVID-19 patients, I work behind the scenes, analysing results of test samples to determine if the virus is present in them.

#CouragetoCareSG: Leading the charge as a pharmacist

When COVID-19 struck and the call came for volunteers to join the dormitory medical post team, I hesitated. However, as the virus continued to spread, I felt the need to contribute.

#CouragetoCareSG: A medical social worker’s sense of responsibility towards the community

I was neither fearful nor surprised when I was deployed to the front lines. As a medical social worker, I know the services we provide are essential.

#CouragetoCareSG: Never take a breath for granted

Senior Respiratory Therapist Emelin Tan works closely with a team of medical professionals in the fight against COVID-19 at both the National Centre for Infectious Diseases and Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

#CouragetoCareSG: Diagnostic radiographer overcomes uncertainty on the frontline

Many people many not realise this, but diagnostic radiographers play a crucial role in fighting the COVID-19 virus.

Empowering patients, finding strength

Presented with the lives of those who have fallen through the cracks, Gideon Ng couldn’t help but feel inclined towards a career where he could make a difference in the lives of others. Social work seemed like the perfect fit.

#CouragetoCareSG: Occupational therapist smiles with her eyes

I wasn’t fearful to care for potential COVID-19 cases as an occupational therapist. I thought that it was going to be the same as attending to patients in an isolation ward. My parents who are residing in China were more worried than I was.

Walking the talk

Owing to my days as a Red Cross cadet, my interest in a healthcare career had been piqued at a young age. Medicine or nursing may have seemed like obvious choices, but I wasn't convinced.

Inspiring young minds in speech therapy

It all started when my older sister, a social worker, introduced me to speech therapy and encouraged me to pursue it as my career.

Occupational therapy — not just a job

It all began when Evelyn’s friend was able to engage in personally meaningful activities thanks to the help of an occupational therapist, who taught her how to use a computer again with the help of adaptive equipment.

Breathing life into patients

There were healthcare scholarships for commonly-known professions but what intrigued me was respiratory therapy. The more I read about the profession, the more interested I was.

Going out on a limb to make a difference

I had always wanted to work in the healthcare sector. After some research, I chanced upon an unusual profession that few have heard of: Prosthetist and Orthotist.

Starting out on the right foot

As a young ballerina, I was accustomed to the rigorous training regimen expected of me. Unfortunately, it took a toll on my foot.

The guiding light

The first time I crossed paths with a social worker was just after my A level examinations.

I don't just press buttons!

"Are you going to be a radio DJ (disc jockey)?" I get that a lot when I tell people my course of study.

Fighting COVID-19 looks like this: Sarah’s story

“As speech therapists, we deal with speaking, eating and drinking — known opportunities for respiratory droplets to transmit COVID-19 — every day.
 
During the initial stages of caring for COVID-19 patients, there was a sense of apprehension and worry as the situation was uncertain. However, despite the challenges, our team has been resilient and has calmly taken on all these changes in our stride. Knowing that we have each other’s back is what fuels me on.”

Fighting COVID-19 looks like this: Janet’s story

“In 2020, I was deployed to support migrant workers diagnosed with COVID-19. As a #medicalsocialworker providing psychosocial support, I met patients who expressed fear about their conditions and longing for their families during that difficult time. It was especially challenging due to the language barrier. Hence, we had to think of creative forms of intervention, such as painting to connect with them. That one year had enhanced our understanding and ways of working with patients.

During the recent outbreak, patients had to undergo multiple swabs, which can be uncomfortable and scary. Once, we managed to convince a patient who refused to go for swab tests by sharing our personal experiences and addressing her concerns. She eventually agreed to go through the tests, and was pleasantly surprised that the process was not as scary as she thought. We also liaised with her family and helped them to deliver their Mother’s Day greetings to her!

I am thankful that most people are supportive of the #healthcare workers. It is evident from the appreciative messages and encouragement on social media and goodwill gestures (food, drinks and cards) received from the community.

To my fellow healthcare colleagues part of this battle, you are all inspiring individuals. Do slow down, breathe and remember to take good care of yourself!”

– Janet Lim, Senior Medical Social Worker, @tantocksenghospital
