    #𝘾𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙖𝙜𝙚𝙩𝙤𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙎𝙂: 𝙎𝙚𝙧𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙨𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙧𝙨 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙩

    In 2018, at the age of 60, Wendy Wong took a bold leap of faith to pursue a career in the community care sector at Bukit Batok Care Home. Two years on, she is part of the team fighting COVID-19 on the front line.

    Wendy was posted to Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home (LAM) to support the provision of geriatric care during the pandemic. It was truly one of the defining moments of her career as a Residential Care Associate.

      Nurse Manager Diong Nguk Sing from St Andrew's Community Hospital was drawn to nursing as a child, however her family’s financial circumstances and the lack of nursing educational opportunities led her to pursue a degree in social sciences instead. After graduating, she moved from her hometown in rural Malaysia to work in Singapore.

      While working at a biochemical company in Singapore, she heard about the Healthcare Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) for nurses — a two-year nursing programme offered by Workforce Singapore for mid-career switchers who wish to be nurses. Nguk Sing, who was 26 then, seized the opportunity and applied for it.

      Nguk Sing has come a long way. To her, nursing is not just a job, but a calling to care for patients with love and compassion. In her words, "Opportunities will come along, as long as you have the passion and will to persevere through."

        @alexandrahospitalsg Chief Nurse Margaret Lee found her calling after she made the decision to take up #nursing post O Levels. Nursing remains her first and only job.

She finds it a privilege to be in a position to care and is committed to upholding the highest standards of the profession at all times.

          We shine the spotlight on Senior Staff Nurse Chock Huay Ching from Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. To Huay Ching, the medium of photography is a powerful tool that captures more than what meets the eye. Here's what she has to say as part of the team of photographers for the nursing book:

          "I'm really grateful to be part of this book. There is so much captured in a single photograph — the emotions of a person, the stories they tell and the moments that stand still against the passing of time."

          A big THANK YOU to all nurses who participated in the production of the book! It's been an absolute joy and honour to work with these talented individuals. "Nursing — Our Profession, Our Pride" is a specially produced book that celebrates 135 years of nursing in Singapore. It shares a collection of stories about all things nursing and charts the growth of the profession since 1997. Click the link in our bio to download the e-copy of the book! 👆🏻

          P.S. Stay tuned for the next chapter of our nursing book features, where we focus on the ones who shared their stories with us and made this book a reality.

            During this pandemic, the paediatric ward that KK Women's and Children's Hospital Senior Staff Nurse Nur Asyiqin was working at was transformed into an isolation ward dedicated to caring for young COVID-19 patients, as well as their caregivers.
            ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
            The sudden chaos and changes of dealing with a viral infection would shake anyone, but SSN Asyiqin and her team hit the ground running, thanks to the rigorous preparations that were put into place ever since SARS in 2003.
            ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
            The notion of bringing the virus home to her family was a thought she couldn’t shake off — even with the strict protocols in place. Thankfully, her family and friends showered her with support and encouraged her to continue the fight. That was enough to help her barrel through all her anxieties and to make her job #1 priority.

              Ethan's decision to switch to #nursing was in the making since university, after he witnessed how the #nurses took great care of his grandmother in a nursing home. Unfortunately, his parents were against the idea at the time.
              ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
              Fast forward today, Ethan took a leap of faith to make a career switch and is now a Staff Nurse at @ren_ci_hospital who has been on the front line since the COVID-19 outbreak. Though it’s been a tough fight, Ethan has also received endless love and encouragement from his management team, patients, family and friends.
              ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
              As clichéd as it may sound, the biggest lesson he has taken away from this pandemic is that we should take nothing for granted and, as what Marie Kondo would say, to live a life that sparks joy.

                  "What an honour to join this project and work with other nurses! It was a memorable experience. My artwork for Chapter 4 shows that nursing is a journey. Every step you take and everything you see, be it success or failure, will be the milestone for a better tomorrow."

                  For Senior Staff Nurse Bibi Wong of Tan Tock Seng Hospital, who is part of the team of artists behind the collection of artworks in the nursing book, her illustration speaks volumes about what it truly means to be in the nursing profession — a fulfilling journey of progress and innovation with patient care in mind.

                  Drawings speak louder than words. Check out Bibi's artwork alongside seven other artists in this specially produced book that celebrates 135 years of nursing in Singapore: "Nursing - Our Profession, Our Pride".

                    For Senior Staff Nurse Suhaimi Kasmon of Singapore General Hospital, being a photographer in this project reminded him that a photo is more than just a picture. Armed with his Nikon D750, he had the unique chance of shadowing and capturing snapshots of a fellow nurse who works in a different setting. Here’s what he has to say:

                    “It was a rare opportunity to capture photos of a prison nurse in his element, to see the depth of meaning behind his every expression. It reminded me that every photo tells a story. Nursing and photography will remain my lifelong passions.”

                      Have you seen the wonderful artwork painted by Senior Nurse Educator Cheah Mee Wen from @sengkang_general_hospital in Chapter 2 of 'Nursing - Our Profession, Our Pride"? It illustrates beautifully how nurses constantly seek to improve patient care through education and technological advancements. It is truly art from the heart!
                       
                      "This project has renewed my interest in art. Juggling work and this art assignment was challenging, fun and de-stressing at the same time. I used acrylic paint to capture the theme of Chapter 2, books to signify education, progressing to the electronic pad, with caring from the heart."

                            Armed with her Canon 800D, Senior Staff Nurse Wong Yu Rui at National Heart Centre Singapore spent much of last year hustling about various healthcare institutions in Singapore, capturing moments to be immortalised in the nursing book. While she was excited to be able to play her part in this special project, she was doubly encouraged by the heartening words of her nursing seniors.

                            "It was my honour to contribute my little strength to this big project. I enjoyed working with the editorial team and even learnt some photography skills in the process. Also, it was very encouraging to have some of my super seniors in nursing encouraging me."

                              Despite these challenging times, there were occasional sweet moments with her patients that became her source of strength. She even stood in as an interim “hairdresser” for one resident who insisted on having her hair trimmed!

                                In Chapter 6 of "Nursing – Our Profession, Our Pride", we read of seven #nurses who championed change and pushed boundaries for better patient care. Inspired by their pioneering spirit, Yang Li Ping, Nurse Clinician at National Heart Centre Singapore, delved into the theme of exploration and drew the perfect illustration that represented these stories: Hot air balloons at the edge of our planet, ready to take off into the unknown.

                                  “Having been in nursing for over 40 years, I decided it was time to move into teaching and training. Many have the assumption that wound care is about using the best dressing or product — it is not! Assessing the wound and managing it through proper techniques, skills and knowledge are far more important. In class, I often focus on developing my trainees’ strengths instead of fixing their weaknesses during the hands-on sessions. Hopefully, this will help build their confidence in tending to patients’ wounds.
                                  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                  As a nurse, I used to teach in a clinical setting while being on the job. Now, I have the opportunity to teach in a classroom setting using simulations, case studies and discussions. Whether a nurse or an educator, my objective remains: I hope to see my trainees use their knowledge to make a difference in the lives of their patients and thereby improving their quality of life. In return, I have also learnt from students as I continue to upgrade my own skills as a trainer especially in areas of new technologies and using digital platforms to teach (laughs). To me, both vocations shape and impact lives, and play an equally important role in shaping the next generation of nurses.”

For Senior Staff Nurse Maria Boey of KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, being a photographer in this project was more than just having to capture pictures of #nurses in their environments – it was just as thrilling an experience as it was educational.

                                    “It was exciting to be part of this project, which has definitely expanded my photography skills. I appreciate Edmund (designer of the book) for being very patient and sharing different ideas and concepts. It gave me the chance to explore different photography angles, while retaining my own photography style.”

                                      “Believe it or not, I eagerly raised my hand when they called on mental health nurses to be deployed on the front line! As a newcomer to the profession, this opportunity was truly exciting.
                                      ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                      The nature of patients at the dormitories and their conditions differed from my work at the Institute of Mental Health, where I was mainly caring for patients with conditions such as schizophrenia. At the dormitories, I attended to migrant workers who were physically unwell. Some of them were also feeling anxious and depressed due to the situation, so I was able to apply my experience in performing mental state examinations while educating the affected workers on symptom management and medication matters.
                                      ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                      Like most of my comrades working in the dorms, the language barrier was one of the bigger obstacles. I took this chance to pick up basic Bengali and Thai… just simple words so that I can better communicate with migrant workers and ensure that their needs are taken care of. This experience showed me that, as nurses, we should be culturally sensitive at all times.
                                      ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                      Being a frontline worker has also taught me the 3Ts: Toughness, tenacity and triumph. They help you overcome adversities with grace, strength, critical thinking and to celebrate the small successes like discharging patients who have been cleared of COVID-19. Speaking of which, I will always remember how a discharged patient thanked me profusely with his hands in a prayer position.
                                      ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                      Behind the many layers of protective equipment are caring hearts that want the best for you. At times, some taxi drivers would understandably give me wary looks upon realising my drop-off location but there were also those who thanked me for keeping the nation safe and reminded me to look after my health. One of them even offered to buy me breakfast! Such gestures warm my heart and make me proud to be a nurse.”

Little did she know that she would be photographing some of them while working on commemorative nursing book.

                                        “Working on this book gave me the opportunity to interact with several nursing leaders. It is an honour indeed, and I am inspired by their candidates and professionalism despite their huge responsibilities at the workplace”

                                          When Ng Teng Fong General Hospital called for staff volunteers to join the fight against COVID-19, Jurong Medical Centre Senior Staff Nurse Qiu Hong had no qualms about it despite knowing the risks of being on the front line — she was not afraid. As a nurse, a sense of duty to serve has always been the driving force that kept her motivated at work every day.

The three interviewees I photographed reminded me that nurses can do more than just clinical work to contribute to patient care. I was also inspired by their passion for their nursing careers."

                                              Hands down, many will agree with Senior Staff Nurse Wang Jiaxin from @cghsg! Nurses do so much more in addition to clinical work - they are also involved in healthcare administration and nursing education. With her Sony A7II in hand, Jiaxin instantly transforms from a healthcare hero to a photographer for our newly launched nursing book - a gift dedicated to all nurses.

                                              Check out the photos taken by Jiaxin in this book, alongside those of 11 other nurses who took their passion for photography to another level.

                                                “I felt a mix of emotions – excitement and apprehension – when I learnt I would be on the front line of the nation’s battle against COVID-19. I was excited as this was a new learning opportunity! At the same time, I was worried, not just for myself but for my loved ones. I live with a big family, so concerns for their well-being weighed heavily on my mind.

                                                To protect my family, I practise good hygiene habits. As soon as I reach home, I wash up and place my uniform into the washing machine. Visiting my father, which was once a common routine, has been put on hold for the time being. Fortunately, my sisters have been very understanding during this period, and offered to help with some of the caregiving responsibilities.

                                                At work, things are drastically different. The polyclinic is now divided into two areas: The Green zone and the Red zone, which handles patients exhibiting any respiratory symptoms. Whenever we enter this zone, we wear additional protective gear. It can be uncomfortable but I have got used to it.

                                                My role as a Patient Care Assistant involves assisting patients with registration, taking their vital signs (e.g. blood pressure, height and weight) and helping doctors with translation during consultations. Although the job is risky, it never crossed my mind to give up.
                                                ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                                I recall an incident when an anxious lady walked into the polyclinic and insisted on getting tested, fearing that she caught the infection by a chance encounter with a COVID-19 patient. However, she was not exhibiting any symptoms. Sensing her concern, I reassured her and advised her to monitor her health at home for the time being. She subsequently calmed down and headed home.

                                                Learning, especially during a pandemic, may be challenging as we have to adapt and react swiftly. But there is always something new to learn, and that is what keeps me going.

It made me realise that there is more to photography than just taking pictures." Nuraidah recounts her experience participating in this special project.

                                                    Look out for the photos shot by Nuraidah and 11 other nurses in the book: "Nursing – Our Profession, Our Pride".

                                                      For those over at Changi General Hospital, you may have seen Senior Staff Nurse Charly Tronco carrying his precious Nikon D750 camera before or after his shifts. That's because he was part of the team involved in taking photographs of the nurses featured in this book. Here’s what Charly had to say about his time on set:

                                                      “Although I was hesitant at first, I am really thankful to be part of this project. It wasn’t really difficult to convey the nurses’ stories and emotions through my photos – they were all just so natural and real in their comfort zones!”
                                                       
                                                      Check out the photos taken by Charly and 11 other photographers in this specially produced book to celebrate 135 years of nursing in Singapore: “Nursing – Our Profession, Our Pride”. It shares a collection of stories about all things nursing and charts the growth of the profession since 1997.

                                                        “As a junior doctor tasked to establish a medical post at a foreign worker dormitory, I felt excited but slightly overwhelmed. I had to lead a team of volunteers from different departments, none of whom had worked together before. This was made even more challenging by the need to wear the full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) under the hot sun.

                                                        Exposure to patients with COVID-19 was never a major concern for me – I see this as an extension of my usual duty. My parents were also very supportive, even if they were secretly worried for my well-being. When I developed a sore throat and had to be tested, I struggled with the decision to inform my parents as I did not want them to worry. However, I eventually told them as I needed to self-isolate to reduce the risk of transmission. They took the news calmly and arranged for the necessities I would require while self-isolating. There was a palpable sense of relief when the test results came out negative.

                                                        The complex stakeholder landscape at the dormitory means a great deal of coordination is required. Also, the language barrier can occasionally leave the foreign workers confused and anxious. Hence, we take time to provide them with as much assurance as possible. There are stories behind each of these patients that we see every day. My most memorable interaction was with an 18-year-old Bangladeshi man who had just arrived in Singapore a few months ago. As he had been exposed to a COVID-19 patient, he needed a swab test. He was so anxious, his heart rate was racing and he couldn’t speak properly. Fortunately, one of our team members managed to calm him down and he was very grateful to us.

                                                        The work in the dormitory has opened my eyes to what I can do as a junior doctor. Although everyone in my team started out as strangers, we are now in the “performing stage” where it is a joy to solve problems together. Knowing that our work makes a difference to the nation gives us a sense of purpose.”

                                                        – Dr Wu Hong King, Clinical Services, Changi General Hospital

                                                          Nurse Clinician Huang Liwen has been with SGH since she graduated as a Registered Nurse in 2004. During the course of her 16 years as a nurse, she has worked in both surgical and medical wards.

                                                          Liwen’s greatest joy at work is seeing her patients recover and discharge home. Currently working in a surgical ward, she hardly sees her ward patients again after they leave. So it brings her great joy when they come back bearing gifts, like one of her ex-patients who has been visiting her and her nurses in the ward every Christmas and New Year’s Day for the past 15 years to show her gratitude. She also shares her joy at meeting breast cancer survivors who joined support groups to share their experiences with current patients in her ward.

                                                          Aside from her regular work in the surgical ward, Liwen is an active volunteer and has been on many medical missions to share her knowledge on nursing management with overseas hospitals and medical centres in China, Cambodia and Myanmar. She is also a regular SGH Breast Cancer Nurse volunteer, often working with breast cancer survivor volunteers to conduct health screenings, spread awareness and share their experiences with the community.

                                                          Since 2013 until now and to be continued.

                                                          Principal Enrolled Nurse Normuliana Bte Abu Hassan has a deep empathy and compassion for the elderly. Despite facing language barriers when speaking to some of them, she takes great care of patients with more actions than words. She took the initiative to learn Mandarin phrases to better communicate with her Mandarin-speaking patients, and is now able to have simple conversations with them.

                                                          “I am not very proficient in Mandarin, but I try to care for them as I would for my loved ones. When the elderly patients hold my hand and say ‘thank you’, I truly feel that my love and care for them can be delivered beyond words.”

                                                          Normuliana also regularly commits her time to support various SGH voluntary initiatives such as cleaning the homes of residents living in rental flats near the Hospital.

                                                          “This assignment allowed me to meet some of my amazing fellow nurses. Hearing what they have achieved is inspirational. It may have taken a while to get them to smile and be comfortable in front of the camera, but it has been a rewarding experience.”

                                                            Nurse Clinician Mabel Chia has been working in SGH since 1986. She constantly displays dedication and the level of commitment expected of a leader, being calm and professional when dealing with patients and colleagues even in the most difficult and challenging situations.
                                                            Mabel vividly recalls meeting a young patient in 2018 with a history of schizophrenia who was diagnosed with leukaemia. The patient was strong willed, and often refused treatments. As a result, his elderly parents felt helpless and was burnt out. Through Mabel’s patience and encouragement, she managed to establish trust with the patient and got him to undergo treatment eventually. His parents were really grateful for Mabel’s help in supporting their child during his prolonged hopitalisation.
                                                            Mabel also regularly gives back to society and at her free time, volunteers by spring cleanings of rental flats for the elderly, packing groceries for needy residents, and cooking lunch for residents at welfare home. She never hesitated to extend her compassion to people in need. With a hobby in handicrafts, Mabel often makes little gifts for her patients in her ward on festive occasions, and for the beneficiaries where she volunteers, to keep their spirits up. Her colleagues are not forgotten too. She once made personalised notebooks for every staff in her ward to express her appreciation. With a caring and approachable nature, Mabel is well-loved by her patients and colleagues.

                                                            Nurse Clinician Lu Ruli has been with SGH for 15 years. Studious and hardworking, she managed to balance pursuing a Post-Graduate Advanced Diploma in Peri-anaesthesia at Nanyang Polytechnic in 2012, while also being a mom to a 2-year-old daughter at home. She would travel from her home in Boon Lay to study in the school library almost every morning before 7am, and spend time with her daughter when she returned from school. Ruli eventually graduated at the top of her cohort.

                                                            Ruli is equally dedicated and capable at work as a Nursing Supervisor at SGH’s Anaesthesia Unit in Major Operating Theatre while performing three rotating shifts. Ruli believes that she has to be stronger and more resilient than her nurses and patients, to serve as a role model and evoke their confidence in her.

                                                            After a six-week simulation training in New York, Ruli worked with anaesthetists and surgeons to conduct monthly multidisciplinary training workshops for healthcare professionals in SGH. The workshops have helped improve emergency responses workflow, and inspired the development of a crisis management flip chart in each operating room, so that critical situations can be managed more effectively and efficiently in the perioperative environment.

                                                              Esther is passionate about research and transforming future nursing practice that improves patient care with technology and innovation. In the current COVID-19 climate, she was instrumental in the introduction of wearable devices that monitor patients’ vitals to help minimise clinical staff contact with the patient, thus reducing their risk of unnecessary exposure to infection. The devices are currently in use at the newly built [email protected] at SGH.

                                                              She is also professional and resourceful in leading and engaging nurses and industry partners. For the pilot of bedside tablets in the isolation wards, she not only took charge of training nurses on the use of the tablets, but also coordinated with external vendor to facilitate the integration process involving electronic medical records.

                                                              Esther embraces and initiates change, and believes that teamwork is crucial. With proficiency and experience in the innovation and transformation field, Esther was nominated as the Chairperson of the Nursing Innovation Council at SGH since 2017 to spearhead hospital-wide projects and research studies.

                                                                Nurse Clinician Wu Sin Yan’s journey to becoming a dialysis nurse in SGH began back home in Hong Kong where she attained a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Nursing in 1992. A year later, she moved to Singapore and had worked at other hospitals before joining SGH in 2006.

                                                                As an experienced nursing leader, Sin Yan is a strong proponent of junior nurses moving to different departments to learn more skills and widen their knowledge. She believes that the exposure is important and nurses will benefit greatly from diversifying their skill sets.

                                                                Being an experienced renal nursing leader, Sin Yan displays great compassion to all her patients. When one of her patients was diagnosed with cancer, Sin Yan devoted her personal time out of work to provided additional counselling, comfort, and nursing care to the patient, as well as support to the patient’s family. Both the patient and his family were really grateful for her kind dedication.

                                                                ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                                                “The COVID-19 pandemic has been a scary time for our nursing home. When @leeahmooioldagehome confirmed its first infection on 31 March 2020, my colleagues and I were very anxious. To be honest, there were times when I even wanted to give up as the scrutiny from Singaporeans was overwhelming. What kept me going was the continuous encouragement from my colleagues and motivational messages from our boss. They displaced my worries and gave me hope that we would eventually see the light at the end of the tunnel. In addition, this was when our residents needed our care the most. We had to be strong for them.
                                                                ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                                                To protect ourselves, we stuck to four rules set by our management: Practise hand hygiene, ensure safe distancing, cease gatherings in close proximity and keep our work area clean. In order to keep staff and residents safe, all staff also had to be in full Personal Protective Equipment. This gets tough in the afternoons when the weather is hot. Most residents do not recognise us behind the surgical masks and isolation gowns. However, it’s all worth it when I see the residents’ faces light up when they realise it is me.
                                                                ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                                                An unfortunate repercussion from the outbreak was that some of my colleagues were actually chased out from their homes. Despite facing discrimination from their landlords and the public, these colleagues gave their all for the residents and continued to work at the nursing home. Thankfully, a lodging company, Ascott, stepped in to provide us with shelter during this difficult time. As for me, I was worried about catching the virus and spreading it to my family members. Now that we are staying at our designated accommodation, it gives me peace of mind that I will not be putting my family at risk of infection.
                                                                ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
                                                                It has been mentally and physically straining for all of us so far, but I know that as one Lee Ah Mooi family, we will persevere and beat COVID-19 together.”

                                                                  Nurse Clinician Lissa Vazhayil Joseph remembers caring for a patient who had always refused to feed himself at meal times, when she was just a student nurse. Not wanting the patient to go hungry, she took the initiative to feed him and saw tears running down his cheeks. It made Lissa realised the impact that her actions may have on patients, and told herself to always do her best to care for patients.

                                                                  Lissa joined SGH after graduating with a Diploma in Nursing in 2004. 10 year later, she was among the first batch of Resident Nurses at SGH chosen to pursue a Master of Nursing degree. Lissa is now a lead trainer of the Health Assessment Course for Registered Nurses, as well as a trainer and mentor of various programmes for junior nurses, medical students and nursing undergraduates.

                                                                  Outside of work, Lissa is an active member of the amputee support group. To promote wellness amongst the amputees, she helps organise social outings for both the amputees and their caregivers, and promotes camaraderie among them for group support.
