That incident inspired her to make the crucial decision of taking up wound care as her speciality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀In April this year, she took her passion for wound care further by imparting her knowledge on wound care to her trainees at SLEC. Here’s what the Master Trainer of wound care has to say:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀“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.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀To read more of Susie’s vision for wound care, click the link in our bio for the e-book “Nursing – Our Profession, Our Pride” which celebrates 135 years of nursing in Singapore through a collection of stories about all things nursing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#caretogobeyond

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. #NursesMeritAwards2020 #Perseverance #sghseen #singapore #healthcareheroes #caretogobeyond #ichoosetobeanurse #happinurse #becauseiamanurse
Principal Enrolled Nurse Normuliana Bte Abu Hassan has a deep empathy and compassion for the elderly.

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.#NursesMeritAwards2020 #Perseverance #sghseen #singapore #healthcareheroes #caretogobeyond #ichoosetobeanurse #happinurse #becauseiamanurse

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.

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.” – Rae Wong Su Min, Staff Nurse, Institute of Mental Health⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#couragetocaresg #caretogobeyond

An intricate composition of #nurses providing care to their patients, the artwork illustrates the many aspects of #nursing in the community – some of which include the community hospital, polyclinic and nursing home. The artist behind the art piece, KK Women's and Children's Hospital Staff Nurse Ma Isabelle Kagawan Manlapig, shares her thoughts on working on the commemorative book for nurses.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀"For someone who has always worked in the hospital setting, it was enlightening to see the profession from a different perspective. My inspiration for Chapter 7's artwork is the multi-faceted nature of community nursing, which is colourful in its diversity and uniqueness."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Check out Isabelle's art in the commemorative book specially produced to celebrate 135 years of nursing in Singapore: “Nursing – Our Profession, Our Pride”.

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.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀– Karen Teo, Patient Care Assistant, Choa Chu Kang Polyclinic⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#couragetocaresg #caretogobeyond

𝙁𝙖𝙘𝙚𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙣𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙚𝙙𝙪𝙘𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙨: 𝘼 𝙏𝙚𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙚𝙧’𝙨 𝘿𝙖𝙮 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙞𝙖𝙡 Rachael Goh had her first brush with nursing at a critical point for most 16-year-olds in Singapore — post-secondary school, when she had to choose her education route. She witnessed first-hand how nurses had cared for her grandmother in the hospital. It could have been their selflessness, perhaps even compassion, that drew young Rachael to the profession. Driven by a strong desire to care for others, Rachael pursued a diploma in nursing from Nanyang Polytechnic after bagging five As in her O level examination the following year. She eventually graduated and joined the healthcare family as a staff nurse in 2002. Today, she channels the same passion for nursing into her role as a nursing lecturer at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) College East. “I came from the Normal Technical stream in secondary school but it did not stop me from wanting to do better. In fact, I worked even harder to achieve a spot in the Normal Academic stream and eventually, the Express stream. My own academic journey heavily influenced my decision to teach the nursing course here; I can relate to majority of the students who were N level students. Apart from wanting to impart my nursing knowledge and skills, I wanted to inculcate values and to inspire these future nurses. My biggest takeaway as a nursing educator these last 10 years is that every student is special — I must embrace their unique individuality, hear them out and allow them to freely express themselves. These were the same values that were taught to me by my own mentor, Mrs Mae Tang, nursing course manager at the ITE College East. Mrs Tang had groomed me to the teacher I am today. She was not just a mentor to me but a teammate, friend and a role model. For her wisdom, attention to details and commitment, she was one of the finalists of the President’s Award for Teachers in 2019!” Rachael might not be in the hospital grounds as often as before but we are sure she still touches lives every day in the campus. To all nursing lecturers who have been nothing short of amazing, Happy Teacher’s Day!

For Nanyang Polytechnic lecturer Faridah Fadilah, her first batch of students from the Advanced Diploma in Gerontology and Specialist Diploma in Gerontology holds a special place in her heart. Faridah is often inspired by their tenacity, after witnessing how many of them persevered through their studies despite facing medical issues and challenges of their own. Not only have her students learnt a new skill from her, she has also taken away valuable lessons from them through their diverse capabilities and experiences. Students may first see her as a strict and fierce lecturer, but soon discover her good-humoured and friendly nature.A lecturer in the School of Health and Social Sciences, Faridah embodies outstanding traits both as a teacher and a nursing professional. On top of that, she's an amazing photographer! With her Sony a6000 in hand, Faridah has helped the commemorative book for our nursing family come to life. Here's what she has to say about this special journey:"I feel honoured to have participated in this project which is a gift to my fellow nursing comrades. Many of the nurses I photographed have a wealth of knowledge and experiences. They are all truly inspirational."Check out Faridah's work in the book!

Today marks the last day of dormitory medical post duty.May Allah s.w.t ease our journey and bless us.#happinurse #caretogobeyond #proudtobeanurse #murselife #murse #nursingrocks
#𝘾𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙖𝙜𝙚𝙩𝙤𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙎𝙂: 𝘼 𝙙𝙤𝙘𝙩𝙤𝙧’𝙨 𝙧𝙚𝙛𝙡𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙙𝙤𝙧𝙢𝙞𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨“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#caretogobeyond #couragetocaresg
