Kuala Lumpur, June 2017 – Nurses play an integral part in a patient’s recovery.

They are often the unsung heroes in a healthcare setting.

Celebrating their sacrifices and hard work is done courtesy of the Annual International Nurses Day and healthcare organisations like KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital (KPJDSH) recently did just that.

In honouring their efforts, the hospital has prominently included them in celebrations by hosting a dinner for them at the Mont Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort recently.

It was also held in conjunction with the International Nurses Day that fell on May 12.

The night was one of the hospital’s pivotal events involving the nursing team.

The other event was a Nursing Symposium, which was held in April.

Top level management and resident consultants led the way in showing the hospital’s appreciation for the nurses, including male nurses during the Nurses Day celebrations on May 13.

Most of the nurses at KPJDSH are long-serving with some of them having worked at the hospital for up to 20 years.

Besides colourful performances, awards were also given out to the nurses, for the best dressed as well as Male and Female Nightingales.

KPJDSH Chief Executive Officer Fawziah Muhammad says nurses are the most patient type of people.

“You still need to smile after so many challenges in the day so I believe not everybody can be a nurse,” she said.

Nurses at KPJ Damansara are recognised for their clinical distinction, as well as hands-on skill in providing their best service value to patients/customers.

This is further complemented and supported by a strong team of experts comprising of Medical Consultants, Senior Nurses, Allied Health professionals and trained Clinical Instructors.
