In honour of International Year of Nurses and Midwives, and to celebrate Nurses Day, GOG decided to mark this occasion during unprecedented times, with a special project.
The idea was to create an individual hand-stitched flower 🌺brooch to be presented to each nurse within ICU and infection control, to show our support and heartfelt gratitude for these selfless and hardworking members of our community.
Last week, Mary and Amanda were thrilled to be able to make the presentation to the ACT Chief Nurse, Denise Patterson, the Critical Care executive team including Executive Director, Lisa Gilmore, Assistant Director of Nursing, Gillian, Dr Bron, Dr Manoj, Genevieve and their wonderful team of nurses in the ICU.
The joy on the face of each nurse after choosing their special flower, was as they say ‘priceless’. Thank you to Kathleen for her support in this and to all the Goodeze who were eager to participate, and who managed to keep our little secret, despite so many of these ‘heroes’ being part of our GOG community on Facebook! 😊💖
