The Medical Orderlies and Hospital Administration Departments recognised and rewarded SWRHA’s Medical Orderlies with a Week of Activities from August 19th to 23rd, 2019. The Week commenced with Medical Orderlies congregating at the Nurses’ Lounge San Fernando General Hospital, for a Thanksgiving Service. The Orderlies showcased their daily responsibilities and moving techniques by re-enacting various scenarios involving a trauma patient and a patient with a seizure. The development of Medical orderlies was also highlighted with a photo display in the San Fernando General Hospital’s Foyer featuring photographs of the Colonial Hospital and the present Medical Orderlies Department.
Activities culminated on August 23rd with a prize-giving ceremony at Nurses Lounge. The Ceremony entailed the presentation of prizes to Medical Orderlies on respective shifts or areas which performed exceptionally well for Attendance, Punctuality, Uniformity, Customer Service and Time Management. The first-place prize was awarded to Mr. Donald Murray and Medical Orderly team from Diagnostics. Mr. Nazir Mohammed and his shift and Ms. Margaret Springer and her team from the Emergency Department and Environs placed second and third, respectively. A prize was also awarded to Mr. Shaquille George for Most Improved Employee.
