JOHOR BARU: In conjunction with International Nurses’ Day, Regency Specialist Hospital (RSH) organised a nursing seminar titled “Hands that treat, Hearts that heal” at Renaissance Hotel, Johor Baru here.
The seminar was aimed to share knowledge and best practices with more than 200 nurses from more than 10 different public and private hospitals.
Regency Specialist Hospital chief executive officer Serena Yong said the hospital gives priority to manpower development.
“Nurses play a vital role in the sustainability of a hospital as they connect all the people, from patients, patients’ families, doctors and other hospital staff, in administering care for the best possible outcome.
“They support both the emotional and physical needs of the patient.
“These eyes have seen pain, these hands have treated wounds and these hearts have healed internal pain.
“The nurses play an indispensable role in clinical care and hospital operations that warrant attention and appreciation,” she said.
The seminar featured 10 local and regional speakers who are experts in their respective fields.
With positive feedback from those who attended, Yong said that they will be organising more such events in the future.
“Sharing of knowledge and best practices is important as a form of upskilling and continuing professional development in nursing and healthcare.
“As a patient-centred organisation that values the delivery of exceptional care, we are compelled to do our part in sharing knowledge and expertise so that together we can raise the standard of nursing care,” she said.Nurses play a vital role in the sustainability of a hospital as they connect all the people, from patients, patients’ families, doctors and other hospital staff, in administering care for the best possible outcome
