What is your job title?

I’m a Nurse at Cendrawasih ward. It’s the surgical medical room. I’m the Deputy Nurse Supervisor.

At which Ramsay Sime Darby Health Care hospitals do you work?

I am with Rumah Sakit Premier Bintaro, Indonesia

For how long have you worked at RSPB?

I started on October 2002; it has been almost 18 years now.

What is your favourite thing about being a nurse?

When a patient in our care is discharged with a clean bill of health or when they walk out of the hospital happy, I feel a sense of achievement just looking at my patient’s expression of gratefulness. Especially when we follow up to check on their medical condition at home, they sound happy and highly appreciative of what we have done for them. Just hearing them saying Thank You is a great feeling.

What are you passionate about?

As a nurse, I have to play various roles in my line of work. I advocate for patients, consistently interact with their family members and friends. Training and debrief for family members are also required to enable them to play a leading role. Nurses are also required to discuss treatment plans with doctors as we spend more time with each patient and is able understand the needs of the patients better. Nursing is a self-less profession where we put the needs of our patients first before our own. My calling to become a Nurse is a result of a passionate desire to care for the sick and needy. I believe God will take notice and reward me for helping people.

What are your aspirations for the future?

I aspire to give the best care possible to each and everyone of my patients. I want to be able to foster strong relationship with my patients reassuring them that they have the best care needed at RSPB. My biggest hope is that we provide the highest level of care to our patients and in return they choose our hospital to be their preferred healthcare provider for all their health needs and for their family members. Our patients should be very happy with the quality of care received at RSPB that they become our global patient care ambassadors.
