ICU shortlisted for national award

April 29, 2016

Armadale Health Service’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) has been named a finalist in the Team Excellence category of this year’s HESTA National Nursing Awards.

ICU Nurse Manager Denver Prince said the team was nominated for developing a hospital-wide initiative, in collaboration with the theatre team and DonateLife WA, to undertake on-site organ retrieval operations.

“This included developing policies, procedures and staff education that has resulted in positive outcomes for the donors’ grieving family and the organ recipients and their families,” Denver said.

“Being named as a finalist is wonderful recognition of the dedication and commitment to patient care shown by the team.”

Winners will be announced on International Nurses Day – 12 May 2016.
