Celebrating the QEUH staff delivering patient care during COVID-19

Tuesday, February 2, 2021

 

Within the atrium of the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) we have a dedicated gallery which pays tribute to the many staff working across the hospital site to look after patients during this difficult time. Here, we've collated some of the images from the 'Caught in the act of Care' gallery alongside some of the quotes insight into what it's like to work at QEUH during the pandemic.

 

 

Kate Hill, aged 41, Acute Services Practice Development Nurse

“It is a really challenging and difficult situation for all staff in NHS, however, they have worked collaboratively to provide excellent care for patients.”

 

 

Graeme Condie, age 37, Travel Plan officer, Travel plan office

“Despite the additional pressures and workload during the pandemic, a real positive for our department has been the increase in appetite from a wide range of staff to move towards a more sustainable form of regular travel to their work.”

 

 

Anne Watson, Age 46, Specialist Physiotherapist, Orthopaedics and Emma Brough, Age 24, Physiotherapist

Anne Watson quoted: “Orthopaedic trauma hasn’t stopped due the pandemic, it’s been a really tough time but our team has worked extremely well together to support not only our patients but each other”

 

 

Scott Boardman, Domestic services, ward 11a,      

“I feel the patients are like a second family as I am the only visitor some get on daily basis due to no visitors in current climate. I have a lot of long term patients who I enjoy having a bit of banter to pass the time of day and to put a smile on their faces.”

 

 

Todman, Stephanie, Age 33, staff nurse, Theatre Recovery,

“As a Type 1 Diabetic and mum of two I am acutely aware of the risks associated with working during the pandemic. However, my colleagues and I put these concerns aside and continue to care for our patients during these scary and uncertain times. Our hope is that everyone will do their best to stay safe as we carry on doing our job.”

 

 

Rachael Matthews, 30,  Speech and Language Therapist,

“It’s been a challenging time but hopefully there’s light at the end of the tunnel now.  Keep following the rules as we want you to be able to visit your loved ones as soon as possible.”

 

 

Lucy Morgan 21, (Registered Nurse - Emergency Department).

“Nursing is selflessness, our patient is our priority through our intelligence and our experience”

 

 

Amy Wood, Staff Nurse, Orthopaedics (now moved to community)

“The uncertainty was difficult, especially at the start when everything changed so quickly. Everyone pulled together and supported each other though, which was great to be a part of.”
