CALLING ALL SUPER HEROES!!
Drew Dwyer I’ve read your article and am up for the challenge. I totally agree with you that there is greater good in the world than those who have supported neglect. However neglect and burnout go hand in hand when good people are placed in positions where they are hired for their expertise and their care and then underpaid, under resourced and here we are in an untenable place.
How can we turn this around?
SUPER HERO PARTNERSHIPS
Yesterday I participated the NHMRC Partnership Centre for Health System Sustainability Treatment Overload Think Tank. What was overwhelmingly obvious is that through advocacy and understanding of all stakeholder roles mutually successful partnerships can be achieved with those we care for as the happy beneficiary of that partnership.
What is required now is COURAGE to say we ARE stronger together in addressing the untenable findings of the Royal Commission.
Solutions lie in our hands and all the necessary resources are in front of us they just need to be utilised. I have the key to unlocking value and am here to help.
“Jackie (Regal Nurse) gives you a feeling of security. She knows what she is doing, she lets you know when she is coming next time”
“The Regal Nurse would make sure I was dry – even between my toes.”
“The Occupational Therapist in the hospital defined all the in home care we had to have – one of the Nurses recommended Regal and said they provided 7 day care. I got in touch and we went from there”
“If I lost him (the Regal Nurse) I’d feel bereft. It’s almost like when you are a soldier, you have that mentality of a band of brothers”
“Herb (Regal Nurse) is very caring.”
“I could not fault the service. All the nurses were pleasant and very efficient. All the staff were very obliging and attentive”
“I found the nurses to be very helpful and caring”
“I am very happy with the treatment I have received from the Regal Community Nurses”
“In the environment in which you are delivering services to the community, the ideas of others I thought were enlightening and I felt that you showed a keen awareness to listen and learn.”
“Your staff were efficient, courteous and knowledgeable. This was a great service enabling me a limited stay in hospital. Grateful to use your service twice this year – I am so glad I only have two knees! Thank You”
“As the grand-daughter of a soldier who served In both World Wars I and II, I feel privileged to lead a home health service that cares for so many whose lives have been impacted by war”
“At all times Regal Health Services has displayed excellent interaction with the patients. We always find the staff display the highest professional integrity”
“Regal believes in quality and is prepared to be publicly scrutinized to attest to this quality in process and performance”
“I am a 91-year-old ex-serviceman and have been receiving help from Regal Health Services for some considerable time and I can’t speak highly enough of the health benefits I have received from them. My Nurse has helped me recover from numerous accidental falls on discharge from a hospital. Her happy disposition and general demeanor has a psychological healing effect in itself”
“I had three uncles who served in World War II who shared with me their many experiences of war and wisdom passed down through generations. I am grateful for the many sacrifices our war veterans have made that allow us our freedom today”
“Regal have been market leaders for 2 generations in promoting consumer empowerment and registered nurse led professional care in community health. Their commitment to measurable quality outcomes and sheared decision making promoting innovative models of care is outstanding. I can only wish them success as the real winners are the recipients of care in their homes.”
