Year of the Nurse and Midwife - Another August Feature

17th August 2020

We have so many amazing nurses and midwives at St George’s Trust, that this month we have another incredible St George’s nurse to shout about in our Year of the Nurse and Midwife series. Rommel Pengson is a Senior Staff Nurse on Brodie Ward and we asked him a few questions about his time at St George’s so far.

How long have you been at St George’s Hospital (SGH) and what do you love about it?

I have been connected to SGH for over a year and a half now. I love the support that was given to me by my colleagues and my superiors in the ward.

What does nursing/midwifery mean to you?

I have been a nurse for more than 14 years now and nursing is not just a job for me but also an expression of my love to serve people. I love caring for the sick and with nursing, I can be just me.

How has Covid-19 affected your role?

I was directly affected by COVID-19 because I looked after COVID-19 positive patients. Our daily routine was affected as well. Our interactions with our patient's relatives became limited which can be frustrating to both our patients and their loved ones. Now more than ever, we received loads of phone calls which can consume some of our time which reduces the time that we can spend at the bedside looking after our patients.

How has St George's Hospital Charity had an impact on your role?

I want to thank the SGH Charity for their support to Brodie Ward especially when we were still looking after COVID 19 patients. We received a lot of food from the charity and some consumable items as well. They have eased our burden by providing food while we are at work.

 

Thank you so much for being a great part of Team St George’s Rommel!
