Congratulations to Sophie! Our nurse of the week
Following some fantastic feedback from a patient she cared for recently in a London Hospital, Thornbury Nurse Sophie was commended by the client.
“Some people fit their jobs perfectly and have a natural affinity for their profession, which makes them perfect in their role. Sophie is such a person: she is attentive, clearly spoken with intelligent information pitched perfectly to each patient. Sophie treats patients with kindness and care without being condescending to anyone. In short, Sophie has a bedside manner others should observe and learn from, with the knowledge of field and clinical excellence to make someone I consider to be the best nurse in this hospital.”
We caught up with Sophie to find out how she feels being our Nurse of the Week:
TNS: How long have you been working in healthcare?
Sophie: 2018 marks the 5th year since I graduated as a nurse however, I did practice as a HCA in a Nursing Home before I did my training.
TNS: What do you enjoy most about your job?
Sophie: I enjoy connecting with people and making them feel safe and confident in the care we provide to them. Making people laugh and putting them at ease makes everyone’s day better.
TNS: What attracted you to join Thornbury?
Sophie: I wanted maximum flexibility at a time in my life when I really needed it. Plus, Thornbury have a great reputation which made them my first choice.
TNS: How do you feel about being our Nurse of the Week?
Sophie: Nursing can be a really tough and trying job at times, so getting recognised for your efforts makes it even more worthwhile.
Congratulations once again Sophie.
