2022 Nurse of the Year
The Rotary Club of Karrinyup Nurse of the Year Award was created in 1990 to honour outstanding nurses working at the Osborne Park Hospital. This annual perpetual Award recognises a nurse (or midwife) whose daily dedication and care epitomises the highest standard of quality and personal commitment. Osborne Park Hospital has a number of wards catering for surgical, rehabilitation, midwifery and aged care and there are approximately 270 nurses and midwives working at the hospital. Nominations for the Award may be made by nurses, patients, doctors and hospital management staff.
Selection criterion is as follows:
- Excellence in Clinical Practice
- Empathy with Patients and Relatives
- Promotion of the Profession
- Ability to Work in a Collegiate Relationship with Health Care Team.
This Award, which is displayed proudly on the wall at Osborne Park Hospital, is highly regarded by the staff and promoted extensively by the Hospital.
This year's winner Keren Smith is the 34th recipient. Keren is a Manager in Patient Flow and is well known and respected across OPH and SCGH. She is outstanding in her clinical practice and her interpersonal skills and her nominations support this, commending her for suitability for the Nurse of the Year Award.
The RC Karrinyup members offer our sincere congratulations to our 2022 Osborne Park Hospital Nurse of the Year – Keren Smith.
