Charlie, the support you give on the ward is amazing. You always have a helpful hand and guide everyone around you. Your knowledge base is outstanding, and you always have time to teach that knowledge to others. Nightshifts are a strange shift to work, its all or nothing, yet you handle every shift with such ease, and some of them are testing as I’ve been there with you. Whenever you are the nurse in charge, you do it so effortlessly, ensuring patient safety and care, making sure everyone takes rest breaks and is able to fulfil their role to the highest standards. I’ve seen first-hand the complex situations you’ve dealt with and how you’ve handled communications with MDTs and advocated for patients, it’s a real challenge, especially on nightshifts, but you always blow it out the park.
You have such a calming nature about you and a kind-hearted approach to almost every situation. You are an inspiration.
