Nominated for The Debbie Eadie Award for Advance Nurse Practice
Works at University Hospitals Plymouth
When Ash is allocated to Paeds ED, the children receive excellent care and this care is delivered without delay. Ash is confident in her diagnosis and plans and the families are always involved in the decisions. She works well with the nursing team and is a real asset to the team. She will come to Paeds ED even if she is not allocated to the area if she has spare time to see another patient. She is able and willing to help all the trainee ACPs and she allows them to learn fully on the job.
Ash is always very enthusiastic about work and her passion to provide the best care inspires me. She is always wanting to help staff enhance their knowledge and is always happy to teach. Ash is very good with children and their families and the way she works with children is amazing, ash you will be very missed in derriford!
Ash is by far one of the best members of our A&E team , she not only cares deeply for the children she sees but also for the team around her . I’ve sat and listened to many examinations ash has performed and the kids love her she makes their journey in the department much easier and more joyous , I always hear belly laughs coming from her room and parents are noticeably more relaxed ( my favourite part normally being when she roars loud enough for the whole of paeds to hear so the children will copy and open their mouth for exams ) not only does that make the parents laugh we get a laugh from it too!
She’s so dedicated and can never do enough for us , ash has a way of making us all feel so important and cared for and not to mention she makes us all a better nursing team with her knowledge base ! We have been so lucky to have her as part of our team and when she leaves it will be a great loss !
For being a light in the dark, for always bringing humor to Paediatric ED and her dedication to teaching and helping other nurses to get to their full potential.
