Hospital Heroes

The epitome of good nursing - that’s Lorraine Sayadi, our hospital hero for March

Lorraine, deputy manager for Westcliff ward, was nominated for constantly personifying our Trust values - long before they were written down.

She's worked here for more than 30 years and has constantly striven for the highest nursing standards. She has, states her nomination, 'an overriding desire to ensure that excellent student nurse teaching takes place to allow for the future development of the nursing profession'

Lorraine has been known to call in on her days off or during the night when one of her patients has been going through a difficult situation, providing support and counselling to them and her team. And she has been a key player in the Westcliff ward pilot to eradicate avoidable pressure ulcers - now being rolled out on wards across the Trust.
