March's Hospital Hero - Lorraine Sayadi
21 March 2013
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
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.
