This lady has been a nurse for 60 years. Yes, you read that right – 60 years! She is now 76, and still working in a hospital treating and supporting patients. This lady is truly inspirational – how wonderful not just to be active at 76, but able to work and even teach other staff new technologies she herself has had to learn.
I quote from the Daily Mail: (Click!)
“Susan Field, head of nursing at Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust, who has been a nurse herself for more than 30 years, described Mrs Turner as an inspiration.
She said: ‘She is absolutely amazing. Her experience and ability to assess patients and provide care is incredible.
‘The younger nurses are truly gobsmacked by it all. Her experience and expertise really does rub off.’
The hospital matron, Linda Edwards, added: ‘I think it’s absolutely fantastic what she has managed to achieve over the years.
‘She’s really very caring, compassionate and hard-working, and she adapted to new technology so well that she is teaching other staff.
‘She’s very much part of the team.'”
While there is a lot more to life than work, it’s wonderful to see someone so active and productive right into their seventies.
