Congratulations to our very own Susan Lee for winning the 2019 Registered Nurse of the Year Award.

Susan spoke about the fantastic care team supporting her in providing person-centred care.

Susan previously worked as a CNM in The Mater Hospital in a busy AMSSU after completing her Nursing studies in Kingston University in 2002 with Distinction, she then completed an AMP in acute medicine with honors. She moved roles to ADON in Hamilton Park Care Facility in 2016 into the busy Acquired Brain Injury Unit where she works tirelessly to ensure her residents get the full entitlements and benefits they so richly deserve.

Susan developed the Care Mapping system to keep the disability services up to-speed on the Resident's care. She consistently gives up her free time to ensure her Residents get to fulfill their life goals. Susan is also the Complaints Officer and Infection Control Officer of Hamilton Park Care Facility.
