Nurse shares the demands of working in the maternity ward
Qualified nurse Sr Fikile Tsekiso from KZN has worked both in private and public healthcare facilities. She spoke to Briefly News about the reality of being a healthcare provider and the demands that come with the job.
"Being a maternity nurse in a public hospital is a demanding yet rewarding experience. It is not just a job, it is a calling.
"Due to resource limitations and high patient volumes, nurses often face challenges in providing optimal care, especially in public hospitals.
However, their dedication and passion for helping mothers and babies during childbirth and postpartum period make a significant difference in countless lives," Sr Tsekiso said.
She added that nurses build strong bonds with patients and their families, offering emotional support and guidance during a vulnerable time. So to be appreciated by a patient such as in the video, is one of those very special experiences that come with the calling.
