The Manor House Nurses Awards 2023 was a great success last week. It was well attended by staff, residents and relatives, showing how important the nursing staff are to everyone.
The Activities Team made a huge effort, with The Hub being beautifully decorated and the buffet tasting amazing. All the small touches made the event extra special!
The Director of Nursing, Jayne Wood, presented the awards and expressed her gratitude to all staff and nurses. Everyone at the Manor House helps make it the great care home it is; we are very thankful for that. Jayne said, “The nurses work really hard; they are fantastic and deserve recognition for their wonderful work”.
We had a fantastic response when we asked staff, residents and relatives to vote for who they felt deserved to receive the Nurses Award. Thank you for taking the time to do this; the comments were lovely and heartfelt.
Our 3rd place winner was Seth. Several people commented on Seth being amazing with the residents on Coppenhall, showing great patience and always being willing to assist the care staff. Emmanuel received 2nd place, with him being described as “always really nice and supportive”.
The overall winner was Bertha, with many commenting on her professionalism and compassion. One lovely comment written about Bertha was, “Very compassionate, caring and understanding. A very good listener, professional. Just fabulous all round”. Another comment, “The time she takes, the care she shows, her professionalism and standards are second to none”, shows just how well thought of Bertha is.
Bertha looked visibly moved to receive a beautiful star trophy for the accolade. Seth and Emmanuel both were presented with a medal, champagne and a gift. Sarah and Diane also received recognition for their work, receiving a wonderful hamper of chocolates. All nurses were given a goodie bag and a beautiful keyring inscribed, “May you be proud of the work you do, the person you are and the difference you make”.
Additional recognition was given to Jemima Oduro. Jemima was our first-ever sponsored nurse and is now a fully qualified nurse.
Jayne added, “we are so proud of every single member of our team, they work together to support each other and provide the best possible care for our residents.”
