Khoo Teck Puat Hospital
Q. We see that you work within Acute & Emergency Care Operations, when was the first time you had to be resourceful in responding to patient situations?
Being in A&E Operations mandates that we have to be resourceful every single day, with no two days being exactly the same. In my time here at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, I’ve had to learn how to deal with individuals who suffer from alcoholism, suicidal tendencies, depression, and in some cases, even handling situations where younger adults want to abandon their parents.
Q. Is there a first time that you helped implement something innovative in the workplace?
Personally, one of the first times I had implemented change in the workplace was when I was working on a project related to treating patients who experienced chest pains, helping create an integrated solution for medium risk patients to be assessed to confirm the presence of a heart attack and the need for immediate treatment.
