Why did you choose to work at Bispebjerg Hospital?
By accident. I wanted to work in a department of surgical gastroenterology. I like surgical nursing a lot. Department K Admissions, which is where I work, offers primary nursing.
Bispebjerg Hospital does an incredible lot for our working environment. We have a stress policy and a communication policy, which implies that we always have a good atmosphere. We are given classes in communication to learn how to speak properly and better to and with patients and colleagues.
Why did you become a nurse?
I really like the contact with the patients. Helping prevent, motivate and make them well and better. Initially, I had a spare-time job at an old people’s home. This was where I developed an interest in nursing other people.
What is the best thing about your job?
That is when I receive some form of acknowledgment from the patients, when they give me recognition for having done something well, for having made a difference. People are extremely grateful.
