There is rarely a dull moment in a nurse’s life. A typical day involves monitoring their patients, performing procedures, ensuring prescribed medicines are given on time, calming anxious or angry relatives, and relieving the stress of colleagues in what is often a high-pressure environment. Then there are times when the challenges multiply, such as when violence breaks out or a pandemic disrupts all existing protocols.
At times like these, some nurses display an exceptional humanitarian spirit, setting aside their own fears and quickly adapting their response to ensure that patients continue to receive life-saving treatment with the limited resources available. We bring you the stories of four such nurses – from Australia, Japan, Thailand and Ukraine – who were recently honoured with the prestigious Florence Nightingale Medal.
