Everyone at Towerview Care would like to say very well done and a massive congratulations to one of our incredible nurses Rebekah Theaker.
Rebekah attended the Tissue Viability Ambassador Programme that was put together by the Staffordshire Tissue Viability Nurses team as a way to increase wound management knowledge in nurses working in nursing homes.
She wanted to share what she had learnt with everyone else at Towerview Care and put together a document called Wound Information and Guidance. Carrie Felgate, the Head of Health Improvement and Protection and Deputy DIPC at Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust was so impressed with her work that she has invited Rebekah to speak about her work at the Stop the Pressure Conference in November 2019. Carrie said “It is great to receive this feedback as it really motivates the Tissue viability nurses when they hear that their work is motivating others. What I would like to do is share Rebekah’s work with other homes across Staffordshire, as others would probably appreciate a resource like this.”
Rebekah told us, “For my work to be recognised in this way is incredible; it is a piece of work that I created to share the knowledge that I had learnt from my recent course with my fellow nurses at Towerview Care and help create a simple treatment pathway within our homes which would provide clear guidance. To be invited to speak at the Stop the Pressure Conference is even more incredible and something that I never thought that I would have the chance to do in my career, but something that I am looking forward to being a part of”
Shirley Ann Rowe, Towerview Care’s Managing Director said “This is fantastic news, congratulations Rebekah, we are all very proud of the work that you are doing and so pleased to have it recognised in this way.”
Karen Spooner, Matron said, “Rebekah came to Towerview care as a experienced nurse with lots to offer the service; as the Matron making efforts to build on our nursing team I was very excited to have her one board. Throughout her time with us (which is approaching a year) she has proven herself, not just to be a very valued member of the nursing team, but a nurse who has a full understanding and appreciation of the challenges nurses now face within their role, especially when they are working towards making such big changes to a service.
This achievement was something that Rebekah completed to assist her colleagues in their knowledge and skills in her own time; which shows the passion she has not just for providing the correct care to people she supports but also to anyone that may need support in their lives. I expect much more from Rebekah in the years to come and it will be Towerview cares pleasure to support her with her development.”
