To celebrate International Nurses Day at Humberston’s residential and nursing care home, Clarendon Hall, had a set of special patients waiting to be treated by Residents.
Nurses were given a treat of goodie bags with pamper items in, along with a special poem written specially to commemorate the day, by Wellbeing Coordinator Hayley.
Residents also dressed up in homemade nurse hats and aprons that were made the day before. Then, following a talk about nursing from Home Manager, Nicola Walker, the Residents watched a demonstration on bandaging, before having a go themselves on the teddy patients for the day, see pictured.
The room was decorated like a field hospital, which included a flag and a waiting area for the ‘patients’. Hayley remarked, “It looks like a field hospital in here, I feel like I've gone back in time!”
Michelle Tuck, Colleague, was also bandaged up, and even had her arm put in a sling.
Residents loved finding out about the history of nursing and bandaging the teddies.
