337

Nursing personnel of Mediclinic Limpopo took time out of their hectic schedules to have a sit-down meal on Friday to celebrate International Nurse’s Day, which falls on 12 May, also being Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
Mediclinic Limpopo general manager, MC Botha thanked all nursing personnel for their dedication and said the function in honour of the nursing personnel was just a small token of the hospital management’s appreciation for their dedication.
Stephina Leboho was announced as the winner of the annual Nursing Excellence Award in recognition of the dedication she invests into caring for her patients and supporting her colleagues. Nursing manager, Matlou Sathekge said this award was most significant because nominations were made by Leboho’s nursing peers who work alongside her.
A candle lighting ceremony was also held in tribute to Florence Nightingale, also known as the Lady with the Lamp.
