From Operating Room Nurses to Ward Nurses: Caring for COVID-19 Patients

Staff Nurses Saguntala Devi and Estee Kristine B. Cantos are both operating room nurses with little experience working in the wards. Their lives changed when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. The operating room nurses at Farrer Park Hospital were activated and trained within a tight timeline to care for patients in the wards.

“As operating room nurses, we only see patients in the operating theatre when they arrive for their surgery. In the wards, we have to interact with them and care for them,” explained SN Devi.

One of the challenges that these nurses had to overcome was the language barrier as most of their patients were foreign workers who did not understand much English. The full PPE made the communication difficult but these nurses do not have any regrets.

“There is nothing more meaningful than seeing the patients I cared for, recover and go home to their family safely,” SN Devi concluded.
