Top gong for RNS emergency

Royal North Shore Hospital’s Emergency Department has claimed the 2021 Australasian Emergency Department of the Year Award at the recent College of Emergency Nursing Australasia awards.

Royal North Shore Hospital’s General Manager Alison Zecchin said she was delighted for the team.

“I am very proud of the Emergency Department team after winning CENA’s ED of the Year,” she said.

Our district and state is full of exceptional emergency departments, let alone all of Australasia, so it really is a huge honour to take out this award.

Alison said it was a feather in the cap for a team that had embraced the extra responsibilities that had come its way.

“It has been a tough 18 months or so for all of health, especially for emergency departments who have been under a lot of pressure during the pandemic. Not only have they kept us and our patients safe, they have also had time to take part in the important domestic and family violence pilot, and played an integral role in our hospital being named in the top 10 performing hospitals by the Australia and New Zealand Hip Fracture Registry," she said.

“Our ED team has always been incredible, and I would like to say a huge congratulations to them on this wonderful achievement.”
