For Mani, Assistant Nurse at the Emergency Department, his daily steps at TTSH comes from monitoring patients' vital signs, administering medications, assisting doctors in minor procedures, updating families of the patients' conditions among his other duties.
"I want to make a difference in people's lives, I want to make people feel better, and I desire to help those who are ill".
In Mani's six years of caring for patients, there was a patient case that left a deep impression on him. During one of his night shifts at the A&E, Mani and the medical team helped save a patient who had collapsed and was conveyed to TTSH. For nearly 30 minutes, the team administered CPR and life-saving medicines and finally, there was a rhythm in the patient's ECG. The 32-year old patient was diagnosed with pulmonary embolism and discharged after 50 days in the hospital. Today, whenever the patient comes for a review, Mani feels that he has made a difference to someone's life - "now he is enjoying his life with wife and child".
"I walk, you donate. Small actions with lots of people can bring big change to the community" - Nurse Mani
About the Charity
In keeping with Mr Tan Tock Seng's Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up its charity arm, TTSH Community Fund, in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our patients and the community.
Today, our Charity runs more than 100 patient-centred programmes, disbursing more than $2 million each year for the Charity's activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall through the cracks of the system, and those who are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies.
From expensive non-standard medication and breathing equipment to mobility aids, community rehabilitation programmes, and even dentures to help them eat better, TTSH Community Fund helps needy patients to gain greater independence, improve their quality of life and enable them to integrate back into the community. The Fund also supports healthcare research, innovation, and training for our staff and the community to deliver better patient care.
Our Charity runs entirely on public donations. Every dollar to the Charity goes directly to support our activities. The TTSH Community Fund is a registered charity with IPC status.
2020 marks our Silver Jubilee, and TTSH Community Fund is grateful to our donors and well-wishers for their continued support, which has enabled us to serve our needy patients in the community these past 25 years.
