"The satisfaction that comes from my patients' smiles and hearing that they are coping well is what keeps me going".
Rujia regularly visits patients in their homes and checks on their well-being after discharge. Speaking a mix of Mandarin, Hokkien and English, she helps her patients with wound dressings and checks that medications are taken correctly. Sometimes, she even helps to tidy up the homes of elderly patients staying alone to reduce their risk of tripping. Rujia also works with community partners to ensure patients receive continuity of care beyond the hospital.
Rujia feels that she is blessed to have been a nurse for 27 years and to be able to care for many patients in the ICU, cardiac rehabilitation and community health. Till date, Rujia's former patients will still call her to update on their conditions.
"I once had a young patient suffering from lung fibrosis. Her fighting spirit to look beyond her worsening condition inspires me to do more". Through this campaign, Rujia hopes that her 'steps' will encourage more to help. "We may think we are having a hard time, but others may be worse off. Your donation can make a difference". Community Nurse Rujia.
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.
