"When you are a nurse, you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours".
For Vicky, nursing is a challenging profession as one has to deal with life and death every day. However, looking after patients and seeing them improve day-by-day gives him a sense of achievement and encourages him not to give up easily in life.
"We had an elderly patient who was admitted for severe knee pain. Due to his age, it was risky for him to undergo total knee replacement. However, he insisted to proceed with the operation. A few days after the operation, he was able to move around with minimal assistance". Vicky was impressed by the patient's persistence which taught him the value of being resilient.
A positive mindset, cheerful patients and friendly and helpful colleagues are what drives Vicky to excel at work. At Ward 9B, Vicky monitors patients' vital signs, change wound dressings, assists doctors with procedures and checks in with patients on their well-being, among his other duties.

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.
