International Nurses Day: Lockhart Nurse Retires After Career Spanning Five Decades - Greater Southern Area Health Service

www.gsahs.nsw.gov.au [cached]

This year's International Nurses Day celebrations will be memorable for Lockhart Registered Nurse Pam Ellis, who is retiring after a nursing career which spans a total of five decades.

Lockhart Health Service will say thank you to its nurses for the vital role they play in the local community with a lunch on Thursday 17 May at 1pm which will also be a farewell for Pam Ellis.
Pam began her nursing career in 1958 with four years training at Ipswich General Hospital. She accepted a position at The Rock hospital in 1962, then a small eight-bed facility run as an annexe to Wagga Wagga Base Hospital.
After a 22 year break from nursing following her marriage to a local farmer and raising four children while managing a property, Pam decided to return to nursing. She completed a refresher course at Griffith Base Hospital and took up a position as a Registered Nurse at Lockhart Hospital in 1986.
Pam has been caring for local residents at Lockhart Hospital ever since.
The most significant changes she has seen in her time as a Registered Nurse are the move from glass to disposable plastic syringes, safer infection control and occupational health and safety improvements.
"Best of all is the shorter stays in hospital for patients with better outcomes," she said.
Pam said one of the highlights of her career was nursing children with poliomyelitis after an outbreak in the local area in the early 1960s.
