This week’s staff spotlight is none other than, Registered Nurse and 2017 National Development Scholarship winner, Rosanna Lewis.
Employed at the QEH for 10 years, Rosanna began her stint at the hospital as a Registered Nurse in the Main Out-Patient’s Clinic. In this capacity Rosanna worked diligently to coordinate the first World Pediatric Project (WPP) and Sandy Lane Charitable Trust (SCLT) scoliosis clinics to give children diagnosed with scoliosis, i.e. curvature of the spine, the opportunity to live happier, more comfortable and active lives. Although no longer assigned to the Main Out-Patients Clinics, Rosanna fondly reminisces about this time in her career as she loved interacting with her patients and “seeing them through the rehabilitation process” following surgery.
In 2017 Rosanna was awarded a National Development Scholarship to pursue a Master of Science Degree in Occupational Safety, Health and Environmental Management at Middlesex University in London. Although this educational pursuit took Rosanna away from her family and friends, Rosanna’s hard work and determination paid off and she completed her course of study in November 2018, graduating at the top of her class.
On her return to the QEH, Rosanna was assigned to the Occupational Safety, Health and Wellness section in the Human Resources Department where her enthusiasm for her job and tireless efforts have not gone unnoticed.
When not on the job, Rosanna enjoys reading James Patterson novels, and indulging in various cuisines, but reserves her unfettered love for Chicken Alfredo.
If the lottery numbers are ever in her favour, Rosanna, who is an asthmatic, plans to donate all her winnings to the Asthma Society.
