Incredible experiences in ICU

I had the honour to work with Alice Dyna (Head Nurse, with several assistants who oversaw every shift of SIC) in the Recovery Room & Surgery ICU, before it was divided into two units. As an RN, I  worked there from 1973-76, completing the ICU Course and having incredible experiences as a relatively new grad (Grace 1972). Truly a learning experience. While challenging at times, I loved every minute – even calculating AaDO2s (LOL). Staff were encouraged to present on topics during education days. Bedside ICU nurses were well respected by the physicians. Dr Keith Warrian and Dr Lewis Oppenheimer were our primary residents and always knew exactly what was going on and how to give the best care.

Staff Wellness

Some of my favorite memories at HSC come from the multiple staff art projects that we completed over the years. I coordinated the projects at the Wellness Fairs and Earth Day and hundreds of staff helped each project come to life! The staff of HSC never cease to amaze me, and I am lucky I was able to get to know so many of them through my past Staff Wellness role. I also have many other fond memories from the Wellness Fairs and events hosted by Staff Wellness, not to mention the daily joy I had when I worked in the staff gym.

Feels like home

Jodi Walker-Tweed has connections to WGH and HSC going back to her birth. Pictured above at the front entrance to the WGH Women’s Pavilion, Jodi is cradled in her Mom’s arms as they prepare to go home in 1968. Years later, Jodi would attend the HSC School of Nursing and go on to nursing and leadership roles at HSC and within the regional health authority. Currently, Jodi is the Shared Health Provincial Clinical Service Lead for Critical Care Emergency & Trauma and her office is located at HSC. “Being on the same campus still feels like ‘home’,” she says. Jodi gave birth to both of her children at the same hospital (now known as HSC Winnipeg Women’s Hospital).

OR advice

Following her graduation from the WGH Operating Room Technician program in 1964, our mother worked in the WGH surgery. She loved the work and her colleagues.

While being interviewed by a group of medical and surgical residents recently,  they asked her advice about what was most important for them to remember in the OR. “Be humble,” she said. Then added, with characteristic humour, “And don’t throw scalpels.”

Thank you labour and delivery unit!

Both of my kids were born at Women’s Hospital. My son in 2020 and my daughter in 2022. We experienced warm and caring staff, clean and modern facilities, and just an overall positive time. Thank you to everyone in the labour and delivery unit for everything they did for us!

Volunteer to Doctor

“I enjoyed interacting with patients in a meaningful manner to give them some respire from whatever illness was affecting their lives. That’s probably the most rewarding part of volunteering.”
