Nurses at the Orange Veterinary Hospital celebrated vet nurse day on Thursday. Nurse Lucy Danson said nurses triage animals, assist in their preparation for surgery and give anesthetic. “It’s a team effort to help support people’s best friends when they need it,” Ms Danson said.
“Keeping them healthy and helping them when they’re sick. Being compassionate is the most important thing as a nurse, putting yourself in the shoes of the patient and advocating for them when they’re in hospital.”
The team celebrating vet nurse day included vet nurses from Amie Beldham, Hayley Steinbacher, Martine Moore, Lucy Danson, Emily Cahill, Peta Manchester, Rosie Heather, Bec Steedman and Amber Kerr (Pictured right).
