A fun-filled day to applaud our nurses
LIFE Empangeni Private Hospital’s International Nurses’ Day celebration was a fun-filled event.
Staff and their families gathered at Addison Park on Saturday for a day of friendly competition and lots of laughs.
‘The main objective of the day was to celebrate the dedicated work of our nurses in providing professional care for all the patients,’ said Public Relations Officer Zibuyile Mthiyane.
‘The management also invited family members to join as they play a vital role in our employees’ lives, providing support when they work long hours.
‘The day was filled with so much fun and laughter.
‘Staff and family could engage in various fun activities, such as tug of war, sack races, egg and spoon races, three leg races, a bed pan relay, a ‘granma and granpa’ race and even a manager’s race.
‘We also had a best banner competition, best team spirit contest and a beauty pageant.’

The Emergency unit won the best banner competition.
