My name is Samita Adhikari and I’ve worked at The Southport Private Hospital for 4 months.

Describe your job without using a position title?

My current job involves providing person-centred care to the patients. Being a part of multidisciplinary team, I mostly advocate for the patient’s needs to provide excellent patient care that The Southport Private Hospital preaches.

What motivates you and why?

Being a recent graduate - the team at Southport Private teaches me to make a difference. The support and love I have received from the team encourages me to grow as a person every single day. I also feel fortunate to be an important part of the recovery process of the patients- building a therapeutic relationship and advocating for their needs so that they can achieve their goals.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I want to learn so many things as I believe in being a better version of myself. So, I am putting my time and energy every day to learn the things I want to. For now, I want to be able to play guitar which I am working on.

What does the Year of Health and Care Workers mean to you?

The Year of Health and Care Workers is recognition of all the wonderful people who are actively engaging in providing best outcome to patient’s care- clinical, administrator and environmental staff.

What would you say to inspire future generations of workers in health care?

In this industry you can make a difference to people’s lives through empathy and kindness. The health care industry is rewarding and diverse. In this industry you have the career development opportunity, now you are a recent graduate and in future you will be running the whole organisation.
