Happy Nurses Day 2017

This year 2017, The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has chosen the theme, Nurses: A Voice to Lead, Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish A Very Happy Nurses Day to all nurses at HUSM and all around the world.  I also would like to acknowledge and thank you all for your strength, commitment, kindness and care you provide to the patients and their families.

The video below gives us a snapshot of why the world needs nurses. Nursing is possibly one of the most important professions in the world. Yet, nurses continue to be undervalued by so many peoples. Hopefully this inspirational video will throw a new light on this wonderful profession. 
This video was produced by Unit Kejururawatan Hospital USM Kubang Kerian Kelantan.

When you become a nurse, you take the responsibility of caring for the patients 365 days per year. People sometime get sick on the holidays..... same as any other day. No one wants to work on the happiest day of the year. If it wasn't for the nurses who sacrifice their time and their holiday, the patients would not get the care they need. 

In many ways, nurses are the unsung heroes of healthcare most of the time. May all the care and kindness you give to others come back to warm your heart.

Hj Tarmizi Makes Surprise Visit to Our Department.

This morning, May 3 2017 a few staff of the Radiology Department were greeted with a pleasant surprise with the visit of Haji Tarmizi to our department. In the early 1983s, Haji Tarmizi was the X-Ray Film Developer who was famously known among the hospital community for his friendliness and kindness towards the patients and staff alike.

After his retirement in the early 2004, he came back to the Radiology Department all the way from his hometown in Bandar Kulim, Kedah just to see and get together with all the colleagues who once used to serve in the department together with him for more than 20 years of his service.

Below are some of the photos of Haji Tarmizi and friends that we managed to capture: 

Haji Tarmizi expressed his gratitude and satisfaction with the few hours spent in HUSM within which he got to see his old friends that are still currently working in HUSM.

Later that evening, Haji Tarmizi came over to my house for afternoon tea before going to the house of the Ex-Chief Radiolographer, Haji Muhamad Abdul Rahman, both of whom he had not visited for a long time.

A message to Malaysian from Pn Sofinee, Co-founder 'Kitchen In Calais'

Dear Malaysian,

I believed each of us that wear hijab will have quiet a number of hijab. Giving one away, I think will not harm anything..

Imagine if I have 200 Malaysian that wear hijab in my friend list. Each of us giving away one. That will help 200 people in need.

How much reward you will have by just giving away only one hijab to people in need? Their doa to you, will one day help us even just in this duniya when we face difficulty.

It's not hard. It'a not difficult for only one hijab, or one abaya, or one maxi, or one blouse, or one jubah.

We live in such a comfort life. We can never imagine how people have to wear same one not just for days, but weeks and months..

Pause and reflect...IS THAT REALLY HARD TO RESPOND?....Ask ourselves...


Mrs. Sofinee Harun 
(Kitchen In Calais)

Their initiative began with one caravan in 2015 serving 100 refugees each day, has now grown into a compound with volunteers working to keep the kitchen running. They actually planned to stay less than a week, but almost a year later, they were still there, helping refugees through their initiative called Kitchen in Calais.

Mr. Jamalullail and her wife, Mrs. Sofinee

Kitchen In Calais was set up by Mr. Jamalullail and wife, Mrs. Sofinee which now been join effort by many people with donation.



In solidarity with the Syria refugees, a talk on refugees organised by Jabatan Radiologi will be held at Dewan Auditorium Jabatan Kecemasan, HUSM on 23 Feb 2017. It’s all about all their experiences of volunteering at the refugee camps in Calais, France.
