Caring Nurses Award

"South Huron Hospital Association and South Huron Hospital Foundation would like to congratulate Sherri Leis, RN and Kyla Bradley, RPN on being winners of the CARING NURSE AWARD!  They were selected by Bayshore Broadcasting based on the stories patients tell of the remarkable care they received.

Twice a year, Bayshore Broadcasting (104.9 the Beach) runs an on-air donation campaign which is called "Bayshore's Healthy Tomorrow".   It promotes and supports all the Foundations in the region which are the link  to each local community.  South Huron Hospital and South Huron Hospital Foundation hear the great compliments and stories about our excellent nursing staff.  People in the community feel the difference made by a Nurse who takes extra special care during a patient's time of need.  Patients and their families  feel it is important  to pass on that good news. 

Our sincere congratulations to Sherri and Kyla!  Each Caring Nurse award winner receives a plaque and a rose from Bayshore Broadcasting and will be profiled on 104.9 the Beach radio station and on Bayshore's Healthy Tomorrow website.  SHHA Foundation presented each with a beautiful bouquet of fresh-cut flowers.

Canadian Agricultural Safety Week March 9-15th

Did you know?
Canadian Agricultural Safety Week is March 9-15th

According to Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting

statistics, from 1990 to 2008, there were 248 recorded

agricultural fatalities among children under 15

years of age. That’s an average of 13 deaths a year.

Approximately 44 per cent of those fatalities involved

children under the age of five. The most common

causes of child-related fatalities on the farm include

being run over by equipment, drowning, or equipment

rollovers. In many cases, fatalities are work-related,

though the child isn’t necessarily performing the

agricultural task at the time of the injury. So what

can parents do to raise their children in a way that

celebrates farm life, while keeping them safe? The

answer is a lot, but it involves having a really good

understanding of child development levels, abilities and

limitations, as well as when and how to set clear rules

and boundaries, so that everyone stays happy, healthy and happy.
