Recognition for newborn hearing screening team
The team submitted a series of photographs documenting the work of a newborn hearing screener, and won an award for ‘cutest use of TDHB values’.
The values included:
- treating people with trust, respect and compassion
- communicating openly, honestly and acting with integrity
- enabling professional and organisational standards to be met
- supporting achievement and acknowledging successes
- creating healthy and safe environments work
- welcoming new ideas.
Mary Bird, Allied Health Support Manager at Taranaki Base Hospital, says winning a category in the competition was recognition for the work of the region’s newborn hearing screeners.
“They do really worthwhile work with parents and their babies, and we welcomed a chance to share a glimpse of this work with the wider world,” she says.
Hearing screener Diane Churchman says working with newborns like two-week-old Oliver is a pleasure.
