Nursing Framework

The Nursing Department's philosophy, standards of clinical nursing practice, nursing policies and procedures provide the framework for the delivery of holistic, quality, evidence-based nursing care. Through participation in nursing research, conferences, continuing education and overseas immersion programmes, nurses contribute to the advancement of knowledge of nursing practice and healthcare.

At the heart of our model of professional nursing practice is the patient. Encapsulating our practice are the core values; namely, compassion – kindness and caring for everyone, integrity – adhering to the highest standard of professional conduct and ethical behaviour, and collaboration - respecting and working well with all others to achieve shared goals.

Based on these shared core values, SKH patients are treated holistically. Patients will be informed of up-to-date expertise and management. SKH nurses take the time to listen and understand patients' needs and concerns so that their journey to wellness is reassuring and positive.

Nursing Specialities

SKH nurses provide individualised care in a wide selection of patient care units and medical specialities. Our skilled and knowledgeable nurses provide specialist-nursing services, empowering patients through providing support, counselling and information. Besides being patient/caregiver educators, they also play a critical role in the development, implementation, review and evaluation of guidelines.
