Emergency Department improving service for CALD patients

5 December 2018

Improving multicultural awareness in the Emergency Department (ED) has been a big focus for staff recently thanks to senior ED Registered Nurse Mitikie Worku.

Mitikie said her work as a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Project Clinical Nurse earlier this year had inspired her to have all ED Vocera badges to link up with nurses who speak other languages and who were able to translate for CALD patients without having to leave the bedside.

NUM Tracy Churchill said Mitikie had also coordinated a trivia game as a part of a multicultural lunch.

"The prize was an amazing Ethiopian meal cooked by her," Tracy said.

She said staff provided food from other cultures for the celebration.
