• Birchmount RN Wins Nursing Hero Award
    Published May 20, 2011

    Robert Chau learned at a young age the importance of choosing a career where he could help others. His father was a high ranking member of the Vietnamese diplomatic service, who instilled in his son the selfless benefits of helping his community.

    Today, Robert, an RN in the post-anaesthetic care unit at the Birchmount campus, has the honour of being one of the three top Nursing Heroes awarded by Hospital News, a national healthcare newspaper.

    “This is a big honour for me, and it inspires me to be a better nurse, always, every day,” Robert says. “I treat each patient as they were my father, who recently passed away. He told me, ‘Robert, treat every patient as if you were treating me, or a member of your family.’ Since his illness, I have gone to a further level and treat each patient with a little extra care.”

    As one of Hospital News’ three top Nursing Heroes, Robert was featured in its annual special section on Nursing in the May edition. Hospital News received 12 nominations this year from The Scarborough Hospital, the most of any hospital in Canada. Robert was featured in several other local publications, including The Scarborough Mirror, Ming Pao and Sing Tao.
