  • The Downtown Eastside (DTES) is home to some of British Columbia’s most vulnerable men and women. Our healthcare professionals contribute to improved health outcomes and quality of life for people with complex needs in the DTES.
Clara, a Community Health Nurse, shared an inspiring experience while working in the DTES. She describes an exciting moment that occurred when she was working with a very vulnerable client who was homeless and residing in a respite bed. She worked with multiple organizations to try and get this client into a facility where he could acquire skills for independent living. Being that it was the middle of the month, and many facilities have waitlists, the client was going to be homeless soon. Clara and her team worked together with other community organizations to successfully secure him a shelter bed. Within a week and after a lot of advocacy, they were able to place him in a tertiary facility for rehabilitative purposes.
“What’s exciting and inspiring about this story is that by developing a trusting relationship with the client, working hard and relentlessly advocating, we were able to change the outcome of this client’s life. Achieving this goal felt amazing! Developing trust, fortifying relationships with community agencies, and working with a talented multidisciplinary team can allow you to achieve goals that at first may seem daunting,” says Clara.

  • “I love working in a fast paced environment: You never know what is going to come through the door,” says Vanessa, Emergency Department Registered Nurse at Richmond Hospital (far left). Working in the Emergency Department (ED) there is never a dull moment and no two days are ever the same – one of the many benefits Vanessa highlighted about working in the ED.

Vanessa feels a strong sense of teamwork in the department and she knows she can count on her colleagues. “I feel very supported in my role at Richmond Hospital. It’s routine for my colleagues and I to jump in and help each other. For example, if I am busy with a patient and an ambulance arrives in another room, a colleague will go in to assist and I would do the same for them. We share the workload, and support each other.” Aside from supporting her colleagues, Vanessa also enjoys supporting patients and their families when they come to the Emergency Department. “I feel inspired to do my job when I see the difference it makes in people’s lives every day,” shared Vanessa.
