Spinal nurse wins private sector praise

  • Comment

A spinal care nurse from London has won a national nursing award for work in the independent health sector.

Herman Yabut received the Nursing Practice award at this year’s Independent Healthcare Awards.

Mr Yabut works in the spinal service at BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital in Harrow, north London.

Medical colleagues said the win recognised his contribution to patient care, consultant engagement and service delivery, since he started at the hospital back in 2009.

Dr Jan Cernovsky, a consultant anaesthetist in Mr Yabut’s unit, said: “Herman is without doubt the biggest independent factor determining the success of the spinal surgery team.

“His dedication to the care of his patients has reduced the number of cancelled operations and reduced the time high risk spinal patients spend in ITU after their operation. Herman is an essential part of our team and his work has helped dramatically improve our patient satisfaction results.”
