Ms Goh Khoon Fong,
Principal Enrolled Nurse,
Day Surgery Centre

2021 Asian Hospital Management Awards - Excellence Award (Patient Safety Category)

21 November 2023

In her 38 years of nursing experience, Khoon Fong has served TTSH's Day Surgery Centre for 20 years, playing a pivotal role in providing pre-and-post operative patient care management across a diverse range of surgical specialisations. Beyond her training, she also actively renders pre-operative counselling for Total Knee Replacement patients and is a valuable team player to mobilise these post-op patients early for achieving faster recovery.

During the pandemic, Khoon Fong led and guided juniors in swabbing patients whilst managing the ward’s day-to-day COVID-19 cases with the latest information and policy changes in mind.

Khoon Fong assists in the discharge of post-operative eye patients using the approved Patient Anaesthesia Discharge Scoring which led to timely discharges and improved bed-turnaround time. Keeping patients’ next-of-kin contact numbers up to date has also ensured proper phone check-ins on discharged individuals, resulting in better overall patient experience and clinical outcome.

Her dedication and selflessness have also inspired and empowered young nurses to give their best.
