Story on Sunday – Jenny Tsang, a Neonatal Senior Sister on Trevor Mann Baby Unit
Published 20th October 2021
Story on Sunday! 😊 Following Baby Loss Awareness Week, we have a story from Jenny Tsang, a Neonatal Senior Sister on Trevor Mann Baby Unit in Brighton who also works part time as the Neonatal Child Death Review Keyworker.
Jenny says “I graduated as a paediatric nurse at City University London in 2012. I worked in Homerton University Hospital NICU in East London for just over 2 years where I did my neonatal qualified in speciality training before getting my job on Trevor Mann Baby Unit in Brighton (TMBU) in 2015 to be closer to home and my family.
I have been working on TMBU for over 6 years now and I am super passionate about my job caring for sick/premature babies and their families. It is a highly rewarding job and I feel privileged to be a part of their NICU journey. I have been a part of the Sussex Neonatal Transport team for over 2 years now and I have been working in my role as the Neonatal Child Death Review Keyworker for almost a year.
Supporting bereaved families and supporting staff who deliver the care to these families is very important because as a health care professional we can have such a positive influence on how families experience care when their baby dies. I am aware no matter what care we deliver we will never be able to take away the pain families may feel but we work very hard as a team to make sure we can give them the best possible care during this difficult time.
So many charities also help to support us and the families including EBA who fund many of our bereavement items for the unit. We also work closely with @sandscharity @achingarmsuk @heartingheirhand @4louis.charity @owfoscarswishfoundation and we are so grateful for all the help and support they give for us and the bereaved families.”
