Love and life, work and family

Amy Keogh

Confident and outspoken when necessary, Amy enjoyed her role as a healthcare assistant and had a happy work and home life balance. But this changed as her ward became more disorganised and chaotic, leading to Amy having to provide a reduction in her level of care. The final straw was a patient passing away alone and unnoticed by staff. Amy was left feeling devastated and lost her confidence, her feelings of anger and despondency impacting on her home and work life. The arrival of a new manager led to a new start for the ward, and the improvements put in place helped Amy to once again enjoy both her job and her family.
