Treat people as individuals and always care with a smile

Double award-winning nurse and falls coordinator Sharon Love explains why she is so passionate about her work

What is your job?

I am the falls coordinator for the Northern Health and Social Care Trust in Antrim, Northern Ireland. I manage a service that follows up and screens older people who have fallen in the community. These patients have been attended to by ambulance crews, but have not been automatically transferred to an emergency department. I also review falls incidents and complete investigations on those resulting in moderate to severe injury. Educating staff about falls prevention and management is also a core aspect of this service.
