Volunteer profile: Ros Stuart

December 3, 2018

Ros Stuart is a busy woman. This year she started volunteering as a concierge and outpatient volunteer in our specialist clinics at Eye and Ear on the Park, but this isn’t her first foray into volunteering. Ros is also involved in committees and focus groups at the Eye and Ear and volunteers at Blind Sports Victoria. On top of that Ros still manages to find time to spend with her 8 year old grandson Michael, and for Aqua Aerobics.

Ros has been a consumer representative at the hospital for about a year. She is currently involved in the Infection Control Committee and has also participated in a number of focus groups. As a former nurse, she brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to these focus groups and committees. She understands the importance of preventing healthcare-associated infections and is a strong advocate for hand washing.

What makes Ros special is that she lives with a vision impairment herself, and is a patient here which enables her to better understand other patients. Ros is a ‘people person’ and loves to interact with patients.

You can find Ros every second Friday on the ground floor in the Outpatient Clinics.
