“People would ask me how I’d get past working so closely with mum . . . work is work, you can’t let family get in the way and we don’t discuss family issues at work. When we work together we understand each other really well.” - Registered nurse Maridy Morrison
Intensive care nurses Maridy Morrison and Marizon Villanueva have worked in the same hospital, team and ward for almost 20 years.
Maridy said that when she started her job as a nurse in Westmead Hospital’s intensive care unit where mum Marizon worked, people had a lot of questions.
Marking the end of an era, Maridy (left) has now taken on a role with Westmead Hospital’s nursing executive as a clinical nurse educator.
