A local palliative ward unit nurse, who has a special understanding of what her patients’ families are going through, has won 1029 Hot Tomato’s Gold Coast Nursing Award for June.
Sandra Roberts was nominated for the award by her husband Mike, who told myGC her past experience has made her a fantastic nurse.
“Our son had a bad drowning accident in 1994 and needed very high care until he finally passed away in 2000. Through the whole process my wife had an incredible caring heart for our son,” Mike said in his nomination.

“Once the hurt from our loss started to be healed my wife decided to put herself through Uni as a mature aged student and became a Nurse. She now works at Robina in the Palliative ward unit where she has a special understanding of what the family and patients are going through.”
Along with a certificate, Sandra wins $250 and is now a finalist in the annual Gold Coast Nursing Award, where she could take home $5000 if she wins her category at the end of the year.
