Keith Donnelly: our May nurse of the month
Keith is a Clinical Nurse Manager at the Euroa Centre at Prince of Wales Hospital and Founder of ‘Keith’s Closet’.
Keith has always enjoyed working in mental health. He understands how important it is to reach out and offer support to clients who are extremely vulnerable and isolated.
Working as a nursing student back in Dublin, Keith was in the general waiting room looking for a client. He remembers walking back with him, feeling really ashamed that he could pick the client out from a crowd in a very busy waiting room, just based on his appearance.
From that moment on, Keith raided his wardrobe, his wife’s wardrobe and started asking friends for clothing donations. This is where the idea of Keith’s Closet started.
