Profile

Dr Suzanna Sulaiman is passionate in ensuring things are done right in the first place. She has dedicated her time and passion in Patient Safety at a very young age involving in JCI. It is hence of no surprise that she is now a Patient Safety Council and Head of Inpatient Services. Dr Suzanna regards her patients and ward teams like family. Whatever she deems she would want for herself, she would go all out for her patients and team. Her plans of management for the patients are succinct. She has managed to rope her subsidised Ward team to do dedicated Consultant Ward Rounds. She makes sure that ward teams are well supported with proper time table for Consultant Rounds and encourages all levels to work as a team in management of ward patients. She has also been recently appointed Patient Safety Champion, enabling her to have platform to train others to ‘Speak Up’ for Zero Harm, 2020.

She has always been keen in training and ensuring that patients receive optimal care at all times. She is a dedicated teacher and has helped students and residents achieve poster/oral presentations during electives. She believes that to nurture at an early stage as early as medical school years will produce good doctors. In this capacity, Dr Suzanna also oversees the teaching sessions for the Junior Doctors. She has an open door policy with the PGY1s to allow the PGY1s to approach her for any issues. As a mentor/senior, she is approachable, caring and with vast experience, is always able to see light in something that may have been first seen as negative. Her positiveness in life has touched many juniors to improve and be better doctors in serving the public.

Clinically, she continues to embark in Obstetrics and general gynaecology. Her patients regard her as their pillar of strength at all stages of pregnancy. She places an element of motivation to even patients inclusive of encouraging them to attempt exclusive breastfeeding.
