Vale Norma Boyer

Staff at Unit 2 Broadmeadows Hospital are remembering their dear colleague Norma Boyer, who passed away late last year.

Norma began her nursing career with Northern Health during her graduate year, working on the GEM Unit at Broadmeadows Hospital, before she moved to Unit 2 (Rehabilitation Ward).

Unit 2 was where Norma fulfilled her duties as a dedicated registered nurse for more than 10 years. Norma’s strong leadership qualities and compassionate nature saw her become the assistant nurse unit manager of the ward where she was a great role model and advocate for staff and patients.

Even though Norma was in a leadership role, that didn’t stop her from getting on the floor attending to patients needs and helping her colleagues when we needed it most.

Marie Peau, Registered Nurse and ANUM, who works on Unit 2 and also worked closely with Norma, said Norma was a great asset to Northern Health.

“She was well-loved by her patients and colleagues,” Marie said.

“Norma was a wonderful lady and a knowledgeable, hard-working and compassionate nurse, colleague and mentor to many staff. Norma was not only a wonderful role model and a highly capable nurse, but she was also a great support to many other staff members who had the honour to work alongside her.”

“Her patients were blessed to have such a kind, caring, supportive and competent nurse looking after them. She was a shining light to our ward, and we will always remember her beautiful smile and warm nature she brought to Unit 2.”

“Her hard work and dedication to nursing was inspiring and something to look up to. She bought a smile to all our faces and put soul and love into her work. She was the epitome of compassion and something I will always admire about Norma.”

“On behalf of all our Unit 2 staff at Broadmeadows, Norma will be missed but never forgotten.’
