Meet Dvora Ben-Zvi. Dvora is the Assistant Director of Nursing at ALYN Hospital in Jerusalem, Israel the only freestanding Pediatric Rehabilitation Hospital in the country. In her role, Dvora is responsible for writing nursing procedures, oversight of the hospital’s risk management team, orientation of new staff, and supervision of the nursing care provided in ALYN. Dvora joined the IPRC Steering Committee in 2017 and adds great depth to the committee with her clinical insights and her viewpoint as both a rehab nurse and an administrator. In addition to her years in pediatric rehabilitation, Dvora has a wealth of experience that has shaped her perspective including military service, critical care nursing, cardiac expertise, and emergency medicine.
“Moving into pediatrics opened a whole new world to me. I have learned the real meaning of multi-disciplinal team work and the joy and pride we take in even the smallest success. I enjoy interacting with both patients and families and staff members and continue to learn and grow. I am proud to have had a part in advancing the nursing team to where they are today. Working at ALYN has taught me to see the full half, quarter, or even tenth of the cup.”
“Being part of IPRC is important to ALYN as we lack other pediatric rehab institutes in Israel for benchmarking. Networking and sharing information with other professionals facing similar challenges is part of being a leader and IPRC makes this possible.”
In her free time, you’ll find Dvora doing water aerobics, Israeli folk dancing, knitting, and sewing. Learn more about ALYN
