Margaret Sabti

Theatre Nurse

Introducing RMR theatre nurse Margaret Sabti who has over 40 years' nursing experience and loves her job, her family, and a good book.

How long have you been a nurse?

A long time now! I began nursing in 1971 and qualified in 1975 from the nursing school at Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow. I’ve worked all these years as a theatre nurse and I still really enjoy it.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

I’d say that my favourite part is being respected by the medical team. I enjoy feeling valued and accepted by my nursing colleagues and supporting them in delivering the best care for our patients.

I take great pride in everything being done correctly and meticulously and even when I work in a hospital that I’ve not been to before I can adapt really quickly to that environment. Gaining that respect makes it easier to become a team, even when we’re new to each other. I find that very rewarding.

What’s it like working for RMR?

Working for RMR allows me to enjoy my job without the stress and politics often associated with being a nurse in today’s world. I work between 3 and 5 shifts per week and can choose when I want to work without feeling any guilt. I work hard but it’s on my terms, and its hassle free.

Outside of work how do you spend your time?

I’ve usually got about three books on the go. I lead a busy life, so I like to escape with a good book - a romance or something light-hearted. I love eating out, going to the cinema, and cooking for friends and family. I like having everyone over for dinner and making a fuss of them. I also enjoy baking, particularly birthday cakes which I still make for my sons even though they are all grown up now. I’m a family person and like to make everyone feel special.

What tune is guaranteed to get you on the dance floor?

Blimey! Michael Jackson or anything 80s is guaranteed to get me up dancing, especially if I’ve had a glass of wine.

What three words describe you?

Hard working, loyal and friendly.

What is your favourite holiday destination?

I was in Gran Canaria in May and had a brilliant holiday, so I’ll definitely be going back there.

What advice would you give to someone considering working for RMR?

I’d encourage them to do it. It’s a different option and as I said before it’s free from politics and stress and you can just go in and enjoy doing your job.
