Heroes of our time-Marina Petrovna Barmina

We are launching a new category “Heroes of our time” dedicated to the Center’s employees who received state and departmental awards for their work in 2023. Today we will tell you about Marina Petrovna Barmina, a nurse of the Department of Kidney Transplantation and Vascular Surgery of the N. A. Lopatkin Research Institute of Urology and Interventional Radiology, a branch of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “NMRC of Radiology” of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, whose contribution was appreciated by the Gratitude of the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation:

“A doctor is a head, and nurses are hands”

At a very young age, even before school, Marina saw a program on TV in which a man in a white coat was broadcasting about blood cells. Not all the terms were clear at that time, but the desire to learn more about what cells were and what the doctor was talking about grew with her from that moment on.

After graduating from Medical College No. 6 and completing an internship, Marina went to the P. A. Herzen Moscow Research Institute of Radiology, a branch of the National Research Medical Center of Radiology of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation in the thoracoabdominal department, where she met her future husband, a surgeon of the department.

Then, in her professional career, there were two years of general oncology departments that were remembered for the most difficult cases and patients, and this experience taught her a lot as a nurse.

In 2016, a mature specialist Marina Petrovna joined the Department of Kidney Transplantation and Vascular Surgery in another branch of our Center — the N. A. Lopatkin Research Institute of Urology and Interventional Radiology.

Here’s how Marina Petrovna herself talks about her current job::

— It’s hard to imagine that in your head. When you prepare a person for surgery, they are usually seriously ill and in urgent need of surgical treatment. And a day later you meet with him and he is already a completely different person with different experiences, with different thoughts, filled with life. And here comes the main role of nurses: nursing the patient. You have to be a psychologist, a nutrition consultant, and a nurse.

Marina Petrovna notes “ “I really like the expression’ The doctor is the head, and the nurse’s medics are the hands”, because this is true, we work in tandem.”

In addition to the fact that Marina Petrovna Barmina prepares patients for operations, cares for them after surgery, she also participates in hemodialysis – a special method of blood purification using the “artificial kidney” device for acute or chronic renal failure, because this is already the specifics of her department.

Marina’s main distinguishing feature in life is that she is an activist! She is very energized by her active participation in the Institute’s activities, her whole life is closely connected with the National Research Center of Radiology of the Ministry of Health of Russia — her work, her husband, and friends are all from there. She is happy to participate in the All-Russian information and educational project “Oncopatrul”, where she conducts first-class seminars and master classes for medical personnel on the care of stomatized patients and their rehabilitation. At the end of the first master class, her colleagues gave her a standing ovation!

All this immensely charges Marina and gives her even more strength.

“I feel a sense of responsibility for patients as for my relatives,” Marina Petrovna shares her “secret”. “This factor is an incentive for constant development and learning, and serves me as an antidote to burnout.”
