Gaynor is ‘knot’ your average type of scout! Leaving behind her knowledge in rope-tying and canoeing, she instead leans on her quick-thinking as a theatre nurse scrub scout at #Redcliffe Hospital. 🏞😄🌲

She relies on her scout problem-solving skills to manage the incoming traumas through seven emergency theatres, attesting that no two days are ever the same.

“You never know what will be coming in with cases from orthopaedic to emergency traumas, maternity cases and more,” Gaynor said. 🚑

"My role is responsible for coordinating the incoming surgeries and making sure the surgeons have everything they need to just get in there and go.

“You become familiar with the preferences of surgeons including the positioning of patients, the specific instrumentation they like to use, and which ones prefer a quiet theatre versus a little Bob Dylan playlist.”

With so many exciting upgrades on the horizon at Redcliffe Hospital, including the 204-bed expansion, now is the time to join the team.

Baby Isabelle has just passed her hearing test at Caboolture Hospital, meaning she won’t need to see audiologist Georgia again until she is three and a half years old.👂

Isabelle cleared her new-born screening, but a risk factor was identified, meaning she needed to be monitored from birth until she received the good news at her recent screening. But it’s not just babies that the audiology team see, looking after those up to 16 years of age, across a range of reasons from speech and language delay through to middle ear problems.

"We are a small team with a big impact,” Georgia said.

"We try and make the appointments as fun as possible for the little ones, through the use of toys, puppets, games and even bubbles in the hopes of reducing anxiety levels.” 💞🧸🪀

“After my husband passed away 22 years ago, our downstairs neighbour moved in to help share the cost of rent. He has just passed away and I’m not sure where to move next. I still want to live independently, because I know I will treat my children like they’re still kids if we live together, even though they’re adults now. They’ll say to me ‘maaa leave us alone’.”

Have you heard the moooos? After more than two decades, people who lived in the United Kingdom during the 'mad cow disease' outbreak (1980-1996) can now donate blood in Australia! 🐮

Australian Red Cross Lifeblood has advised that removing this rule ensures that Australia's blood supply remains one of the safest in the world, while allowing for up to 58,000 additional donations each year.

"I lived in the UK in the 1980's which meant I was never able to donate blood. They have lifted the rules recently so I am looking forward to being able to donate", said Dr David Freidin, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at #RBWH.

"When you practice in emergency, the readiness and availability of blood is very important. The more donations the better."

It takes a team of people to help a patient on their journey post-stroke, and social workers like Nicole are one important piece of the puzzle. 🧩

Nicole looks at the patient's individual circumstances, providing socioeconomic, cultural and emotional support, with the addition of helping the patient process the stroke itself, which can be quite distressing.

"I help the patient adjust to what life looks like now and what it means for their future," she said.

It's the role of a social worker to also work alongside the family and carers to make sure they too are working through the situation, by putting supports in place so they can cope and manage moving forward. 💞
