"My mother comes from a big family, she is one of 13 children so our Christmas days were busy. It was always at our house which was the smallest, but hosted the biggest celebration. I remember going to Church on Christmas Eve, which was exciting because we got to stay up late for midnight mass, but we were always so tired the next day. It feels like now days it's a money thing and we look at the presents rather than the feeling that goes behind Christmas Day, we are missing the real reason."

We're in full silly season swing, but before you try your hand at balancing on your rooftop to hang the Christmas lights or testing out a skateboard post-office party, Caboolture ED nurses Krystal and Tim are here to remind you about being sensible! 🤶🧑‍🎄

They see all types of preventable injury presentations in the emergency department from now until Boxing Day, ranging from broken bones from new toys and stiletto stacks, through to cutting of fingers in the kitchen, or gall bladder issues from too much fatty food.

"But lots of people are lonely on Christmas so mostly we see a lot of mental health patients," Tim said.

"It's a reminder to be kind and look after each other this Christmas." ❤️

As the holiday season ramps up, Caboolture security guards Vic and Corey are the elves behind the scenes keeping everyone safe! ❤️

For some, Christmas and the holiday period can see increased use of alcohol and drugs and we find we have a lot more patients presenting to hospital, often in a distressed state.

"Effective communication is key, we try to empathise and assist everybody in a safe way - patient safety is paramount," Vic said.

"We do things differently here, we want to be seen as approachable and non-intimidating, don’t be afraid of the blue shirts." ✨

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for baby Rory, who was born six weeks early ensuring she snuck in more of the holiday festivities!

Since her birth, she's been spending her time under the watchful eye of the Caboolture Hospital #NICU team.🎅

"We don't have a definite date just yet, but I do know she will be home for Christmas, and we are so excited that we get to spend it with her," mum Summah said. 🎄 #FeelgoodFriday

We're decking the halls at #STARS today as nurses Shania and Samantha show us that 'tis the season to be jolly . 🎄

Many of our patients won't be home for Christmas, but our staff always make it their goal to bring Christmas into the hospital.

"It can be hard for some patients who are here over this period, which is why it's special for us, as we get to bring them some Christmas cheer," Samantha said.

Tell us in the comments how you'll brighten the festive period for your loved ones in hospital. 🌟
