Working hard to keep the Caboolture community safe is in their blood.

Daughter Jaala, a registered nurse at #Caboolture hospital, mum Anthia, a Queensland police officer, and Dad Spencer a paramedic, just happened to be on shift at the same time, and same place.

"This is the first time we've all been on shift together, let alone bumping into each other, I can't imagine it will ever happen like this again", dad Spencer said. ❤️

Georgina's career dreams were inspired at just 14 years old when she was working at her friend's family pharmacy.

"I thought I wanted to do medicine, then I realised had the most interest and passion in pharmacy. I've only ever worked in Pharmacy!" Georgina said.

Pharmacist Georgina and team leader Stephen work at #TPCH and have collaborated to create a booklet designed to help patients better understand their discharge medication after cardiothoracic surgery, which has landed her a spot as a finalist for the Society of Hospital Pharmacists 'resident of the year' award.

"A patient is often given up to 10 different A4 sheets of paper with information about their medications, so we thought we could create a compact book that a patient could easily follow. Feedback from patients and their respective GPs so far is that they found it very useful and easy to understand."

Lennox Jay arrived on Tuesday 20 September at the #RBWH, soon to join his four older siblings at home. 🖐️

"His brother Zac forgets his name and calls him scratch. I think the name might stick around for years to come!" mum Kelli said.

"Jay is my middle name, so we were going to call him LJ, or Knox - now its scratch."

Just as Leonardo da Vinci created art, the new da Vinci robot at #STARS creates 3D image masterpieces through strong magnification of the surgical area. 👨‍🎨🎨

Urologist Dr Matthew Roberts has been performing successful removals of cancerous prostates with the help of the robot and says he’s thankful to have played a few computer games in his youth.

“I was a big computer game guy growing up, so my experience with consoles have allowed me to take to the system’s mechanics a bit easier,” Dr. Roberts said.

“We control the robot’s ability to make incisions and stitches using tiny wristed instruments that move like the human hand, but with an increased range of motion.

“The tiny instruments together with the 3D camera allow us to perform procedures in a minimally invasive way which reduces recovery periods and time spent in hospital for the patient.” 🌟

If you have been to ward 7A South at #RBWH, you may have come across orthopaedic social worker, Stacey! 👩🏻

As an orthopaedic social worker, Stacey is responsible for providing emotional, adjustment and psychosocial support to patients in the 30-bed ward who are recovering from a range of traumatic injuries and experiences. 💗

“A lot of the patients I see come in because of motor vehicle accidents or major traumas that can cause spinal injuries, various fractured limbs or even loss of limb,” Stacey said.

“Depending on the injury, a person can go from walking independently one day, to suddenly needing to function in a completely different way the next.

“These adjustments can have huge impacts on their families, so it’s equally important to check in and make sure they’re doing OK and support them where we can as well.” 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

The team are currently advertising a social worker role to manage the burns unit, so click the link to apply and join Stacey and the team today: bit.ly/3dpvCyX 💫
