Social worker Jeanne and her team of allied health professionals are always REDy to go, even on the weekends! 🏥 The RED (rapid effective discharge) team is a Caboolture Hospital initiative trialling the effectiveness bringing on a social worker, physio, OT and clinical assistant to work on the weekends so patients can be discharged sooner. 😇

"We don't want patients to basically just be waiting here if they don't need to be in hospital anymore," Jeanne said.

"Allied health professionals don't typically work weekends but we wanted to offer an improved discharge service to our patients so they can go home on the weekend rather than waiting until Monday.

"We also found that it's easier for patient's families to pop to hospital on the weekend when they've got more time on their hands, it's been fantastic so far!"

Meet one of Metro North's dental therapists, Janine! 👋 She's been taking care of tiny teeth for 20 years, treating kids in dental vans across north Brisbane. Janine always knew she wanted to work with kids and wanted to create a warm environment and experience for them when they popped in for a check up. 🦷🪥

"I hated going to the dentist as a kid and I wanted to make sure I had a positive impact on kids that visit," she said.

"I like to play the 'good fairy' and make them feel comfortable, it can be a stressful experience for them sometimes."

‘Henry’ or ‘Henri’? New Mum Gemma just can’t decide on the spelling of her bub's name born at #RBWH this week – and she wants you to help her! 🧸

“My little boy was conceived thanks to a generous sperm donor - I was getting older and wasn’t in a relationship, but I knew I wanted to be a mum and didn’t want to miss the opportunity,” she said.

“It was hard to make the decision not to hold out for the traditional ‘fairy tale’ and to do it on my own, but I have a wonderful family and village around me who have supported me every step of the way.

“I’m so glad I did it – he’s here now and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.” 🥰

With the hardest part now choosing the spelling, comment your preference below! #FeelGoodFriday

The month of June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month – something #RBWH patient Naomi is particularly passionate about. Naomi was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2019 when she was just 39-years-old. 🤍

“For a long time I was misdiagnosed, and it wasn’t until I saw a specialist that I received the news I had bowel cancer," she said.

"It came as a huge shock as I’m a healthy, active person, I don’t drink or smoke, and I don’t have any family history.

“There’s still a lot of stigma around bowel cancer and I want to help break this, so don’t be embarrassed to go to the doctor and have an open conversation about what’s going on - it’s completely treatable if detected early."

#RBWH is home to the only fully-fledged specialist nutrition support team (SNST) in Australia. 😮👏 As a highly specialised area, the SNST consists of a gastroenterologist, pharmacist, specialist dieticians, a nurse and an admin support officer who work together to ensure nutrition access for patients with intestinal injuries and blockages.

Led by Dr Vishal Kaushik, one of only three gastroenterologists in Queensland with advanced nutrition training, the team are looking for a gastroenterologist trainee interested in advancing their clinical nutrition skills through a nutrition fellowship. 🍽

“We see patients who might be unable to access food orally or have trauma injuries to the bowel so aren’t able to eat or absorb their daily nutrition,” Dr Kaushik said.

“We’re able to support these patients on a liquid diet which we manage through gastronomy tubes, enteral feeding tubes and pegs straight into the stomach and jejunum – just like the one I am holding.”
