Did you know that 31,000 blood donations are needed every week across Australia to help patients in need? 🩸 Registered nurse and midwife Tenash is such a regular blood and plasma donor, she can't even remember how many times she's done it!

"I know it's been at least 25 times, but honestly I've lost count!" she said.

"I work with sick babies and mums all the time, I know how important and life-changing these donations can be to patients and their families.

"Everyone who can should donate! You never know when someone near and dear to you could need it."

Australian Red Cross Lifeblood are calling for all existing and new donors to book a blood or plasma donation by visiting lifeblood.com.au or by calling 13 14 95.

#Caboolture Hospital’s Dr Emma Maguire is an emergency expert when it comes to snake bites, treating a number of patients each year when they’ve inadvertently crossed paths with one. 🐍 As the toxicology lead in her hospital, she’s responsible for making sure patients who present to the ED are okay and assessing whether they’ve been bitten or envenomed.

Not every bite will require antivenom, but in some cases it can be life-saving! Emma’s message is simple – if you think you've been bitten by a snake, put on a pressure bandage, immobilise the limb that's been bitten, and call 000 to get to the ED as quickly as possible. And please​... don't bring the snake! 🚑

Birthday boy Krispin celebrated his special day yesterday by getting the COVID-19 vaccine! As the Director of Infectious Diseases at RBWH, he couldn't have been more excited to be one of the first to receive the vaccine. 💉🎈🍰

"On my birthday last year COVID-19 was starting to really ramp up and I was worried about what the year had in store for us," he said.

"But this year I got to celebrate my birthday as well as our vaccine rollout at Metro North! It was a great day and I can't wait to see the impact this will have in our communities as more and more Queenslanders get vaccinated."
