In June Caboolture Ed cared for my husband Wayne Marshall at 3.30 am on a Monday morning the level of care was fantastic as he was transferred to the coronary Care unit at 11.00 am We were very happy with the care and service of Caboolture we are forever grateful 💞💞💞💞💞

I received amazing care at ED Caboolture last Friday night after fully dislocating my elbow. The paramedics, nurses, doctors and support staff were so efficient and definitely delivered person centered care, I felt in safe hands. Full credit to you and the staff 😃

Best wishes for your time at Faboolture. Has Nerys Brackman moved on to different area of expertise?

Amazing work, beautiful woman ⭐️

Such a great cause! When I worked in remote Queensland we would fly patients out and they couldn’t return home on the commercial plane as they had no shoes! Not the first things on our minds while they were laying on a RFDS stretcher!

You're a super star!

Nikia is a shining light in the Nurse Navigator space!! Not only does she do an outstanding job in the care of MNHHS patients she and her colleagues are making a significant difference to the lives of patients from around the state. A great group of nurses and midwives leading by example!!! #proudtobeEDNMS

🌟🌟🌟💕

Amazing Nikia!

Love your work Nikia!

How do I get them to you?
