Exciting news … it’s our very first #FeelgoodFriday with newborn twins! Rebekah, one of our very own enrolled nurses at Caboolture Hospital, gave birth to identical twin boys last week. 💕

Born at 36.2 weeks, Judah (2.5kg) and Asher (2.9kg) have spent the last 6 days in the Special Care Nursery (SCN) before spending the night with mum last night. This happy little family will head home today.

We wish Rebekah all the best as she settles in at home with her new little ones. 🏡🐣

#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! 🚑
