As the holiday season ramps up, Caboolture security guards Vic and Corey are the elves behind the scenes keeping everyone safe! ❤️

For some, Christmas and the holiday period can see increased use of alcohol and drugs and we find we have a lot more patients presenting to hospital, often in a distressed state.

"Effective communication is key, we try to empathise and assist everybody in a safe way - patient safety is paramount," Vic said.

"We do things differently here, we want to be seen as approachable and non-intimidating, don’t be afraid of the blue shirts." ✨

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for baby Rory, who was born six weeks early ensuring she snuck in more of the holiday festivities!

Since her birth, she's been spending her time under the watchful eye of the Caboolture Hospital #NICU team.🎅

"We don't have a definite date just yet, but I do know she will be home for Christmas, and we are so excited that we get to spend it with her," mum Summah said. 🎄 #FeelgoodFriday

We're decking the halls at #STARS today as nurses Shania and Samantha show us that 'tis the season to be jolly . 🎄

Many of our patients won't be home for Christmas, but our staff always make it their goal to bring Christmas into the hospital.

"It can be hard for some patients who are here over this period, which is why it's special for us, as we get to bring them some Christmas cheer," Samantha said.

Tell us in the comments how you'll brighten the festive period for your loved ones in hospital. 🌟

Funky socks! My husband Des is in 4A and has been in there since the end of August. It’s become a bit of a routine for the nurses or physios to pick out his funky socks for the day. I’ve begun his Christmas collection for him. 🎅 ⭐️ 🎄

This is a great photo, with such great nurses.

Oh Sam, she's definitely my favourite nurse. She brightens up my day. She really didn't tell me to say that 😅

This is a great post! We love STARS.

YES QUEEN!!!! Sam Atchison

Australian males have an estimated one in six chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer by the age of 85 years of age.

If you think about all the men in your life, this is an alarming figure.

The good news is that Dr Nick and his team in urology at #Redcliffe Hospital are paving the way for minimally invasive prostate procedures and treatments for prostate issues, including benign prostate enlargements.

"Green light laser treatment is a new option - it’s a minimally invasive procedure that evaporates the enlarged prostate tissue,” he said. 🟢

“The procedure is associated with fewer side effects and quicker recovery than traditional surgery.”

If you’d like to join Dr Nick in working across prostate health, as well as other urological issues, apply now to join the team as a senior medical officer: bit.ly/3OdNI4Y

He is a very good and caring doctor he looks after his patients. I was so happy to have him for me .

Marvel‘s of modern medicine. Less longer stays in hospital. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

How to get on any of Redcliffe's Urulogy waiting lists, mystery for me....maybe not being able to pee at all is not enough to get placed on a list. Several weeks now with Catherter in and still no doctor seen me at RCH. I am solely relying on my GP. Asked for medication and asked for Ultrasound so at least something is being. I am very disappointed with RCH, been in void clinic and failed which stands to reason as nothing is done. Next clinic 3 weeks from now at least via GP ,3 weeks of meds but I have been told 6 weeks before seeing any results. Thinking of finding private Urologist and pay for any treatments.

Dr David will bend over backwards to help his patients requiring a visit to the RBWH hyperbaric chamber. 🤿 🦪

Dating back to the early 20th century, hyperbaric medicine was originally used to treat divers with decompression sickness or ‘the bends’ as it is commonly known. Now we see plenty of these patients – as well as a range of others including those with vascular conditions or patients needing to speed up the wound healing process.

“The treatment involves delivering 100% oxygen to the patient in a pressurised chamber that is equivalent to two and a half times normal atmospheric pressure,” Dr Kramer said.

“Being in the chamber can feel a lot like taking a short flight in an airplane. Patients need to pop their ears as the pressure increases and spend the next the two hours watching a movie, reading a book or having a snooze, before the pressure is gradually released and they carry on with their day.” 🌊

I loved my time as a hyperbaric nurse. Seeing the outcomes was so rewarding!!

Sounds like a good place for a night shift 😴 🤣

Not only is Dr David an awesome Doctor and person but his photography skills are amazing!!!

Shame access is so restrictive, consumers report excellent outcomes with private services who don’t make them jump through as many hoops
