Welcome bark Sir Ralphalot! 🐶 We've got a special #ShoutoutSaturday for you today. This week TPCH's Children's Emergency Department welcomed the return of therapy dog Ralph after his break from the office during COVID-19.

Paw-fessionals like Ralph are brought in to help moderate anxiety among children when they arrive at hospital. For many kids, it might be the first time they're experiencing medical care in this way, so therapy dogs like Ralph are there to help relieve stress and provide emotional support.

Little Addison loved playing with Ralph while she was having her broken arm treated!

Thank you, Ralph and the team at Delta Therapy Dogs for visiting! 😍😍

Parents Dan and Christina were over the moon to meet their baby girl, Isla. But no one was more excited than two-year-old Louis, Isla's loud and proud big brother. 💕 Isla was born at RBWH on 11 May, 10.54 pm weighing 7.1 lbs.

"Today's the first time Louis has seen her, but he's been walking around the house saying 'baby Isla!' for a few days now," Dan said.

"It was a really quick birth, three hours from the couch at home to holding Isla. We're hoping we get to go home tonight!" Christina said.

We're sending lots of love to this beautiful family of four this #FeelgoodFriday! 🏡✨

New Caboolture Hospital doctor Jack Cooper has gone from being a COVID-19 positive patient to working on the COVID-19 frontline! Jack contracted COVID while working in Melbourne last year and found himself on the opposite side of the fence - as a patient relying on his peers to take care of him. 🏥

“My stay in hospital with COVID-19 showed me how I want to be as a clinician when I am caring for someone – many clinicians would talk about me but not to me, which was uncomfortable, as I knew the medical terminology they were using and what it meant,” he said.

“In theory, I think all doctors know we need to directly talk to our patients and involve them in their care, but having been on the patient side of things recently reminded me of the importance of this and how I’ll approach my role.”

We think Jack's experience will only solidify his patient care skills! 🤗 To hear Jack's story in his own words, check out his feature in the Courier Mail: bit.ly/3o0NPnj
