Thanks for helping everyone! We've managed to identify the nurse as Coral Ives thanks to a family member who reached out. 😊

This is my mum TPCH, I work in the pharmacy there now ... she really loved working with the heart babies ...

So nice to see this picture! Thank you 🙏

This lady’s daughter works at Prince Charles Hospital now as well Irene Russell

Thats my nana Coral Ives Noelene Moloney Irene Russell John Ives Donald Ives Julie-Anne Selfe

The old heart ward at PCH was a wonderful ward this photo brought a smile to me.

😍😍😍 beautiful loved nan 👵

Shel Joy I reckon they need to reinstate the old uniform policy for Nurses 🤣🤣

Dorothy Radford I’m sure this brings back some memories for you too!

Sue Beirne

Trent Eversham

Margaret Morton do you know them?

Kathy Greenslade this you?

I agree, at least you knew who was a nurse and who was the cleaner, but these days the nurses are expected to do everything. In that case bring back the good old days when nurses were in starched white uniforms and each ward was cleaned everyday with metho and they had student nurses making beds and doing bed pans. ☹️

Mum was at TPCH for at least 30 years she was such a dedicated worker.. she was in neo natal baby ward for years then she went to geriatrics as it was called then for a long time too. Mum passed away about six years ago now ...

My son had a baby rattle like that he was born in 1974 , love these pictures

Be nice to find out who the baby is 👍🏼
