Birthday boy Krispin celebrated his special day yesterday by getting the COVID-19 vaccine! As the Director of Infectious Diseases at RBWH, he couldnt have been more excited to be one of the first to receive the vaccine. 💉🎈🍰

On my birthday last year COVID-19 was starting to really ramp up and I was worried about what the year had in store for us, he said.

But this year I got to celebrate my birthday as well as our vaccine rollout at Metro North! It was a great day and I cant wait to see the impact this will have in our communities as more and more Queenslanders get vaccinated.

Welcome to the world, Evelyn! 🐣 On 24 Feb, little Evelyn was born to first time parents Emma and Sam at #RBWH who were thrilled to finally meet her. 

She weighed 9.89 lbs and was born at 2.02 am, but she certainly kept us waiting! Evelyn was due a day earlier and I had about a 16 hour labour, Emma said.

Join us in wishing Emma, Sam and Evelyn a safe trip home! #FeelgoodFriday 💕

A new Ambassador program trial is underway at RBWH, and the team in 9A South couldn’t be happier! 🤗 Ambassadors like Evile work with the nursing team to identify patients who may need some extra support as they recover in hospital. Their role is to help patients feel safe and secure by having a chat and re-orientate them if they are stressed or confused after surgery, meaning that the busy nursing team can focus on their clinical duties. Thanks to all our Ambassadors for making our patients feel safe! ❤️🏥
