Gaynor is ‘knot’ your average type of scout! Leaving behind her knowledge in rope-tying and canoeing, she instead leans on her quick-thinking as a theatre nurse scrub scout at #Redcliffe Hospital. 🏞😄🌲

She relies on her scout problem-solving skills to manage the incoming traumas through seven emergency theatres, attesting that no two days are ever the same.

“You never know what will be coming in with cases from orthopaedic to emergency traumas, maternity cases and more,” Gaynor said. 🚑

"My role is responsible for coordinating the incoming surgeries and making sure the surgeons have everything they need to just get in there and go.

“You become familiar with the preferences of surgeons including the positioning of patients, the specific instrumentation they like to use, and which ones prefer a quiet theatre versus a little Bob Dylan playlist.”

With so many exciting upgrades on the horizon at Redcliffe Hospital, including the 204-bed expansion, now is the time to join the team.

Great nurse and lovely person ❤️

Well done Gaynor x

Gaynor Lloyd 😘

Thanks gaynor for your support

Why don’t you get back to work all the staff that you have ridiculously mandated out of their jobs especially after the CDC’s complete back flip .There are many willing and able to return to their jobs which they did tirelessly and happily throughout the “ pandemic “ until the mandates

This is critical reading for anyone who organises and enters a theatre, but particularly in the maternity setting. Asking and following informed decisions and evidence should trump a surgeons preferences. C-sections are the most commonly performed surgery in the world, and the leading medical error in the world.

Good on you Gaynor

Yeah the boys 💙

Big brother Phoenix is absolutely thrilled at the arrival of his baby brother Lenny, who was born yesterday, 11th August at Redcliffe Hospital.

Mum Bec said “I got to choose the name this time around and loved the name Lenny.”

“His middle name is Thomas, after his great grandfather who recently passed, and we want to keep the name in the family.”

Mum Bec, dad Ryan and brother Phoenix are looking forward to going home and starting life as a family of 4.
