Let's give it up for our TPCH anaesthetics team, who have made a sustainable switch from reticulated nitrous oxide anaesthetic to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ♻️💚

Dr Mary and her peers teamed up with Green Metro North, including sustainability manager Kellie, to decommission the use of N2O for the greater good of the environment.

“Anaesthetic gases make up five per cent of total healthcare emissions, of which nitrous oxide accounts for approximately 75 per cent of the total emissions from anaesthetic gases,” Dr Mary said.

“Although nitrous oxide is a safe anaesthetic gas, it is prone to leaking from piped infrastructure even when the reticulation system is well serviced and maintained."

#ShoutoutSaturday 👏 to the team for being Queensland's first hospital to make this greener swap!

Curiously, what is it being replaced with? Does this mean it will be replaced with something else in birthing suites as well, or not used at all?

Go Kelli & team.

A Mental Health Crisis Stabilisation Facility is expected to open later this year at The Prince Charles Hospital, providing immediate short-term care for those in need.

This new space will feature a comfortable environment for individuals in crisis and provide access to a multidisciplinary team, inclusive of the lived experience workforce. 🏠

As a social worker in the short stay unit, Jade will help to provide care for patients with complex mental health issues and support for their families and carers by using therapeutic interventions within a recovery and trauma informed framework.

"It’s such a privilege to work with people who trust you to walk alongside them and support them in their journey, and to see the resiliency in those that I work with every day, it is extremely motivating and rewarding," Jade said.

TPCH is looking for a social worker to join the soon to open facility team. If this sounds like you, then apply here: bit.ly/4ahopsY

Will those suffering from suicidal ideation be able to go to this facility rather than the ED?

Have Social Workers employed by QLD Health previously had clinical input on treatment plans and management of consumers who for example may be experiencing Domestic and Family Violence? I have never seen any written evidence of support given directly for Domestic Violence, in any of the three hospitals I have been admitted to in QLD, spanning 6 mental health admissions in total, nor a discharge plan that might outline input or suggestions relating directly to plans for continuity of care for Domestic Violence support from any Social Workers, doctor's or specialists involved in my Mental Health care? I also have never seen any Domestic Violence Liaison Officers, that are meant to be available to support DV victims in all QLD hospitals, in any of my admissions either. Sadly, unless a patient reports concerns to Police, and many are unwilling for various reasons, it is hard to provide proof after Mental Health Admissions, that the reasons for admission are directly attributed to Domestic Violence abuse!

It would be great to see Metro North considering to employ Accredited Rehabilitation Counsellors in the unit as well!

And peer support in the model of care?? What’s the discharge/continuity of care plan/strategy

This is so needed, thank you

Jade is a lovely caring and committed Social Worker for Mental Health . Any patient in her care should feel privileged they have a person like her looking after them.

So needed. More are needed. I hope there are follow up procedures in place.... Great work Jade.

Well done Jade Your awesome 👏

Great work Jade!

Great work Jade.

Go Jade!!

It's great to see Jades smiling face at TPCH

too late for me but I hope it helps others in this area

Awesome work
