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

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 👍🏼

Since being signed off by RBWH palliative care unit and transferred to supervision by PCH palliative care unit nearly two weeks ago, he is STILL waiting for acceptance by PCH. The palliative care doctor at RBWH told us that PCH would be notified that day and that he'd receive a letter shortly from PCH.

Two of my girls are there Isabella Ray Hearley and Taylor Jane Ann Hodges and their beautiful friends xx in memory of my dad. Thank u prince charles palliative care
