CEO David Meates announces that Christchurch Hospital Hagley was blessed last week – and attendees took care to ensure proper physical distancing throughout! He also gives special thanks to those who are working during the Nationwide Level 4 Alert Lockdown period to get the Intensive Care Unit finished. David reflects on the first death attributed to COVID-19 on the West Coast yesterday. He expresses his condolences, and thanks the staff who helped her during her time in care.
This issue also looks at the how a Nephrology Pharmacist, inspired by their own artistry, is encouraging staff to use the lockdown to get creative and pursue activities like drawing, painting, jewelry-making or taking photos; how two Christchurch Women’s Hospital registrars came up with an easy-to-remember video (set to the tune of Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees) on how staff can safely put on and take off personal protective equipment; details the arrival of two donated incubators to a wildlife centre in New South Wales, where they are now being used to incubate wildlife injured in the bushfires; and much more.
