Yesterday she offered to create a behavioural management plan for a patient who was being admitted under another medical team - which was very much appreciated when the patient subsequently developed severe delirium. She also found collateral notes from other hospitals, unprompted.

Staffing has been significantly affected by COVID furlough, with the roster constantly changing and roster gaps being a daily occurrence. The entire team has banded together with additional shifts and roster swaps and working harder when gaps were unable to be filled. It's really tough at the moment when we were hoping to be through this, but if there's anything to be thankful for, it's a great team!
