For all the staff involved in the care of the major trauma patient brought to the department – it isn’t something the department sees often, but you did a great job as a team. Everyone was focused on what needed to be done, and did their role well, even though it was an unfamiliar and intimidating situation. Thank you to those who stepped up to the challenge, and to those who supported them doing so. Thank you to those who may have been away from the centre of what was happening but did important tasks like getting blood and finding equipment. Thank you as well to those who kept the rest of the department running in the meantime. That was teamwork, and although the patient will have a difficult course, I think we kept him as safe as possible through the Emergency part of his journey.

Fantastic team who leapt straight into action when faced with every clinician's worst nightmare patient: asthmatic cardiac arrest with no prewarning. You were all fluid and resilient and I was incredibly proud and grateful to lead a team of such amazing people who work so well together in the face of a challenging situation. Particular mention to resus nurse Rebecca who bagged the patient for 2.5 hours solid as he was initially impossible to transition to the ventilator. This patient was extremely unwell but will have had the best possible chance at a good outcome because of all of your care. What you all do matters. Thank you.

Anthony was NIC of a very very busy department 7/7/22 ND with very high acuity and practically no movement within the department. He remained, calm and approachable which ensured the shift ran as smoothly as it could. Always checking in with staff and communicating well. You are a pleasure to work with Anthony!

Alexis always remains calm even when the department is chaos. She is always approachable and will go out of her way to help others despite always being extremely busy. She recently covered rosters for me at the drop of a hat. Thank you for being so adaptable to change within the department and having a positive attitude.
