In­jec­tion of nurses

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE nurs­ing team at Wide Bay Hos­pi­tal and Health Ser­vice fa­cil­i­ties has re­ceived a boost, with an ad­di­tional 52 post­grad­u­ates ap­pointed across the ser­vice at the start of 2015.

WBHHS chief ex­ec­u­tive Adrian Pen­ning­ton said the post­grad­u­ates were split evenly across the WBHHS, with 26 based on the Fraser Coast and 26 ap­pointed to Bund­aberg and the ru­ral fa­cil­i­ties.

“It is won­der­ful to wel­come our new post­grad­u­ates as they be­come part of the WBHHS nurs­ing team,” he said.

“Our nurses are a vi­tal part of the clin­i­cal team across our var­i­ous sites and their re­spec­tive wards.

“It is the WBHHS nurses who are front and cen­tre of en­sur­ing Wide Bay pa­tients re­ceive high-qual­ity health care and are well looked af­ter while at our fa­cil­i­ties.”

The post­grad­u­ate nurses have stag­gered start­ing dates, with 30 al­ready work­ing within the WBHHS and the re­main­ing 22 start­ing in the com­ing months.

WBHHS said there was the pos­si­bil­ity of fur­ther post­grad­u­ate nurse ap­point­ments dur­ing a mid-year in­take.
