A new three month exchange program with the RBWH will expose Logan Hospital Emergency Department staff to tertiary trauma cases in return for experience in paediatric emergency care.
ED NUM Muireann Wynne said Logan Hospital this week welcomed RBWH RN Callum Hughes while RN Amy Harvey began her time in Metro North.
"I've only worked at the Royal where there is limited paediatric exposure so this was a great opportunity to expand my experience with that demographic," Callum said.
"I've also heard good things about Logan so I was excited to be able to come to work here."
Amy said she was also excited by the opportunity to work in one of Queensland's biggest and busiest trauma centres.
"This will be a unique experience that will give me exposure to trauma nursing, and I hope that by being involved in this rotation I will gain confidence, transferable knowledge and broaden my skill set as an ED Nurse," she said.
"I hope to use what I’ve learnt here to educate others to improve care, management and outcomes of trauma patients who present to Logan ED."
Muireann said nurses involved in the exchange set learning objectives and goals for each site and would deliver education in the exchange ED and to their own teams once they returned.
