The Spirit of Christmas
This week, at Epworth Richmond, a Mr Santa Claus was unexpectedly admitted to theatre, suffering from severe abdominal distention, acute pain, and confusion.
Mr Claus did not appear festive at all. As he was administered the anaesthetic, he mumbled something about a Grinch.
Mr Claus required an emergency Candy-Canectomy (an uncommon procedure, but fatal if not performed immediately). He also required a blood transfusion, ventilation & specialised surgical intervention – all which took place in Sim Surgery in the Education Centre on Level 5 Cato Wing.
Mr Claus has now fully recovered and ready for Christmas Day.
It is an annual tradition at Epworth for team members to participate in the competition to decorate our sites with an enthusiastic Christmas flair.
With 1 in 10 infants now developing a food allergy, being conscious of what you are buying and how you prepare food is more important than ever.
National Volunteer Week 20 – 26 May in 2019 was marked with the theme ‘Making a world of difference’ – and what a world of difference our volunteers make here at Epworth Geelong!
One third of all infertility cases have been linked solely to issues with the male partner. Male infertility is a condition where the male in a relationship affects the child bearing ability of the woman.
