ACTING Clinical Nurse Consultant, Lucy Trojkovic said the trolleys will support the team when responding to clinical emergencies on the ward and in the hospital.

 

“The Rapid Response Team consists of clinical staff who are trained to respond to urgent calls for help when a patient is experiencing serious deterioration,” Ms Trojkovic said.

 

“The purpose-built trolleys are specifically organised to make it easier for the team to access the equipment they need.

 

“Each trolley is equipped with everything needed to manage a patient’s airway and circulation, along with personal protective equipment (PPE).”

 

The Wyong Hospital Auxiliary has a long history of supporting Wyong Hospital.

 

Donations since 1999 (available records) have totalled more than $575,000 which have been used to enhance the care and comfort we provide to our patients.

 

“The stall they have at the front of the hospital is much-loved by staff and visitors alike,” Ms Trojkovic said.

 

“We know they dedicate a huge amount of time and work to their fundraising efforts and we are very grateful to them.

 

“Thank you to each of the members for everything they do to support us.”
