They are a tight-knit crew, and no matter how busy things are they’ve always got time for good health.

Congratulations to our Emergency Department team, which was the first at BRHS to have 95 percent of its team members get their flu shot. (Here’s a pic of a few of them this week revelling in their win.)

Here at BRHS we’ve been providing free flu shots for our staff and encouraging them to get a flu shot as part of our commitment to providing quality care to the local community.

By being the first department to hit the 95 percent mark, the ED wins a $100 cash prize to spend on something for the ward.

(We suggest a few of those big foam fingers that say “WE’RE  NUMBER 1!”)

Good on you, ED.

We’ve put on a few extra flu vaccinations sessions next week, so all staff are encouraged to get their flu shot!
