Nurse Visit to Community Kids South Lake

At Community Kids South Lake, we had a visit from Nurse Jo from the PMH Hospitalisation program. She came to talk to the children about hospital and what it is like there. Nurse Jo told us about her work and why we should not be scared to go to the hospital. She showed us some pictures and medical instruments. After the talk had finished, Nurse Jo let us have a look at some of the equipment she had bought in for us. The children took turns at the different stations. They had the opportunity to look after Phoebe, who was a patient of Nurse Jo, they took her blood pressure and even gave her medication. Advait pretended he had hurt his leg and was walking around using the crutches Nurse Jo bought in. Oliver enjoyed dressing up as a Doctor.
