I was under the impression that Penrith was an LGA of concern and got priority vaccinations (if aged 16-39)?...

I do not, and I do not comment on novel drugs here as I am not versed in the research

Currently, it's shift work, so it works out to be 40. Half of them are night shifts.

That's a question for ethicists, and I don't think there is an answer which will lead to good outcomes. I honestly don't know.

1. These are not bloods which I have checked for ICU patients - I don't have the evidence on this, but I would have doubts that replacing...

I have not myself, but I'm pretty junior. My bosses might know, but I will leave that information to them for now, and they can let us know...
27/08/2021 - 16:19
Glad to hear it! I don't. The information which is readily available and probably most important, is ICU admissions. The NSW press...
27/08/2021 - 16:18
No I do not know - and if someone has a suspected side effect, they would present to their GP or ED. I'm not at all familiar or involved...

I don't know, that's something which you'd have to look up. Alternatively a quick call to the public health unit should be able to get you...
27/08/2021 - 16:10
Yes! Glad to hear you have made that decision, and I think that's a very intelligent way of looking at risk. One thing I will add, is that...
27/08/2021 - 16:08
I don't think this is a good idea... Some people do ok with COVID, some people do miserably. There are people who did miserably in the last...

"Open up, vaccinate the elderly, vulnerable, and those who want it." - the vulnerable population this time round is actually the entire...

I don't know, but you can bet pretty much every tertiary hospital in Sydney has a covid ward and COVID ICU
27/08/2021 - 15:51
I try to limit how often I go to the shops, but no, I don't identify myself as a HCW, and no, COVID ICU, ward does not count as a hotspot...
27/08/2021 - 15:50
I'm not sure if I (myself as an individual person) could have enacted different actions at that time, to make the current situation now,...

Yes, but that means keeping the clinic open around the clock, which stretches our nursing staff further
27/08/2021 - 15:27
As above, cannot comment, have not looked after children.
27/08/2021 - 15:27
Yes.....
27/08/2021 - 09:15
Good god, I am very sorry to hear what you have been through, that is awful. If anyone knows how it feels to be in ICU for respiratory...
27/08/2021 - 09:14
Yeah, you probably should - bottom of page...
27/08/2021 - 09:12
Zero because you won't ever come to the unit if you don't have COVID and don't work there :) It's very contagious from what I've heard,...
27/08/2021 - 09:07
You sound angry and confused, I get why you feel that way. It does seem however, that you and I think in very different ways - the idea...
27/08/2021 - 08:08
Zero. Nobody has ever confessed to me in the ICU that they were against vaccination. The most common reason I hear by far is 'I was waiting...
27/08/2021 - 07:45
I think you're doing well! Pretty much following the public health guidelines is all we can do
27/08/2021 - 07:44
I have never seen a patient or heard anecdotally from a colleague re: the rare clotting disorder associated with AZ, sorry - it's quite...
27/08/2021 - 07:42
Like literally at your house? What kinds of treatment are you thinking of? I did hear about the unfortunate three people having died on the...
27/08/2021 - 07:41
Not that often actually! Our hours make it quite difficult to get surveillance testing done given we work in the hours of the clinic being...
