SCGH ED has all the Obstetric Equipment set up in ready-to-grab packs in our Pink Boxes (click to reveal contents list):
These live in the Clean Utility Room on the bottom shelf (to the right as you walk in). The Delivery Bundle box contains a helpful Pink Manual with all the O&G information you might need whilst working on the floor. These resources were set up by Suzanne Rosenberg, Clinical Nurse & Registered Midwife. Suzanne, and friends, talk through the SCGH ED obstetric resources in the following four password protected videos.
