Hospital open evening




Last night the boys got to stay up late and visit the hospital's open house down on deck 3. We had lots of fun and got to see what the theatres and wards are like but also saw the sterilising rooms, CT scanner and X-ray - the places that aren't usually open for anyone to go to! We had a great time watching Tommy dress up as a surgeon and perform surgery on a toy monkey with the assistance of some very friendly scrub and circulating nurses! We also saw Captain Tim trying his hand at suturing on some foam under the watchful eye of one of the Surgeons! We got a lesson in intubation, got to see some fake eyes and wear big glasses. We all guessed how many pills were in the pharmacists' pot- Joshuas guess of 3 was sadly pretty far from the 900 or so there actually were! All in all it was very fun, gave the boys a good idea of the fantastic work done in the hospital and was a good reason to stay up late!
