Welcome to the St George Hospital Department of Paediatrics!
This page is for our JMOs and students. It contains links to (nearly) everything you need to know about a term at St George.
The St George Rules
1. There’s always someone to call.
It’s ok not to know. If you’re not sure about something, or you’re not sure who to ask – call us yourself. There’s a paediatrician on-call 24 hours per day, every day.
2. We care for our patients, each other and ourselves.
There’s no place for rudeness, bullying or harassment on this team. If you ever have concerns about the way you, a colleague or a patient has been treated please speak to any consultant, any time.
3. Handover matters.
Handover is in the morning, afternoon, and at night shift. There’s a written handover list on the computers. Please take the time to handover thoroughly so we can all take care of the patients we share.
This video was made on 31st March 2020. It describes our current plan for attending newborn deliveries for women who are COVID-19 positive or are being treated as such.
This is a fluid situation so please make sure you are up to date with any changes to this plan by attending handover daily.
We strongly recommend you look at the following resources before you start or early in the term.
