FWLHD staff embrace Christmas decorating cheer
Wednesday, 23rd December, 2020
Staff across the Far West LHD ramped up the Christmas cheer with this year’s Christmas Decoration Competition and really challenged the judging panel in choosing a winner!
The standard was excellent and the panel thanked everyone for their fantastic efforts.
After many hours considering their decision, the winner was awarded to Surgical Ward at the Broken Hill Health Service (BHHS) with their extensive decorations throughout their ward, shown in their video entry.
The judges felt that the innovative approach to the “Christmas Bomb” idea as captured on video was humorous and innovative.
The runner-up was awarded to Health information Analytics and Performance Unit at the Community Health Centre (CHC).
The integrated and themed summer Christmas approach was outstanding.
In a close fought competition with just a hairs breadth in the final result there is also a need for a number of honourable mentions.
Teams that utilised staff as Christmas decorations are to be commended for these walking ornaments that are a credit to the health service!
This included Medical Ward (BHHS), Pharmacy (BHHS) and ICU (BHHS).
Also, the teams at the CHC including the Clinical Ops, HR and Clinical Redesign team and the Allied Health/ Community Engagement teams.
The judging panel understands that there was fierce rivalry between the teams that may have involved some enthusiastic ‘relocating’ of decorations, but this could not be verified.
The judging team found this year’s decision an almost impossible task and would like to again thank everyone for their contribution to raising Christmas cheer for staff and patients alike!
We would of course like to wish everyone a safe and joyous Christmas and New Year in what has been a very challenging 2020.
Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.
