Tuesday 9 March: Hospital Safety during the Pandemic, Central Safety Group  
Speaker: Christina Rennick, St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne

When the COVID-19 crisis exploded just over a year ago, the demand for special safety measures in our hospitals was massive, sudden and urgent. Christina Rennick, General Manager Health, Safety and Wellbeing at Melbourne’s St Vincent’s Hospital, will do a presentation via Zoom at 11 am on 9 March about how her workplace responded.

The hospital has a big and complex structure, a workforce of 7,000, and a large number of patients and visitors to protect. Beyond implementing large-scale basic requirements for Covid protection, the safety team had to develop new rules and systems, learn from experience and adapt. This has been ongoing as knowledge of the coronavirus unfolds and the situation in the community changes.

Christina will talk not only about physical safety measures, but also the need to monitor and manage the wellbeing of people in the hospital system during this time.
