A Royal North Shore ICU Tradition…
As part of a long-standing tradition, on Melbourne Cup Day, the ICU at RNSH stages its own race. Nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, support service staff, visitors and varied others take part in a highly competitive relay event through the corridors of the ICU.
The thoroughbred horses are dusted off for the occasion, and jockeys in matching silks get down on their knees to fight for the coveted trophy.
The race is preceded by the Fascinator Cup, with creations made from expired medical equipment!
