THE quote of the day belongs to one of the navy personnel from USS Green Bay, who visited Cairns Hospital in November. After visiting our beautiful OPERA Ward and taking part in the singing group, she said: “That’s why they call it the Opera Ward”. There were smiles and perhaps some wet eyes during a beautiful round of well-known songs including at least one Elvis number. One of the patients was heard to say she wouldn’t need any therapy, after the joy she obtained from the visit. On their day off, the visitors were grateful of the opportunity to see some parts of the hospital and learn about the amazing job performed by everyone who works there. The visitors were particularly enthralled with the dementia seals, the chat with our chaplain, and interacting with locals.
