    Otherwise they were much of a muchness I think.

    Ah, well in that case I'd say go Mater.
    I'm an nurse and as a nurse, I wasn't particularly impressed with the nurses at RNSPH.
    Maybe my expectations were too high but as a FTM, I thought I might get a bit more direction.
    Also, unless I buzzed for something I'd never see them.
    Maybe it's a different type of nursing but from my training you would see your patient at least every hour if not more frequently.

    Thanks so much for this !

    I have been told this actually from other friends that are nurses and that NSP do tend to have agency nurses, moreso than the mater.

    NSP also have many more rooms and Mater seems to have a more homey feel...

    Isn't that talking about special care which is level 2 care same as at NSP? Although it does sound state of the art. I don't think it's the same level as the NICU at RNSH
