New service eases hospital stress for Blue Care resident
A new Townsville University Hospital service has come to the aid of Blue Care Mount Louisa resident Maureen Baldock after a fall that left her with a fractured ankle. The State Government-funded Regional Aged Care Support Service (RaSS) was able to deliver acute care in her aged care home, saving a trip to hospital.
