Mater Health CEO Sean Hubbard and his wife Karen visited with the Sisters of Mercy for morning tea and a cuppa to update them on life at Mater but came away with stories about the Sister's time on campus.
"As always we learnt so much from these visits including the days when medication given to patients was not even written down ... until one of the Sisters introduced medication charts!"
"How far we have come since those days," Mr Hubbard said.
Mr Hubbard describes his wife as an expert at many things, one of which is baking and she supplied chocolate cake, brownies, carrot cake, cheesecake and a South African delicacy 'Melktert' for the gathering.
