This simple video for parents and carers from Meningococcal Australia outlines signs and symptoms. See how meningococcal disease is spread and simple precautions you can take to protect your family.
For those that missed the Live Q&A about meningococcal disease held on the Courier Mail webpage this morning, questions and answers can now be viewed in the 'comments' section of the link below. Further concerns or questions should be directed to your GP. Queenslanders can also phone and talk to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84).
You may be aware there have been recent cases of meningococcal disease reported. This is a severe but uncommon infection that occurs when meningococcal bacteria invade the body from the nose or throat. Close and prolonged contact with someone carrying the meningococcal bacteria in their nose or throat is usually needed to become infected. Children admitted to the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital with infectious diseases such as meningococcal disease do not pose any risk to other children or adults visiting the hospital. Our staff use stringent infection control precautions to protect themselves and to prevent transmission to others. In the case of meningococcal disease, after 24 hours of effective antibiotic treatment, the patient is no longer infectious. Families should know the signs and symptoms of the disease, but not be alarmed. The main symptoms include: • a high fever • severe headache • vomiting • muscle and joint pains • drowsiness • a rash that emerges and spreads rapidly. The rash initially looks like very small bruises just under the surface of the skin. Young babies may also have other symptoms, such as refusing to feed, irritability and dislike of being handled, and lethargy. Anyone with these symptoms, in particular a rapid spreading bruise-like rash, should seek medical attention immediately.

The Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital is rolling out the new ENFit connecting system (pictured), which is being introduced worldwide to ensure safer delivery of medications and enteral feeds. Families who currently receive supplies for nasogastric or enteral feeding and/or medication administration via this route will start to see these connections on syringes, extension sets and nasogastric tubes in their child’s clinical order. Our staff will teach families and carers how to use the ENFit system when they collect their consumables order. Further information about cleaning and caring for syringes and extension sets will also be provided. If you have any questions, please call the hospital's Central; Resources Service on 3068 4720 (business hours). Nurse clinicians will also be contacting families over the next few months to discuss further updates and changes.
