Friends and colleagues took to Facebook to honour Ms Davey, who was in the process of moving to Cairns following the recent death of her mother.
«(It) was so nice to start to hear your laugh again of late, and how excited you were to be heading to Cairns,» one colleague wrote.
«I think I will just pretend you’ve headed off early, it will be so much easier than to believe reality.
«Your ED family will miss you terribly, my only comfort is to know you will be with your dear mum again.»
A Gold Coast Health spokeswoman said she was shocked and saddened by the news that a member of their nursing staff had been critically injured.
«This is obviously a very difficult time for staff, particularly those in our emergency department and intensive care unit, who are coming to terms with this news and who are currently providing medical care to their colleague,» she said.
«It is always confronting for our staff when one of their colleagues and friends is hurt or unwell, and we understand this event will touch many staff members across the health service.
«Our focus now is to do everything possible to support our staff as they come to terms with what has occurred.»
