Last month, McCartney recorded her previous best of 4.85m at a Diamond Leage event in Oregon.
In Manheim, the 21-year-old cleared 4.86m before improving that height by six centimetres.
The height is one centimetre behind Jennifer Suhr’s best jump of the year.
All time, McCartney only trails Suhr, Sandi Morris’ personal best of 5m and Yelena Isinbayeva’s world record of 5.06m.
"Maybe this has galvanised them, hearing each other's stories and knowing they are not alone," say the nurses behind the Facebook group, New Zealand, please hear our voice.
