This Giving Tuesday, we are asking for your support for the purchase of new vital signs monitors for our hospital patients.
Monitors that provide ongoing or intermittent measurements of a patient’s temperature, heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure are essential for any hospital environment. Recent strides in telemetry technology have made it necessary to upgrade the hospital’s current system. State-of-the-art, identical units will result in greater accuracy, reliability, and consistency across all settings of care from the emergency department, to the inpatient and rehabilitation rooms.
The total price of the desired units is $28,000. A very generous kickoff donation of $5,030 brings the total to be raised down to $22,970. Every donation matters!
“Living in a rural area should not limit a person’s access to the highest quality technology in critical and inpatient care. With these new monitors, our highly trained nurses can provide the best quality care regardless of our physical location.”
— Nurse Manager Rebecca Lapointe, RN
