Generous donation boosts equipment in hospital units
STAFF at Kingaroy Hospital have thanked the Lions Club of Nanango for their generous donation to the Women's and Children's Unit. The club donated a Masimo Monitor worth $3960.
The machine can be used to take the vital signs of newborns, infants, children and adults alike; however, it will be put to good use in the Women's and Children's Unit of the hospital.
"This new machine will be in addition to another similar piece of equipment that we already have in use," Nurse Unit Manager Stacey Smith said.
"The additional machine will be used to monitor oxygen saturations and heart rates on patients."
Ms Smith said she was pleased that the Lions Club specifically chose to donate to the Women's and Children's Unit. "We are a busy unit so to have another monitor in use will be of a great help to staff, and patients," she said.
On behalf of the hospital, Ms Smith thanked the Lions Club of Nanango for their donation and support of the Kingaroy Hospital.
