People Helping People

“People Helping People”

September 11 2014

“It’s remarkable to see communities and local residents pull together and make these types of services available and accessible. It’s really people helping people – community members donate to the Foundation for hospital equipment and, in some cases, those same members end up benefiting from the equipment they contributed to buying.”

“We would like to thank all of our supporters for making a difference in the lives of families in our community.”

– Garth Griffiths

New Equipment Purchase

Palliative Care Versacare Bed

Palliative Care Versacare Bed

June 25 2014

Our Palliative Care Centre at the Hinton Healthcare Centre is proud to offer patients a Versacare bed.

Repositioning of patients has never been easier, which in turn will diminish the number of back pain injuries that our nurses and care givers tend to suffer from. Our Versacare bed offers state-of-the-art technology enabling high-quality care for patients through patient safety, mobilization, and skin care.

We look forward to buying more Versacare beds for our Palliative Care Centre. The comfort of both our patients and staff is very important to us.

New Equipment Purchase

ER Slit Lamp

ER Slit Lamp

March 14 2014

Thanks to all of our donors who contributed to bring in our new binocular microscope that provide the examiner with a 3D view of the eye (see the photo below). This piece of equipment provides greater magnification and illumination than most handheld devices and allows our Emergency Room to diagnose a number of traumatic and non-traumatic eye disorders.

A thorough eye exam is important, regardless of the severity of an injury. Many common systemic diseases can reveal themselves in an in-depth eye exam, such as diabetes.

Make sure to get your eyes examined every year!

Our new scope is designed for a wide range of intubation techniques and can be used in a variety of ways. This device has a light attached to the end of a flexible insert that can help to determine issues in a patient suffering from issues with either their throat or the rectum.

This purchase, made possible by your donations, means the community of Hinton now has more equipment to serve you better!
