CONSTRUCTION HAS HEART
To celebrate Heart Month (February), we’re teaming up with local construction industry organizations to fund the replacement of Vital Signs Monitors at Sault Area Hospital.
Many of our vital signs monitors were 10+ years old, and needed to be retired this year. Newer tools can detect problems earlier and with more accuracy, providing caregivers with a better chance to deliver proactive care. Each new vital signs monitor should last for another 10 years, and would be put to use every day for the next decade.
Vital signs monitors are an essential tool - used every day, in every area of the hospital. They measure heart rate, breathing rate, temperature and blood pressure - giving our trained professionals insight into a patient's condition with a single glance. Caregivers rely on these machines to alert them when there is a problem, so they can intervene and provide care before a patient's condition worsens.
All month, SAHF will continue to share how local support makes an impact on cardiac care at Sault Area Hospital on our blog and social channels. Construction organizations interested in funding a monitor can make their pledge throughout the month of February.
Local support funds vital care.
Thank you to these generous organizations who have supported the purchase of vital signs monitors at Sault Area Hospital!
