Fundraising Initiatives in Canada – Our Needs List
VEIN FINDER - $3000 (1 needed)
A Vein Finder assists nurses to more accurately find veins when initiating access to veins for IV fluids and/or IV medications. Some patients are difficult to find good veins to access, especially children.
BARIATRIC WHEELCHAIR SCALE - $3254 (1 needed)
Currently we do not have means of obtaining an actual weight of patients who are over 250 pounds. Weight is important for prescribing certain drugs and referring for diagnostic tests.
It is important to ensure the scale can accommodate a wheelchair.
SLEEPER CHAIRS - $1500 (2 needed)
Sleeper chairs can be moved to the bedside for family if they choose to stay overnight with a loved one.
