This year, Lakeridge Health Bowmanville is replacing 119 IV pumps at a cost of $5,000 each. The Bowmanville Hospital Foundation is raising the funds needed to purchase the next generation of infusion devices called Smart Infusion Pumps. We are asking you to help by giving generously as you have done in the past.
Currently, the IV pumps at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville do not meet the Ontario College of Pharmacists and accreditation Canada standards which are considered “high priority standards” already in place at many community Hospitals across Ontario. With 90% of hospitalized patients receiving their medications through Intravenous (IV) infusion pumps, you can understand the urgency.
These new “Intelligent Infusion Devices” are not only revolutionizing the way nurses administer IV therapy to patients at precisely controlled rates in specific amounts, they will bring Lakeridge Health Bowmanville up to date with standards required for our Hospital.
Every piece of equipment is important in enhancing patient care and the patient experience at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville. This new technology completely changes the way patients receive care at our Hospital and, it positively influences the way in which our staff and physicians deliver care. Thank you for helping to make this possible.
