Light Up the Hospital!
Posted: October 27, 2022

This season, help Kootenay Lake Hospital monitor our most vulnerable patients. Your donation to the Light Up the Hospital! campaign will support the purchase of a Central Monitoring System (CMS) for the Medical Ward.

The CMS will provide medical staff with instant access to the patient’s oxygen level, heart rate, and can be programmed to automatically take blood pressures at regular intervals. This timely communication about the patient’s condition, sudden changes and possible complications allows the medical team to provide the best level of care. For patients in isolation, the CMS will reduce the need for staff to constantly enter the room, while reducing the need to share equipment, thus lowering the risk of communicable illness exposure for staff and patient.

Any funds raised in excess of our goal will be directed to the purchase of other priority medical equipment for Kootenay Lake Hospital.
