YOU Are Vital…

 If you have been in a hospital, you have had your vital signs checked.  This season, your donation to the Breath of Spring campaign will support the purchase of three state of the art Vital Signs Monitors for the Medical Ward at Kootenay Lake Hospital.

This essential equipment records a patient’s blood pressure, temperature, and oxygen saturation levels.  Every patient needs to have their vital signs taken frequently throughout their stay in the hospital.  The addition of multiple monitors will reduce the need to share equipment between patients, thus reducing the chance of infection.  These monitors will connect to the Central Monitoring System that was recently purchased thanks to your generous donations.

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