The Broken Hill Hospital’s biomedical technicians have been busy preparing new equipment for use on the wards thanks to a generous donation by the Broken Hill Contribution Fund.
The Broken Hill Contribution Fund has donated $40,793 to the hospital to purchase a number of items for use across the health service, including:
- 6 x Welsh Allyn Connex Vital Signs Monitors ($4,234 each)
- 2 x Fresenius Injectomat Syringe Drivers ($2,400 each)
- 2 x NIKI T34 Syringe Drivers with lock box and case ($2,294 each), and
- 2 x Fresenius TIVA Anaesthetic Syringe Drivers ($3,000 each).
Most of the equipment has arrived and is currently in Biomed for acceptance testing and tagging.
Kevin Sinclair, BH Contribution Fund Secretary/Public Officer, said the Fund took great pleasure in making its bi-annual donation to the health service.
“It’s all equipment that benefits the health service and ultimately the community. The hospital has a wish list of equipment they would like and after prioritising what they would like, we’re more than happy to assist,” he said.
The Health Service is greatly appreciative of the BH Contribution Fund and its assistance over the years in purchasing equipment for the hospital.
