The welcomed donation has enabled the hospital to purchase three rehabilitation chairs, a super stroller walker, a Sara Stedy transfer aid and a gutter frame, all used to help patients mobilise on the ward; a ROHO cushion for palliative patients to relieve pressure; and two transit wheelchairs for the Emergency Department.
“All the items purchased from this kind donation are now in use at the hospital and are a great help to our patients and to our Medical, Nursing and Allied Health Lakes District Hospital patients benefit from generous donation teams caring for them,” says Operations Manager Emily Nelson who wanted to thank Lake Lodge of Ophir for their generosity.
“We have a wonderful team at Lakes District Hospital, it’s such a positive place to work, everyone supports each other and is passionate about providing the best care we can for our patients,” says Ellie Trees, Occupational Therapist.
“This extends beyond the hospital to care given in the community by Allied Health, District Nursing and the Hospice teams who assist unwell and palliative patients to remain or return home. This donation goes a long way in enhancing the care we provide.”
