PVH is a small hospital with a big heart.
We invite you to explore five projects that would each have a significant
impact on the health of your community.
EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT CARDIAC CARE
Arctic Sun Temperature Management System: $60,000
The Arctic Sun Temperature Management System is a non-invasive temperature
management system that is used to induce hypothermia in patients that
have experienced sudden cardiac arrest or who are at risk for ischemic
brain damage. Therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to prevent complications
and improve outcomes.
Three Fetal Heart Rate Monitors: $50,000
There are over 400 babies born each year in PVH’s Family Birthing
Center. New state-of-the-art fetal monitors will read uterine and fetal
activity (including fetal heart rate) and have enhanced features for monitoring
temperature, oxygen saturation, ECG, and non-invasive blood pressure.
The monitors will allow PVH to continue to deliver a high quality birthing
BioCon-750 Bladder Scanner: $10,000
A bladder scanner is a portable, hand-held ultrasound device that can perform
a quick, easy and non-invasive scan of the bladder to measure urine retention.
It is a helpful tool in avoiding costly and invasive procedures such as
catheterization or cystoscopy. By reducing the frequency of these invasive
procedures, the risk of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI)
is greatly reduced.
Patient Channel Subscription: $35,000
Patient Channel is the largest and most comprehensive in-hospital health education television
network used by healthcare providers today. Access to the educational
content of the
Patient Channel will improve health outcomes, increase patient satisfaction, meet compliance
requirements, and reduce hospital readmissions. This subscription would
be active for 5-years.
Physical upgrades: $100,000
With nearly 19,000 Emergency Department visits every year, PVH has stayed
ahead of the curve with life-saving advances. The Emergency Department
is the primary gateway to our hospital. We are planning a series of upgrades
to the ED’s physical environment to better ensure dignity, privacy,
safety and comfort for patients and their families.
