your your GIFT, IMPACT PALI MOMI MEDICAL CENTER: Blanket Warmers Thanks to your generous donations, Pali Momi was able to purchase new blanket warmers for oncology patients. Treatments can last for several hours and infusions can make patients feel cold. The warming cabinet will heat stored blankets, enhancing the care and comfort for patients and contributing to their overall health and recovery. KAPI`OLANI MEDICAL CENTER FOR WOMEN & CHILDREN: Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Donations to Kapi`olani will help educate parents about, and hopefully prevent, shaken baby syndrome. Kapi`olani utilizes the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome educational DVDs and informational booklets from the "Period of PURPLE Crying" program, which helps parents and caregivers understand and deal with increased infant crying. These will be given to parents of newborns before they leave Kapi`olani. WILCOX MEDICAL CENTER: Telemetry Monitors Gifts to Wilcox’s Emergency Department were used to purchase new telemetry monitors. Cardiac telemetry is the continuous monitoring of a patient’s heart rate and rhythm. Patients with ongoing heart problems, recovering from heart events or at risk are watched to keep doctors informed of their progress. The additional monitors will expand Wilcox’s capability to serve the community. STRAUB MEDICAL CENTER: Patient Transport Trolley and Esophageal Scope At Straub, donations helped the Endoscopy Suites buy a patient transport trolley and esophageal scope equipment. Purchases such as these help the Straub staff safely transport patients and allows the Endoscopy Suites team to fulfill its goal of providing patients with the best medical information through rapid and accurate examination of the entire digestive tract. 7
