Thanks to generous donations from The Bradshaw Gass Trust and the Ross Warburton Charitable Trust, MedEquip4Kids has been able to provide two essential pieces of equipment to Ward E5, part of the paediatrics department at The Royal Bolton Hospital.  These new machines will be of huge benefit to infants, their families and staff.

One such device required on the ward is the BiliSoft Phototherapy System, which treats jaundice amongst newborns. Implemented during phototherapy sessions, it allows a family to wrap, feed and hold their baby without any interruption to the treatment process. This will certainly improve the experience for those undergoing phototherapy, and the staff have said they plan to make use of these excellent new machines on a frequent basis.

The funds received will also be providing Mindray monitoring equipment. These machines are straightforward to use and conveniently record all of a patient’s vital signs in one place – thus ensuring an improved service for the children and their families.

Nurse Jayne Simpson said of the generous contribution: “The devices that have been donated on this occasion are important pieces of equipment for our unit that will be of huge benefit to both patients, their families and staff.”

“The specialist treatment chairs are a new vital resource for the therapy team and nursing staff to be able to safely and comfortably sit extremely complex, dependant, critical care patients out of bed. The chairs allow us to begin the patient’s rehabilitation journey by providing appropriate postural support at the same time as pressure relief to allow the patient to build the muscle strength to hold themselves up against gravity. This allows them to begin to interact with their environment in a more normal way, enabling them to participate in meaningful activities such as meal times and activities of daily living.”
