Dalby Hospital director of nursing Bronwyn
Luxon has thanked the Rotary Club of Dalby
for fundraising efforts which have enabled the purchase of additional equipment for the hospitalâ€™s renal service.
â€œThis donation of $9,500 has been used for the purchase of a VScan Extend Dual Probe, which will be used in our renal dialysis unit,â€ Ms Luxon said. â€œThis state-of-the-art piece of diagnostic equipment is a hand-held ultrasound which is small, portable and easy to use for tasks such
as detecting the presence of fluid.
â€œThe VScan will make performing an
ultrasound a much quicker and easier process, so we are extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Dalby for this extremely generous donation.â€
Ms Luxon said the hospitalâ€™s renal service had been welcomed by local patients. â€œWe started the service in early 2016 and it has been very well received by eligible renal patients in the local area,â€ Ms Luxon said. â€œThe patients we see would have previously been travelling to Toowoomba, up to three times aÂ week, to access dialysis treatment.
â€œWe are very proud to be providing such a vital service locally, and we are overjoyed to be able to provide an enhanced service, thanks to the fundraising and generosity of our local Rotary members.â€
