Current Project: Delivering Life's most Treasured Moments
When a new baby is on the way, the top priority at the Beatrice Community Hosptial is delivering a healthy, happy little one in a safe and caring environment.
To do this, we need your help. The professionals at BCH rely heavily on advanced technology to provide quality care, safely and efficiently. We would like assistance to purchase two new Phillips brand Avalon CTS Wireless Fetal Monitors to provide quality care to the nearly 200 babies born each year at Beatrice Community Hospital.
We want to give Mom the best chance of having a successful and worry-free delivery. With traditional monitors Mom is required to have continuous monitoring but she is faced with having to be attached to the moitors and cords on the traditional fetal monitors, limiting movement. Studies show that frequent moving and repositioning help the labor process. Wireless monitors are used on expectant mothers to give them the freedom to move freely while in labor. Using a wireless monitor gives nurses and doctors the ability to keep a close eye on baby's heartbeat and Mom's contractions, while Mom still has the independence to walk around, use the whirlpool, and change positions frequently.
“At Beatrice Community Hospital, our nurses take pride in helping a new Mom to feel safe and comfortable during the big day. Any assistance with purchasing two new wireless monitors would help out greatly to continue to provide the great service our labor and delivery staff strive to provide.” Jill Allen, OB Coordinator
The Phillips Avalon CTS Wireless Fetal Monitors cost over $11,500 each. Our goal for the Big Give Gage is to raise $23,000 and purchase two new monitors to replace the outdated monitors currently in use, and continue to safely welcome each and every happy little bundle of joy!
