Local Construction Workers Care for Kids
14 Feb 2017
Representatives from Hitachi Construction Machinery visited Auburn Hospital recently to see the equipment they had donated to help sick children.
The equipment, valued at more than $7000, included a paediatric colour-coded resuscitation trolley and a humidifier, and was the result of a collaboration between Hitachi and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.
Auburn Hospital's deputy director of nursing and midwifery Hillary Nowlan thanked both organisations for their generosity and said the equipment had been put to good use in the emergency department and operating suite.
"Both pieces of equipment are specifically designed for babies and younger children,” she said.
“The humidifier provides oxygen support for babies and toddlers who suffer from respiratory problems, while the colour-coded resuscitation trolley allows staff quicker access to the correct selection of equipment in an emergency.
“We are really thankful for the generous support from the community and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.”
