Faster Care at North Shore Hospital’s Emergency Department
A new $18,500 Portable Lower Abdominal Scanner is now in use at North Shore Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED).
With generous support from the Rotary Club of East Coast Bays, who raised funds through the 16th annual "DRIVE 4 LIFE" charity golf tournament last year, the purchase of the new scanner has enabled faster and more accurate clinical care .
This new scanner measures fluid volume in the bladder allowing staff to accurately and quickly work out treatment plans to provide instant comfort to patients with symptoms of lower abdominal pain and bladder issues.
The ability to provide faster diagnosis and treatment to patients has helped to ease some of the pressure on medical staff and resources, ensuring a faster and easier patient experience.
