Tyrone Hospital Auxiliary Donates Items to Tyrone Regional Health Network

The Tyrone Hospital Auxiliary donated equipment to a variety of departments at Tyrone Hospital and to the Tyrone Fitness and Wellness Center. The donated equipment was purchased with funds raised by the Auxiliary through bake/soup and sandwich sales, uniform sales, and a common goods sale.

A DigiDop 301 Non-Display Rechargeable Vascular Doppler was donated to the Medical/Surgical and Intensive Care (ICU) units at Tyrone Hospital. The Doppler technology helps nursing staff to confirm a pulse in a patient extremity if it cannot be detected manually. This is necessary so that nurses can quickly assess and react to diminished or absent blood flow in a patient extremity and intervene as needed to prevent loss of function to the extremity.

Eight Infab Kiarmor Lead Free Aprons & Thyroid Shields were donated to the Tyrone Hospital radiology department. The lead aprons and shields provide protection to patients and hospital staff from radiation that is used to complete imaging exams such as x-rays, radiography, fluoroscopy and computed tomography.

Two Alera Wire Shelving Units with Casters were donated to the operating room. The shelving units allow operating room staff to store and easily relocate supplies and equipment to make needed items readily available.

An Accu-Scope 3012 Binocular Microscope was donated to the Tyrone Hospital laboratory. The microscope will be used in the laboratory's microbiology department to identify bacteria and infections. It can also be used to examine blood specimens to identify white blood cell and red blood cell abnormalities.

An Eagle Group Three Pan Open Tabletop Hot Food Buffet Table with an Enclosed Base was purchased for the nutrition services department for use in the Tyrone Hospital snack bar. The table will be used to serve hot food items in the snack bar.

The Auxiliary also helped with maintenance of equipment at the Tyrone Fitness and Wellness Center by covering fifty-percent of the expense to place new belts and pads on the Center's treadmills.
