Opération Enfant Soleil has given $23,984 to the Hôpital de la Cité-de-la-Santé, of the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) of Laval.
That money will allow the hospital to obtain three vital signs monitors, and a ventilation device to safely resuscitate newborns
This sum will make it possible to obtain three vital signs monitors and a ventilation device to resuscitate newborns in complete safety.
The donation will also help the Cité-de-la-Santé to get three laryngoscopes with cameras and blades of different sizes for neonatal and pediatric patients, as those facilitate rapid intubation for small patients. Other equipment is also part of the purchases the hospital will be able to afford with the donation.
Opération Enfant Soleil has donated $825,172 to the Hôpital de la Cité-de-la-Santé over the years.
“The equipment provided by Opération Enfant Soleil helps us a lot, and gives us a choice of material that is more sofisticated,” said pediatric nurse from the place, Pascale Simard, via press release. “It allows us to keep our babies here, in our regional centre, instead of transferring them to centres in Montreal, Quebec or other cities.”
In total, 116 donations will be made to organizations and hospitals across the province this year.
They’ll help to realize various project related to the prevention of disease in young people through physical activity and healthy lifestyles, to offer the best medical care to children, to support medical teams and to support families when they need it most. (N.P.)
